Surah Info


They ask you ˹O Prophet˺ regarding the spoils of war. Say, “Their distribution is decided by Allah and His Messenger. So be mindful of Allah, settle your affairs, and obey Allah and His Messenger if you are ˹true˺ believers.”
The ˹true˺ believers are only those whose hearts tremble at the remembrance of Allah, whose faith increases when His revelations are recited to them, and who put their trust in their Lord.
˹They are˺ those who establish prayer and donate from what We have provided for them.
It is they who are the true believers. They will have elevated ranks, forgiveness, and an honourable provision from their Lord.
Similarly, when your Lord brought you ˹O Prophet˺ out of your home for a just cause, a group of believers was totally against it.
They disputed with you about the truth after it had been made clear, as if they were being driven to death with their eyes wide open.
˹Remember, O  believers,˺ when Allah promised ˹to give˺ you the upper hand over either target, you wished to capture the unarmed party.1 But it was Allah’s Will to establish the truth by His Words and uproot the disbelievers;
to firmly establish the truth and wipe out falsehood—even to the dismay of the wicked.
