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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ They ask thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say: "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe." (1) They only are the (true) believers whose hearts feel fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His revelations are recited unto them they increase their faith, and who trust in their Lord; (2) They are steadfast in prayer and spend part of what We have given them for the cause of God. (3) Such are the true believers. They have a high standing with their Lord, His forgiveness and an honourable provision made for them. (4) As thy Lord brought thee forth from thy house with the truth, and a part of the believers were averse to it, (5) Disputing with thee concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death and they (actually) saw it. (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) That He might justify Truth and prove Falsehood false, distasteful though it be to those in guilt. (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) And Allah made it not but good tidings and so that your hearts would be assured thereby. And victory is not but from Allah. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. (10)
