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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ THEY WILL ASK thee about the spoils of war. Say: "All spoils of war belong to God and the Apostle." Remain, then, conscious of God, and keep alive the bonds of brotherhood among yourselves, and pay heed unto God and His Apostle, if you are [truly] believers! (1) The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely - (2) They are steadfast in prayer and spend part of what We have given them for the cause of God. (3) Such people are indeed true believers. They have high ranks with their Lord, and forgiveness for their sins and an honourable sustenance. (4) It is like when your Lord caused you to leave your home with the truth, though some of the believers disliked it. (5) and they disputed with you concerning the truth after it had become manifest, as though they were being driven to their death with open eyes. (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) 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) He gave you the good news only to reassure your hearts, for victory comes from God alone, and certainly God is all-mighty and all-wise. (10)
