The Spoils of War (Al-Anfaal)
75 verses, revealed in Medina after The Heifer (Al-Baqarah) before The Amramites (Al-Imraan)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ They ask you about the spoils (of war). Say: 'The spoils belong to Allah and the Messenger. Therefore, have fear of Allah and set things right between you. Obey Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers' (1) They only are the (true) believers whose hearts feel fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His revelations are recited unto them they increase their faith, and who trust in their Lord; (2) Who establish regular prayers and spend (freely) out of the gifts We have given them for sustenance: (3) These are the believers in truth; they shall have from their Lord exalted grades and forgiveness and an honorable sustenance. (4) Even as your Lord caused you to go forth from your house with the truth, though a party of the believers were surely averse; (5) Arguing with you concerning the truth after it had become clear, as if they were being driven toward death while they were looking on. (6) (Remember) when Allah promised to grant you one of the two parties (at Badr), and you wished for the one that was not strong. Allah wanted to establish the truth by His Words and to sever the unbelievers to the last, (7) In order that He may prove the truth and disprove falsehood, even if the criminals get annoyed. (8) When you (believers) begged for assistance from your Lord, He said, "I am helping you with a thousand angels, all in rows marching one after the other". (9) And Allah did this just for your happiness and for your hearts to gain contentment; and help does not come except from Allah; indeed Allah is Almighty, Wise. (10)
