Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Anfal 8:1] They ask you O dear Prophet (Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) concerning the war booty; say, "Allah and the Noble Messenger are the owners of the war booty; so fear Allah and maintain friendship among yourselves; and obey Allah and His Noble Messenger, if you have faith."

[Anfal 8:2] Only they are the believers whose hearts fear when Allah is remembered, and their faith advances when His verses are recited to them, and who trust only in their Lord.

[Anfal 8:3] Those who keep the prayer established and spend in Our cause from what We have bestowed upon them.

[Anfal 8:4] These are the true Muslims; for them are ranks before their Lord, and forgiveness and an honourable sustenance.

[Anfal 8:5] The way your Lord caused you, O dear Prophet to come forth from your home with the truth; and indeed a group of Muslims were unhappy about it.

[Anfal 8:6] Disputing with you regarding the truth after it had been made clear, as if they were being herded towards a visible death.

[Anfal 8:7] And remember when Allah promised you that one of the two groups (of enemies) is for you, and you wished to get the one that posed no danger, and Allah willed to prove the truth with His Words, and to cut the origins of the disbelievers.

[Anfal 8:8] In order that He may prove the truth and disprove falsehood, even if the criminals get annoyed.
