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 God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ They (the believers) ask you (Muhammad) about the booty captured (from the enemies) during a war. Tell them, "It belongs to God and the Messenger. If you have faith, have fear of God. Settle the disputes among yourselves and obey God and His Messenger." (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) The ones who establish prayer, and from what We have provided them, they spend. (3) those are, in truth, the believers. They shall have degrees with their Lord and forgiveness, and a generous provision. (4) Even as thy Lord caused thee (Muhammad) to go forth from thy home with the Truth, and lo! a party of the believers were averse (to it). (5) They argued with you about the truth after it had been made clear, as though they were being led to certain death while looking. (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) and that He might verify the truth and prove untrue the untrue, though the sinners were averse to it. (8) When you prayed to your Lord for help, He answered, "I am sending to your aid a thousand angels in succession." (9) And God ordained this only as a glad tiding, and that your hearts should thereby be set at rest - since no succour can come from any save God: verily, God is almighty, wise! (10)
