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 (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) The believers are only those whose hearts thrill with fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His revelations are rehearsed 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) those in truth are the believers; they have degrees with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous provision. (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 you concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death, while they were looking (at it). (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) so that the truth would stand supreme and falsehood would exist no more, even though the criminals dislike 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)
