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 Most Beneficent, the Most 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) 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) Who are firm in devotion, and spend of what We have given them, (3) Such are the true believers. They have a high standing with their Lord, His forgiveness and an honourable provision made for them. (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 recall when Allah promised you that one of the two hosts would fall to you, and you wished that the one without arms should fall into your hands. But Allah sought to prove by His words the truth to be true and to annihilate the unbelievers to the last remnant (7) so that the truth would stand supreme and falsehood would exist no more, even though the criminals dislike it. (8) And recall when you implored your Lord for help and He responded to you: 'I will indeed reinforce you with a thousand angels, coming host after host.' (9) Allah made it only as glad tidings, and that your hearts be at rest therewith. And there is no victory except from Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (10)
