The Spoilsal-Anfāl ( الأنفال )

75 verses • revealed at Medinan

»The surah that answers the question that the believers put to the Prophet regarding how God and His Messenger would have them distribute The spoils, after the believers had differed among themselves about its disbursement. It takes its name from the term “spoils” (al-anfāl) mentioned in verse 1. The main part of this surah is a comment on the Battle of Badr (year 2/624), the first fought between the Muslims and their Meccan opponents. The Muslims, some of whom were at first reluctant to fight, won in spite of being vastly outnumbered, and began to question the distribution of the gains (spoils of war). The surah reminds them that it was God who brought about the victory. verse 41 shows how the gains were to be distributed. It advises Muslims and comments on the role of the hypocrites and on those who always break their treaties (verse 56), ending with a statement about loyalties and alliances.«

The surah is also known as Battle Gains, Booty, The Spoils of War

بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ

الهی قمشه‌ای: به نام خداوند بخشنده مهربان

يَسأَلونَكَ عَنِ الأَنفالِ ۖ قُلِ الأَنفالُ لِلَّهِ وَالرَّسولِ ۖ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَصلِحوا ذاتَ بَينِكُم ۖ وَأَطيعُوا اللَّهَ وَرَسولَهُ إِن كُنتُم مُؤمِنينَ

الهی قمشه‌ای

(ای رسول ما) امت از تو حکم انفال را سؤال کنند (یعنی غنایمی که بدون جنگ از دشمنان به دست مسلمانان آید و زمینهای خراب بی‌مالک، معادن، بیشه‌ها، فراز کوهها، کف رودها، ارث کسی که وارث ندارد، قطایع ملوک، خلاصه ثروتی که بی‌رنج مردم حاصل شود) جواب ده که انفال مخصوص خدا و رسول است (که رسول و جانشینانش به هر کس و هر قدر صلاح دانند ببخشند) پس شما مؤمنان باید از خدا بترسید و در رضایت و مسالمت و اتحاد بین خودتان بکوشید و خدا و رسول او را اطاعت کنید اگر اهل ایمانید.
