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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ They ask you concerning the spoils of war? Tell them: 'The spoils of war belong to Allah and the Messenger. So fear Allah, and set things right between you, and obey Allah and His Messenger if you are true believers. (1) Those only are believers who, when God is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His signs are recited to them, it increases them in faith, and in their Lord they put their trust, (2) those who are constant in prayer and spend on others out of what We provide for them as sustenance: (3) Such are the true believers. Their reward from their Lord will be high ranks, forgiveness, and a generous provision. (4) EVEN AS thy Sustainer brought thee forth from thy home [to fight] in the cause of the truth, although some of the believers were averse to 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) God promised you that one of the two parties would fall to you, and you wished that the one without sting should be yours, but God wanted to establish the truth by His words and cut off the root of those who denied the truth -- (7) and that He might verify the truth and prove untrue the untrue, though the sinners were averse to it. (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) And Allah made it not but good tidings and so that your hearts would be assured thereby. And victory is not but from Allah. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. (10)
