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 you, [O Muhammad], about the bounties [of war]. Say, "The [decision concerning] bounties is for Allah and the Messenger." So fear Allah and amend that which is between you and obey Allah and His Messenger, if you should be believers. (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) Who are firm in devotion, and spend of what We have given them, (3) Such in truth are the believers: they have grades of dignity with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous sustenance: (4) Just as thy Lord ordered thee out of thy house in truth, even though a party among the Believers disliked 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 Allah promised you one of the two bands (of the enemy) that it should be yours, and ye longed that other than the armed one might be yours. And Allah willed that He should cause the Truth to triumph by His words, and cut the root of the disbelievers; (7) That He may manifest the truth of what was true and show the falsehood of what was false, though the guilty disliked. (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)
