The Spoils of War (Al-Anfaal)
75 verses, revealed in Medina after The Heifer (Al-Baqarah) before The Amramites (Al-Imraan)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ THEY WILL ASK thee about the spoils of war. Say: "All spoils of war belong to God and the Apostle." Remain, then, conscious of God, and keep alive the bonds of brotherhood among yourselves, and pay heed unto God and His Apostle, if you are [truly] believers! (1) Those only are believers who, when God is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His signs are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust, (2) who establish Prayer and spend out of what We have provided them. (3) These are the true Muslims; for them are ranks before their Lord, and forgiveness and an honourable sustenance. (4) (Now with regard to the spoils the same situation exists as when) your Lord brought you forth from your home in a righteous cause while a party among the believers were much averse to it. (5) They disputed with you about the truth after that had become evident, as if they were being driven to death with their eyes wide open. (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) So that Truth may be affirmed and falsehood negated, even though the sinners be averse. (8) When you prayed to your Lord for help, He answered, "I am sending to your aid a thousand angels in succession." (9) And Allah did this just for your happiness and for your hearts to gain contentment; and help does not come except from Allah; indeed Allah is Almighty, Wise. (10)
