Hizb 19
Juz 10
Say thou unto those who have disbelieved: if they desist, that which is past shall be forgiven them, and if they return, then already gone forth is the dispensation of the ancients. (38) And fight them until no mischief remains and the entire religion is only for Allah; then if they desist, Allah sees all what they do. (39) If the (unbelievers) turn away from the faith, God is you (believers) best Guardian and best Helper. (40) ۞ And know that whatever you take as war booty, a fifth of that belongs to Allah and His Noble Messenger, and to relatives, and orphans, and the needy, and the traveller if you have accepted faith in Allah and what We sent down to Our bondman on the decisive day the day when two armies had met; and Allah is Able to do all things. (41) When you were on the near bank and the disbelievers on the far bank, and the caravan below you; and had you made an agreement between one another, you would have failed to reach on the appointed time but this is in order that Allah may complete a thing that must be done that he who dies may die by a clear proof and he who lives may live by a clear proof; and indeed Allah is surely, All Hearing, All Knowing. (42) When Allah showed them to you in your dream as few; and if He had shown them to you as many you would certainly have become weak-hearted and you would have disputed about the matter, but Allah saved (you); surely He is the Knower of what is in the breasts. (43) And when He showed them to you, when you met, as few in your eyes and He made you to appear little in their eyes, in order that Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, and to Allah are all affairs returned.
