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 Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ They ask you about the spoils (of war). Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger. Therefore, have fear of Allah and set things right between you. Obey Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers' (1) The true believers are those who, when Allah's name is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His verses are recited to them their faith grows, and who put their trust in their Lord; (2) The ones who establish prayer, and from what We have provided them, they spend. (3) Those are they who are in truth believers. For them are grades (of honour) with their Lord, and pardon, and a bountiful provision. (4) The way your Lord caused you, O dear Prophet to come forth from your home with the truth; and indeed a group of Muslims were unhappy about 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) 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 should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals disliked it. (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) God wrought this not, save as good tidings and that your hearts thereby might be at rest; help comes only from God; surely God is All-mighty, All-wise. (10)
