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) When God is mentioned, the true believers begin to feel fear of Him in their hearts and when His revelations are recited to them their faith strengthens. In God alone do they trust. (2) who pray regularly and give in alms out of what We have provided for them. (3) These are the true Muslims; for them are ranks before their Lord, and forgiveness and an honourable sustenance. (4) [It is] just as when your Lord brought you out of your home [for the battle of Badr] in truth, while indeed, a party among the believers were unwilling, (5) Disputing with you regarding the truth after it had been made clear, as if they were being herded towards a visible death. (6) And lo, God gave you the promise that one of the two [enemy] hosts would fall to you: and you would have liked to seize the less powerful one, whereas it was God's will to prove the truth to be true in accordance with His words, and to wipe out the last remnant of those who denied the truth (7) So that Truth may be affirmed and falsehood negated, even though the sinners be averse. (8) Remember when you prayed to your Lord for help, He heard you and said: "I shall send a thousand angels following behind you for your aid." (9) Allah appointed it only as good tidings, and that your hearts thereby might be at rest. Victory cometh only by the help of Allah. Lo! Allah is Mighty, Wise. (10)
