Yusuf Ali They ask thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say: "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe."
8 : 2
Yusuf Ali For, Believers are those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a tremor in their hearts, and when they hear His signs rehearsed, find their faith strengthened, and put (all) their trust in their Lord;
8 : 3
Yusuf Ali Who establish regular prayers and spend (freely) out of the gifts We have given them for sustenance:
8 : 4
Yusuf Ali Such in truth are the believers: they have grades of dignity with their Lord, and forgiveness, and generous sustenance:
8 : 5
Yusuf Ali Just as thy Lord ordered thee out of thy house in truth, even though a party among the Believers disliked it,
8 : 6
Yusuf Ali Disputing with thee concerning the truth after it was made manifest, as if they were being driven to death and they (actually) saw it.
8 : 7
Yusuf Ali Behold! Allah promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: Ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but Allah willed to justify the Truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the Unbelievers;-
8 : 8
Yusuf Ali That He might justify Truth and prove Falsehood false, distasteful though it be to those in guilt.
8 : 9
Yusuf Ali Remember ye implored the assistance of your Lord, and He answered you: "I will assist you with a thousand of the angels, ranks on ranks."
8 : 10
Yusuf Ali Allah made it but a message of hope, and an assurance to your hearts: (in any case) there is no help except from Allah: and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.
8 : 11
Yusuf Ali Remember He covered you with a sort of drowsiness, to give you calm as from Himself, and he caused rain to descend on you from heaven, to clean you therewith, to remove from you the stain of Satan, to strengthen your hearts, and to plant your feet firmly therewith.
8 : 12
Yusuf Ali Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."
8 : 13
Yusuf Ali This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.
8 : 14
Yusuf Ali Thus (will it be said): "Taste ye then of the (punishment): for those who resist Allah, is the penalty of the Fire."
8 : 15
Yusuf Ali O ye who believe! when ye meet the Unbelievers in hostile array, never turn your backs to them.
8 : 16
Yusuf Ali If any do turn his back to them on such a day - unless it be in a stratagem of war, or to retreat to a troop (of his own)- he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell,- an evil refuge (indeed)!
8 : 17
Yusuf Ali It is not ye who slew them; it was Allah: when thou threwest (a handful of dust), it was not thy act, but Allah´s: in order that He might test the Believers by a gracious trial from Himself: for Allah is He Who heareth and knoweth (all things).
8 : 18
Yusuf Ali That, and also because Allah is He Who makes feeble the plans and stratagem of the Unbelievers.
8 : 19
Yusuf Ali (O Unbelievers!) if ye prayed for victory and judgment, now hath the judgment come to you: if ye desist (from wrong), it will be best for you: if ye return (to the attack), so shall We. Not the least good will your forces be to you even if they were multiplied: for verily Allah is with those who believe!
8 : 20
Yusuf Ali O ye who believe! Obey Allah and His Messenger, and turn not away from him when ye hear (him speak).
