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 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) When God is mentioned, the true believers begin to feel fear of Him in their hearts and when His revelations are recited to them their faith strengthens. In God alone do they trust. (2) those who are constant in prayer and spend on others out of what We provide for them as sustenance: (3) Such are the true believers. They have a high standing with their Lord, His forgiveness and an honourable provision made for them. (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 respecting the right cause after it had become manifest, as though they were led forth unto death while they looked on. (6) And lo, God gave you the promise that one of the two [enemy] hosts would fall to you: and you would have liked to seize the less powerful one, whereas it was God's will to prove the truth to be true in accordance with His words, and to wipe out the last remnant 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 sought help of your Lord and He answered you (saying): "I will help you with a thousand of the angels each behind the other (following one another) in succession." (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)
