In the Name of All‚h, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


[008:001] They ask you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) about the spoils of war. Say: "The spoils are for All‚h and the Messenger [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]." So fear All‚h and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey All‚h and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]), if you are believers.


[008:002] The believers are only those who, when All‚h is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur'‚n) are recited to them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone);


[008:003] Who perform As-Sal‚t (the prayers) and spend out of that We have provided for them.


[008:004] It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise).


[008:005] As your Lord caused you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) to go out from your home with the truth; and verily, a party among the believers disliked it,


[008:006] Disputing with you concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death, while they were looking (at it).


[008:007] And (remember) when All‚h promised you (Muslims) one of the two parties (of the enemy, i.e. either the army or the caravan) that it should be yours; you wished that the one unarmed (the caravan) should be yours, but All‚h willed to justify the truth by His Words and to cut off the roots of the disbelievers (i.e. in the battle of Badr).


[008:008] That He might cause the truth to triumph and bring falsehood to nothing, even though the MujrimŻn (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals) hate it.
