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 Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ They ask you about the spoils of war. Say, "They belong to God and His Messenger. So fear God, and set things right among yourselves, and obey God and His Messenger, if you are true believers: (1) Those only are believers who, when God is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His signs are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust, (2) Who establish regular prayers and spend (freely) out of the gifts We have given them for sustenance: (3) those in truth are the believers; they have degrees with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous provision. (4) As thy Lord brought thee forth from thy house with the truth, and a part of the believers were averse to it, (5) disputing with thee concerning the truth after it had become clear, as though they were being driven into death with their eyes wide open. (6) [Remember, O believers], when Allah promised you one of the two groups - that it would be yours - and you wished that the unarmed one would be yours. But Allah intended to establish the truth by His words and to eliminate the disbelievers (7) that He might prove the truth to be true and the false to be false, however averse the evil-doers might be 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) Allah made it but a message of hope, and an assurance to your hearts: (in any case) there is no help except from Allah: and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise. (10)
