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, most benevolent, ever-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) Only they are the believers whose hearts fear when Allah is remembered, and their faith advances when His verses are recited to them, and who trust only in their Lord. (2) Those who keep the prayer established and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them. (3) Those: it is they who are the true believers. For them are degrees with their Lord and forgiveness and a provision honourable. (4) As it was your Lord who rightfully brought you forth from your house, even though some of the believers disliked it, (5) Who argued with you about the matter even after it had become quite clear, as if they were being pushed into (the arms of) death as they waited. (6) And when Allah promised you one of the two bands (of the enemy) that it should be yours, and ye longed that other than the armed one might be yours. And Allah willed that He should cause the Truth to triumph by His words, and cut the root of the disbelievers; (7) That He might cause the truth to triumph and bring falsehood to nothing, even though the Mujrimun (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals, etc.) hate 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) He gave you the good news only to reassure your hearts, for victory comes from God alone, and certainly God is all-mighty and all-wise. (10)
