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 you O dear Prophet (Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) concerning the war booty; say, “Allah and the Noble Messenger are the owners of the war booty; so fear Allah and maintain friendship among yourselves; and obey Allah and His Noble Messenger, if you have faith." (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 are firm in devotion, and spend of what We have given 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) [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 may manifest the truth of what was true and show the falsehood of what was false, though the guilty disliked. (8) Remember when you prayed to your Lord for help, He heard you and said: "I shall send a thousand angels following behind you for your aid." (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. (10)
