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 concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say: "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe." (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 establish worship and spend of that We have bestowed on 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) As your Lord sent you from your home (to fight) for the true cause, a section of the faithful were averse, (5) Disputing with thee of the Truth after it had been made manifest, as if they were being driven to death visible. (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) so that He might prove the truth to be true and the false to be false, however much the wrongdoers might dislike it. (8) When ye sought help of your Lord and He answered you (saying): I will help you with a thousand of the angels, rank on rank. (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)
