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 Most Beneficent, the Most 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) Only they are true believers whose hearts fill up with awe when the name of God is mentioned; and their faith is further strengthened when His messages are read out to them; and those who place their trust in their Lord, (2) Who establish prayer and who expend of that wherewith We have provided them. (3) those are, in truth, the believers. They shall have degrees with their Lord and forgiveness, and a generous provision. (4) As thy Lord brought thee forth from thy house with the truth, and a part of the believers were averse to it, (5) Disputing with thee concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death and they (actually) saw it. (6) And when God promised you one of the two parties should be yours, and you were wishing that the one not accoutred should be yours; but God was desiring to verify the truth by His words, and to cut off the unbelievers to the last remnant, (7) so that He might prove the truth to be true and the false to be false, however much the wrongdoers might dislike it. (8) When you prayed to your Lord for help, He answered, "I am sending to your aid a thousand angels in succession." (9) Allah made it only as glad tidings, and that your hearts be at rest therewith. And there is no victory except from Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (10)
