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 (the believers) ask you (Muhammad) about the booty captured (from the enemies) during a war. Tell them, "It belongs to God and the Messenger. If you have faith, have fear of God. Settle the disputes among yourselves and obey God and His Messenger." (1) The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Quran) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); (2) Those who keep up prayer and spend (benevolently) out of what We have given them. (3) These are the true Muslims; for them are ranks before their Lord, and forgiveness and an honourable sustenance. (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) 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) God promised you that one of the two parties would fall to you, and you wished that the one without sting should be yours, but God wanted to establish the truth by His words and cut off the root of those who denied the truth -- (7) so that the truth would stand supreme and falsehood would exist no more, even though the criminals dislike it. (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) 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)
