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 Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ They ask thee (O Muhammad) of the spoils of war. Say: The spoils of war belong to Allah and the messenger, so keep your duty to Allah, and adjust the matter of your difference, and obey Allah and His messenger, if ye are (true) believers. (1) They only are the (true) believers whose hearts feel fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His revelations are recited unto them they increase their faith, and who trust in their Lord; (2) those who are constant in prayer and spend on others out of what We provide for them as sustenance: (3) These are the believers in truth; they shall have from their Lord exalted grades and forgiveness and an honorable sustenance. (4) It is like when your Lord caused you to leave your home with the truth, though some of the believers disliked it. (5) and they disputed with you concerning the truth after it had become manifest, as though they were being driven to their death with open eyes. (6) [Remember, O believers], when Allah promised you one of the two groups - that it would be yours - and you wished that the unarmed one would be yours. But Allah intended to establish the truth by His words and to eliminate the disbelievers (7) That He might cause the Truth to triumph and bring vanity to naught, however much the guilty might oppose; (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) And Allah made not this save as a glad tidings, and that your hearts might thereby be set at rest; and succour cometh not but from Allah. Verily Allah is Mighty, Wise. (10)
