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 Compassionate, the 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) The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Quran) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); (2) Those who keep up prayer and spend (benevolently) out of what We have given them. (3) These are the believers in truth; they shall have from their Lord exalted grades and forgiveness and an honorable sustenance. (4) Just as thy Lord ordered thee out of thy house in truth, even though a party among the Believers disliked it, (5) Who argued with you about the matter even after it had become quite clear, as if they were being pushed into (the arms of) death as they waited. (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) 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 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) And Allah made not this save as a glad tidings, and that your hearts might thereby be set at rest; and succour cometh not but from Allah. Verily Allah is Mighty, Wise. (10)
