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 God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ 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) 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) those who are constant in prayer and spend on others out of what We provide for them as sustenance: (3) those are, in truth, the believers. They shall have degrees with their Lord and forgiveness, and a generous provision. (4) Even as your Lord caused you to go forth from your house with the truth, though a party of the believers were surely averse; (5) They disputed with you about the truth after that had become evident, as if they were being driven to death with their eyes wide open. (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) so that He might prove the truth to be true and the false to be false, however hateful this might be to those who were lost in sin. (8) And when you (Prophet Muhammad) prayed to your Lord for help, He answered: 'I am sending to your aid a thousand angels in succession' (9) God wrought this not, save as good tidings and that your hearts thereby might be at rest; help comes only from God; surely God is All-mighty, All-wise.
