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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ They ask you about the spoils (of war). Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger. Therefore, have fear of Allah and set things right between you. Obey Allah and His Messenger, if you are 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) The ones who establish prayer, and from what We have provided them, they spend. (3) Such are the true believers. They have a high standing with their Lord, His forgiveness and an honourable provision made for them. (4) It is like when your Lord caused you to leave your home with the truth, though some of the believers disliked 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 lo, God gave you the promise that one of the two [enemy] hosts would fall to you: and you would have liked to seize the less powerful one, whereas it was God's will to prove the truth to be true in accordance with His words, and to wipe out the last remnant of those who denied the truth (7) That He should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals disliked 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 Allah made it not but good tidings and so that your hearts would be assured thereby. And victory is not but from Allah. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. (10)
