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 ask you about the spoils of war. Say, "They belong to God and His Messenger. So fear God, and set things right among yourselves, and obey God and His Messenger, if you are true 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) Who are firm in devotion, and spend 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) As it was your Lord who rightfully brought you forth from your house, even though some of the believers disliked it, (5) They argued with you about the truth after it had been made clear, as though they were being led to certain death while looking. (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 should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals disliked it. (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) 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)
