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 Most Merciful
۞ They ask you concerning the spoils of war? Tell them: 'The spoils of war belong to Allah and the Messenger. So fear Allah, and set things right between you, and obey Allah and His Messenger if you are true believers. (1) Those only are believers whose hearts become full of fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His communications are recited to them they increase them in faith, and in their Lord do they trust. (2) Those who keep the prayer established and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them. (3) it is they, they who are truly believers! Theirs shall be great dignity in their Sustainer's sight, and forgiveness of sins, and a most excellent 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) Disputing with thee respecting the right cause after it had become manifest, as though they were led forth unto death while they looked on. (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) 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) God only did this to give you good news, and so that your hearts might be set at rest, for help comes from God alone. Surely, God is Mighty and Wise. (10)
