List Of Sura's

Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Our Prophet (PBH), through the very first revelation of the Quran, was ordered:
“Recite in the name of your Fosterer…” (Chapter 96: Verse 1) and the name of his and our Fosterer is Allah (SWT), as is evident from the very first verse of the first chapter of the Quran:
“Praise is due only for Allah (SWT), the Fosterer of the worlds”. (Chapter 1: Verse 1)
In view of this order of Allah (SWT), we should recite/read before starting the recitation or reading of the Holy Quran which is a part of the Quran, occurring at the beginning of 113 out of 114 chapters of the Quran and also as part of Chapter 27: Verse 30 of the Quran. Through Chapter 16: Verse 98, Allah Taala further orders:
“So when you recite/read the Quran, seek the protection of Allah from the accursed devil”.
This means that we are required to pray; (Aoozu Billahi min Ash shaitaanir Rajeem) meaning: “I seek the protection of Allah from the accursed devil”, even before reciting or reading: (Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem)

Shuru Allah ke naam se jo hum per taras kha ker faida pahunchane wala hai


The booty of war is to be distributed in accordance with the orders of Allah (SWT) and His messenger [See also Verse: 41].


Some important qualities of the believers are described.

those are the believers in truth, for them there are ranks with their Fosterer and protective forgiveness and an honoured provision.

These Verses deal with the battle between Muslims from Madina with the Non-Muslims from Makkah fought in 2H at Badr, 3 days’ journey from Madina. A caravan of Makkan Non – Muslims was returning from Syria to Makkah. It was possible for the Muslims to stop the caravan but they did not do so. Mean while, Abu Jahal, an enemy of Islam started from Makkah with a strong army to help the caravan. Muslims were ordered to fight against the army, being assured that they would be helped through angels. They were also made fresh through sleep and rain water. In short 313 Muslims fought with 1000 infidels and defeated them. This victory gave the Prophet (PBH) new prestige. The victory was due to the help of Allah (SWT) Who had also cast terror into the hearts of Non–Muslims, indicating that if He helps them even a small unarmed group can defeat a large armed and organised group.


And a party of the believers certainly disliked the manner in which your Fosterer made you to go out of your house in the (cause of) truth.

They disputed with you about the truth after it had been made clear, as if they were being driven towards death and they were seeing (it).

“Same to Verse No.4”


And (remember), when Allah promised you (to grant victory at Badr over) one of the two parties, (assuring) that it will be yours, then (at that time) you liked that the one without weapons should be yours while Allah intended to prove true the truth by His words and to cut off the root of the infidels,

that He might prove true the truth and falsify the falsehood though the criminals disliked.

When you sought help from your Fosterer, He responded to you (saying), “”I will certainly help you with one thousand of the angels following one another.””

“Same to Verse No.4”


And Allah did not make it (anything) but a good news, that your hearts might be at peace through it. And there is no help except (that) from Allah, Allah is certainly Mighty, Wise. (R 1)

That is for you, so taste it, and (know) that the punishment of the fire is for the infidels.

and whoever turns his back on that day, unless (it be for) altering his position (as a strategy) for the war or to withdraw (to join his) group, then he indeed becomes deserving of the anger of Allah and his settling place is hell and it is an evil destination.

That is for you, and (know) that Allah is the Weakener of the plan of the infidels.

“Same to Verse No.4”


If you wanted a decision then the decision has come to you, and if you desist then it will be better for you and if you return then We (too) will return, and your group will not save you from anything though it may (consist of) many (people), because Allah is with the believers. (R 2)
