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 (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) Those only are believers whose hearts become full of fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His communications are recited to them they increase them in faith, and in their Lord do they trust. (2) Who perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and spend out of that We have provided them. (3) those are, in truth, the believers. They shall have degrees with their Lord and forgiveness, and a generous provision. (4) It is like when your Lord caused you to leave your home with the truth, though some of the believers disliked it. (5) Disputing with you concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death, while they were looking (at it). (6) Though God promised that one of two columns (would fall to you), you desired the one that was not armed. But God wished to confirm the truth by His words, and wipe the unbelievers out to the last, (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 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 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)
