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 Most Gracious, the Most 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) Only they are true believers whose hearts fill up with awe when the name of God is mentioned; and their faith is further strengthened when His messages are read out to them; and those who place their trust in their Lord, (2) those who are constant in prayer and spend on others out of what We provide for them as sustenance: (3) Those: it is they who are the true believers. For them are degrees with their Lord and forgiveness and a provision honourable. (4) This is like what time thy Lord had caused thee to go forth from thy house for a right cause, while a party among the believers were averse. (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) And when God promised you one of the two parties should be yours, and you were wishing that the one not accoutred should be yours; but God was desiring to verify the truth by His words, and to cut off the unbelievers to the last remnant, (7) that He might prove the truth to be true and the false to be false, however averse the evil-doers might be to it. (8) When you sought aid from your Lord, so He answered you: I will assist you with a thousand of the angels following one another. (9) God only did this to give you good news, and so that your hearts might be set at rest, for help comes from God alone. Surely, God is Mighty and Wise. (10)
