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 you, [O Muhammad], about the bounties [of war]. Say, "The [decision concerning] bounties is for Allah and the Messenger." So fear Allah and amend that which is between you and obey Allah and His Messenger, if you should be believers. (1) Indeed the believers are those whose hearts quake at the mention of Allah, and when His verses are recited to them it increased them in faith. 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 it was your Lord who rightfully brought you forth from your house, even though some of the believers disliked it, (5) and they disputed with you concerning the truth after it had become manifest, as though they were being driven to their death with open eyes. (6) When God promised to grant you (believers) victory over either one of the two groups, you wished to have control over the unarmed one. God decided to prove (to you) the truth of His promises and to destroy the unbelievers (7) That He might justify Truth and prove Falsehood false, distasteful though it be to those in guilt. (8) When you sought aid from your Lord, so He answered you: I will assist you with a thousand of the angels following one another. (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)
