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 will question thee concerning the spoils. Say: 'The spoils belong to God and the Messenger; so fear you God, and set things right between you, and obey you God and His Messenger, if you are believers.' (1) The true believers are those who, when Allah's name is mentioned, their hearts quake, and when His verses are recited to them their faith grows, and who put their trust in their Lord; (2) Who establish worship and spend of that We have bestowed on them. (3) Are true believers. There are for them (high) ranks with their Lord, and pardon and noble provision. (4) Just as thy Lord ordered thee out of thy house in truth, even though a party among the Believers disliked it, (5) Knowing it well (that a fight in which they are to take part is about to take place), they act as though they are being driven to death which they can see before their very eyes. Despite their knowledge of the truth, they still argue with you. (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) That He might cause the Truth to triumph and bring vanity to naught, however much the guilty might oppose; (8) When you prayed to your Lord for help, He answered, "I am sending to your aid a thousand angels in succession." (9) And Allah only gave it as a good news and that your hearts might be at ease thereby; and victory is only from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise. (10)
