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 Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ They will question thee concerning the spoils. Say: 'The spoils belong to God and the Messenger; so fear you God, and set things right between you, and obey you God and His Messenger, if you are believers.' (1) true believers are those whose hearts tremble with awe at the mention of God, and whose faith grows stronger as they listen to His revelations. They are those who put their trust in their Lord, (2) Those who pray steadfastly, and spend of that which We have provided them, (3) Are true believers. There are for them (high) ranks with their Lord, and pardon and noble provision. (4) The way your Lord caused you, O dear Prophet to come forth from your home with the truth; and indeed a group of Muslims were unhappy about it. (5) Disputing with you regarding the truth after it had been made clear, as if they were being herded towards a visible death. (6) Behold! Allah promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: Ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but Allah willed to justify the Truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the Unbelievers;- (7) So that Truth may be affirmed and falsehood negated, even though the sinners be averse. (8) And recall what time ye implored our Lord and He answered you: verily I am about to succour you with a thousand of angels rank in rank. (9) And God ordained this only as a glad tiding, and that your hearts should thereby be set at rest - since no succour can come from any save God: verily, God is almighty, wise! (10)
