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 thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say: "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe." (1) Believers are only they whose hearts tremble with awe whenever God is mentioned, and whose faith is strengthened whenever His messages are conveyed unto them, and who in their Sustainer place their trust (2) Those who keep up prayer and spend (benevolently) out of what We have given them. (3) Those are they who are in truth believers. For them are grades (of honour) with their Lord, and pardon, and a bountiful provision. (4) This is like what time thy Lord had caused thee to go forth from thy house for a right cause, while a party among the believers were averse. (5) They disputed with you about the truth after it had become clear, (and they went forth) as if they were being driven to death while they saw (it). (6) And recall what time Allah was promising you one of the two parties that it should be yours, and ye would fain that the one without arms was yours; whilst Allah besought to justify the truth by His words and to cut off the root of the infidels. (7) So that Truth may be affirmed and falsehood negated, even though the sinners be averse. (8) When you (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) were seeking the help of your Lord, so He answered your prayers that, “I will help you with a row of thousands of angels.” (9) God has sent this glad news to comfort your hearts. Victory is in the hands of God alone. God is Majestic and All-wise. (10)
