In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . They ask thee ( O Muhammad ) of the spoils of war . Say : The spoils of war belong to Allah and the messenger , so keep your duty to Allah , and adjust the matter of your difference , and obey Allah and His messenger , if ye are ( true ) believers .

2 . They only are the ( true ) believers whose hearts feel fear when Allah is mentioned , and when the revelations of Allah are recited unto them they increase their faith , and who trust in their Lord ;

3 . Who establish worship and spend of that We have bestowed on them .

4 . Those are they who are in truth believers . For them are grades ( of honor ) with their Lord , and pardon , and a bountiful provision .

5 . Even as thy Lord caused thee ( Muhammad ) to go forth from thy home with the Truth , and lo! a party of the believers were averse ( to it ) ,

6 . Disputing with thee of the Truth after it had been made manifest , as if they were being driven to death visible .

7 . And when Allah promised you one of the two bands ( of the enemy ) that it should be yours , and ye longed that other than the armed one might be yours . And Allah willed that He should cause the Truth to triumph by His words , and cut the root of the disbelievers ;

8 . That He might cause the Truth to triumph and bring vanity to naught , however much the guilty might oppose ;

9 . When ye sought help of your Lord and He answered you ( saying ) : I will help you with a thousand of the angels , rank on rank .

10 . Allah appointed it only as good tidings , and that your hearts thereby might be at rest . Victory cometh only by the help of Allah . Lo! Allah is Mighty , Wise .

11 . When he made the slumber fall upon you as a reassurance from Him and sent down water from the sky upon you , that thereby He might purify you , and remove from you the fear of Satan , and make strong your hearts and firm ( your ) feet thereby .

12 . When thy Lord inspired the angels , ( saying : ) I am with you . So make those who believe stand firm . I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve . Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger .

13 . That is because they opposed Allah and His messenger . Whoso opposeth Allah and His messenger , ( for him ) lo! Allah is severe in punishment .

14 . That ( is the award ) , so taste it , and ( know ) that for disbelievers is the torment of the Fire .

15 . O ye who believe , When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle , turn not your backs to them .

16 . Whoso on that day turneth his back to them , unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company , he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah , and his habitation will be hell , a hapless journey ' s end .

17 . Ye ( Muslims ) slew them not , but Allah slew them . And thou ( Muhammad ) threwest not when thou didst throw , but Allah threw , that He might test the believers by a fair test from Him . Lo! Allah is Hearer , Knower .

18 . That ( is the case ) ; and ( know ) that Allah ( it is ) who maketh weak the plan of disbelievers .

19 . ( O Qureysh! ) If ye sought a judgment , now hath the judgment come unto you . And if ye cease ( from persecuting the believers ) it will be better for you , but if ye return ( to the attack ) We also shall return . And your host will avail you naught , however numerous it be , and ( know ) that Allah is with the believers ( in His guidance ) .

20 . O ye who believe! Obey Allah and His messenger , and turn not away from him when ye hear ( him speak ) .

21 . Be not as those who say , We hear , and they hear not .

22 . Lo! the worst of beasts in Allah ' s sight are the deaf , the dumb , who have no sense .

23 . Had Allah Known of any good in them He would have made them hear , but had He made them hear they would have turned away , averse .

24 . O ye who believe ; Obey Allah , and the messenger when He calleth you to that which quickeneth you , and know that Allah cometh in between the man and his own heart , and that He it is unto Whom ye will be gathered .

25 . And guard yourselves against a chastisement which cannot fall exclusively on those of you who are wrong doers , and know that Allah is severe in punishment .

26 . And remember , when ye were few and reckoned feeble in the land , and were in fear lest men should extirpate you , how He gave you refuge , and strengthened you with His help , and made provision of good things for you , that haply ye might be thankful .

27 . O ye who believe! Betray not Allah and His messenger , nor knowingly betray your trusts .

28 . And know that your possessions and your children are a test , and that with Allah is immense reward .

29 . O ye who believe! If ye keep your duty to Allah , He will give you discrimination ( between right and wrong ) and will rid you of your evil thoughts and deeds , and will forgive you . Allah is of infinite bounty .

30 . And when those who disbelieve plot against thee ( O Muhammad ) to wound thee fatally , or to kill thee or to drive thee forth ; they plot , but Allah ( also ) plotteth ; and Allah is the best of plotters .

31 . And when Our revelations are recited unto them they say : We have heard . If we wish we can speak the like of this . Lo! this is naught but fables of the men of old .

32 . And when they said : O Allah! If this be indeed the truth from Thee , then rain down stones on us or bring on us some painful doom!

33 . But Allah would not punish them while thou wast with them , nor will He punish them while they seek forgiveness .

34 . What ( plea ) have they that Allah should not punish them , when they debar ( His servants ) from the Inviolable Place of Worship , though they are not its fitting guardians . Its fitting guardians are those only who keep their duty to Allah . But most of them know not .

35 . And their worship at the ( holy ) House is naught but whistling and hand clapping . Therefore ( it is said unto them ) : Taste of the doom because ye disbelieve .

36 . Lo! those who disbelieve spend their wealth in order that they may debar ( men ) from the way of Allah . They will spend it , then it will become an anguish for them , then they will be conquered . And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto hell ,

37 . That Allah may separate the wicked from the good . The wicked will He place piece upon piece , and heap them all together , and consign them unto hell . Such verily are the losers .

38 . Tell those who disbelieve that if they cease ( from persecution of believers ) that which is past will be forgiven them ; but if they return ( thereto ) then the example of the men of old hath already gone ( before them , for a warning ) .

39 . And fight them until persecution is no more , and religion is all for Allah . But if they cease , then lo! Allah is Seer of what they do .

40 . And if they turn away , then know that Allah is your Befriender , a transcendent Patron , a transcendent Helper!

41 . And know that whatever ye take as spoils of war , lo! a fifth thereof is for Allah , and for the messenger and for the kinsmen ( who hath need ) and orphans and the needy and the wayfarer ; if ye believe in Allah and that which We revealed unto Our slave on the Day of Discrimination , the day when the two armies met . And Allah is Able to do all things .

42 . When ye were on the near bank ( of the valley ) and they were on the yonder bank , and the caravan was below you ( on the coast plain ) . And had ye trysted to meet one another ye surely would have failed to keep the tryst , but ( it happened , as it did , without the forethought of either of you ) that Allah might conclude a thing that must be done ; that he who perished ( on that day ) might perish by a clear proof ( of His sovereignty ) and he who survived might survive by a clear proof ( of His sovereignty ) . Lo! Allah in truth is Hearer , Knower .

43 . When Allah showed them unto thee ( O Muhammad ) in thy dream as few in number , and if He had shown them to thee as many , ye ( Muslims ) would have faltered and would have quarrelled over the affair . But Allah saved ( you ) . Lo! He knoweth what is in the breasts ( of men ) .

44 . And when He made you ( Muslims ) , when ye met ( them ) , see them with your eyes as few , and lessened you in their eyes , ( it was ) that Allah might conclude a thing that must be done . Unto Allah all things are brought back .

45 . O ye who believe! When ye meet an army , hold firm and think of Allah much , that ye may be successful .

46 . And obey Allah and His messenger , and dispute not one with another lest ye falter and your strength depart from you ; but be steadfast! Lo! Allah is with the steadfast .

47 . Be not as those who came forth from their dwellings boastfully and to be seen of men , and debar ( men ) from the way of Allah , while Allah is surrounding all they do .

48 . And when Satan made their deeds seem fair to them and said : No one of mankind can conquer you this day , for I am your protector . But when the armies came in sight of one another , he took Sight , saying : Lo! I am guiltless of you . Lo! I see that which ye see not . Lo! I fear Allah . And Allah is severe in punishment .

49 . When the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease said : Their religion hath deluded these . Whoso putteth his trust in Allah ( will find that ) lo! Allah is Mighty , Wise .

50 . If thou couldst see how the anguish receive those who disbelieve , smiting their faces and their backs and ( saying ) : Taste the punishment of burning!

51 . This is for that which your own hands have sent before ( to the Judgment ) , and ( know ) that Allah is not a tyrant to His slaves .

52 . ( Their way is ) as the way of Pharaoh ' s folk and those before them ; they disbelieved the revelations of Allah , and Allah took them in their sins . Lo! Allah is Strong , severe in punishment .

53 . That is because Allah never changeth the grace He hath bestowed on any people until they first change that which is in their hearts , and ( that is ) because Allah is Hearer , Knower .

54 . ( Their way is ) as the way of Pharoah ' s folk and those before them ; they denied the revelations of their Lord , so We destroyed them in their sins . And We drowned the folk of Pharaoh . All were evil doers .

55 . Lo! the worst of beasts in Allah ' s sight are the ungrateful who will not believe ;

56 . Those of them with whom thou madest a treaty , and , then at every opportunity they break their treaty , and they keep not duty ( to Allah ) .

57 . If thou comest on them in the war , deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them , that haply they may remember .

58 . And if thou fearest treachery from any folk , then throw back to them ( their treaty ) fairly . Lo! Allah loveth not the treacherous .

59 . And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip ( Allah ' s purpose ) . Lo! they cannot escape .

60 . Make ready for them all thou canst of ( armed ) force and of horses tethered , that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy , and others beside them whom ye know not . Allah knoweth them . Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah it will be repaid to you in full , and ye will not be wronged .

61 . And if they incline to peace , incline thou also to it , and trust in Allah . Lo! He is the Hearer , the Knower .

62 . And if they would deceive thee , then lo! Allah is sufficient for thee . He it is Who supporteth thee with His help and with the believers ,

63 . And ( as for the believers ) hath attuned their hearts . If thou hadst spent all that is in the earth thou couldst not have attuned their hearts , but Allah hath attuned them . Lo! He is Mighty , Wise .

64 . O Prophet! Allah is sufficient for thee and those who follow thee of the believers .

65 . O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight . If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred , and if there be of you a hundred steadfast they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve , because they ( the disbelievers ) are a folk without intelligence .

66 . Now . hath Allah lightened your burden , for He knoweth that there is weakness in you . So if there be of you a steadfast hundred they shall overcome two hundred , and if there be of you a thousand ( steadfast ) they shall overcome two thousand by permission of Allah . Allah is with the steadfast .

67 . It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land . Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth ( for you ) the Hereafter , and Allah is Mighty , Wise .

68 . Had it not been for an ordinance of Allah which had gone before , an awful doom had come upon you on account of what ye took .

69 . Now enjoy what ye have won , as lawful and good , and keep your duty to Allah . Lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

70 . O Prophet , Say unto those captives who are in your hands : If Allah knoweth any good in your hearts He will give you better than that which hath been taken from you , and will forgive you . Lo! Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

71 . And if they would betray thee , they betrayed Allah before , and He gave ( thee ) power over them . Allah is knower , Wise .

72 . Lo! those who believed and left their homes and strove with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah , and those who took them in and helped them ; these are protecting friends one of another . And those who believed but did not leave their homes , ye have no duty to protect them till they leave their homes ; but if they seek help from you in the matter of religion then it is your duty to help ( them ) except against a folk between whom and you there is a treaty . Allah is Seer of what ye do .

73 . And those who disbelieve are protectors one of another If ye do not so , there will be confusion in the land , and great corruption .

74 . Those who believed and left their homes and strove for the cause of Allah , and those who took them in and helped them these are the believers in truth . For them is pardon , and a bountiful provision .

75 . And those who afterwards believed and left their homes and strove along with you , they are of you ; and those who are akin are nearer one to another in the ordinance of Allah . Lo! Allah is Knower of all things .
