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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ 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) 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 keep the prayer established and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them. (3) Such in truth are the believers: they have grades of dignity with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous sustenance: (4) As your Lord sent you from your home (to fight) for the true cause, a section of the faithful were averse, (5) Arguing with you concerning the truth after it had become clear, as if they were being driven toward death while they were looking on. (6) And recall what time Allah was promising you one of the two parties that it should be yours, and ye would fain that the one without arms was yours; whilst Allah besought to justify the truth by His words and to cut off the root of the infidels. (7) In order that he might justify the truth and falsify the false even though the guilty ones were averse. (8) Remember ye implored the assistance of your Lord, and He answered you: "I will assist you with a thousand of the angels, ranks on ranks." (9) God has sent this glad news to comfort your hearts. Victory is in the hands of God alone. God is Majestic and All-wise. (10)
