The Spoils of War (Al-Anfaal)
75 verses, revealed in Medina after The Heifer (Al-Baqarah) before The Amramites (Al-Imraan)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ They ask you about the spoils (of war). Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger. Therefore, have fear of Allah and set things right between you. Obey Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers' (1) Only they are true believers whose hearts fill up with awe when the name of God is mentioned; and their faith is further strengthened when His messages are read out to them; and those who place their trust in their Lord, (2) Who establish prayer and who expend of that wherewith We have provided them. (3) Such in truth are the believers: they have grades of dignity with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous sustenance: (4) As your Lord sent you from your home (to fight) for the true cause, a section of the faithful were averse, (5) disputing with thee concerning the truth after it had become clear, as though they were being driven into death with their eyes wide open. (6) And when Allah promised you one of the two parties that it shall be yours and you loved that the one not armed should he yours and Allah desired to manifest the truth of what was true by His words and to cut off the root of the unbelievers. (7) in order that He might verify the truth and annul the falsehood, even though the wrongdoers hated it. (8) Remember ye implored the assistance of your Lord, and He answered you: "I will assist you with a thousand of the angels, ranks on ranks." (9) God wrought this not, save as good tidings and that your hearts thereby might be at rest; help comes only from God; surely God is All-mighty, All-wise. (10)
