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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ 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) 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 keep the prayer established and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them. (3) Such are the true believers. Their reward from their Lord will be high ranks, forgiveness, and a generous provision. (4) Just as thy Lord ordered thee out of thy house in truth, even though a party among the Believers disliked it, (5) Disputing with you regarding the truth after it had been made clear, as if they were being herded towards a visible death. (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 may prove the truth and disprove falsehood, even if the criminals get annoyed. (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) And Allah only gave it as a good news and that your hearts might be at ease thereby; and victory is only from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise. (10)
