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 Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ They ask thee concerning the spoils of war. Say thou: the spoils of war are Allah's and the apostle's. So fear Allah, and set right the matter among you, and obey Allah and His apostle if ye are believers. (1) Those only are believers whose hearts become full of fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His communications are recited to them they increase them in faith, and in their Lord do they trust. (2) They are steadfast in prayer and spend part of what We have given them for the cause of God. (3) those in truth are the believers; they have degrees with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous provision. (4) As it was your Lord who rightfully brought you forth from your house, even though some of the believers disliked it, (5) Arguing with you concerning the truth after it had become clear, as if they were being driven toward death while they were looking on. (6) (Remember) when Allah promised to grant you one of the two parties (at Badr), and you wished for the one that was not strong. Allah wanted to establish the truth by His Words and to sever the unbelievers to the last, (7) That He should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals disliked it. (8) When you sought aid from your Lord, so He answered you: I will assist you with a thousand of the angels following one another. (9) Allah meant this as glad tidings and that your hearts may be set at rest. For every help comes from Allah alone. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (10)
