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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ They ask thee concerning the spoils of war. Say thou: the spoils of war are Allah's and the apostle's. So fear Allah, and set right the matter among you, and obey Allah and His apostle if ye are believers. (1) true believers are those whose hearts tremble with awe at the mention of God, and whose faith grows stronger as they listen to His revelations. They are those who put their trust in their Lord, (2) Who establish regular prayers and spend (freely) out of the gifts We have given them for sustenance: (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 it was your Lord who rightfully brought you forth from your house, even 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) [Remember, O believers], when Allah promised you one of the two groups - that it would be yours - and you wished that the unarmed one would be yours. But Allah intended to establish the truth by His words and to eliminate the disbelievers (7) in order that He might verify the truth and annul the falsehood, even though the wrongdoers hated it. (8) (Remember) when you sought help of your Lord and He answered you (saying): "I will help you with a thousand of the angels each behind the other (following one another) in succession." (9) And Allah only gave it as a good news and that your hearts might be at ease thereby; and victory is only from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise. (10)
