as rendered by LiteralWord by Word

(Word by Word) rendition of Surah The Spoils of War(al-Anfal)
8:1  They ask you about the spoils of war. Say, "The spoils of war (are) for Allah and the Messenger. So fear Allah and set right that (which is) between you and obey Allah and His Messenger, if you are believers."
8:2  Only the believers (are) those who when Allah is mentioned feel fear their hearts, and when are recited to them His Verses, they increase them (in) faith, and upon their Lord they put their trust.
8:3  Those who establish the prayer and out of what We have provided them they spend.
8:4  Those - they are the believers (in) truth. For them (are) ranks with their Lord and forgiveness and a provision noble.
8:5  As brought you out your Lord from your home in truth, while indeed, a party among the believers certainly disliked.
8:6  They dispute with you concerning the truth after what 0 was made clear, as if they were driven to [the] death while they (were) looking.
8:7  And when Allah promised you one (of) the two groups - that it (would be) for you - and you wished that (one) other than the armed would be for you. But Allah intended to justify the truth by His words, and cut off (the) roots (of) the disbelievers
8:8  That He might justify the truth and prove false the falsehood, even if disliked (it) the criminals.
8:9  When you were seeking help (of) your Lord and He answered [to] you, "Indeed, I am going to reinforce you with a thousand of the Angels one after another."
8:10  And not Allah made it but good tidings and so that might be at rest with it your hearts. And (there is) no [the] victory except from Allah. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
8:11  When He covered you with [the] slumber, a security from Him, and sent down upon you from the sky water, so that He may purify you with it, and take away from you evil (suggestions) (of) the Shaitaan. And to strengthen [on] your hearts and make firm with it your feet.
8:12  When inspired your Lord to the Angels, "I with you, so strengthen those who believed. I will cast in (the) hearts (of) those who disbelieved - the terror, so strike above the necks and strike from them every fingertip[s]."
8:13  That (is) because they opposed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger, then indeed, Allah (is) severe in [the] penalty.
8:14  That - "So taste it." And that, for the disbelievers (is the) punishment (of) the Fire.
8:15  O you who believe! When you meet those who disbelieve advancing, then (do) not turn to them the backs.
8:16  And whoever turns to them his back that day except (as) a strategy of war or (to) join to a group, certainly (he has) incurred wrath of Allah and his abode (is) Hell, a wretched destination.
8:17  And not you kill them, but Allah killed them. And not you threw when you threw, but Allah threw and that He may test the believers from Him (with) a trial good. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
8:18  That (is the case) and that, Allah (is) one who makes weak (the) plan (of) the disbelievers.
8:19  If you ask for victory then certainly has come to you the victory. And if you desist, then it (is) good for you, but if you return, We will return (too). And never will avail you your forces anything, even if (they are) numerous. And that Allah (is) with the believers.
8:20  O you who believe! Obey Allah and His Messenger. And (do) not turn away from while you hear.
8:21  And (do) not be like those who say, "We heard," while they (do) not hear.
8:22  Indeed, worst (of) the living creatures near Allah (are) the deaf, the dumb - those who (do) not use (their) intellect.
8:23  And if Allah (had) known in them any good, surely, He (would) have made them hear. And if He had made them hear, surely they would have turned away, while they (were) averse.
8:24  O you who believe! Respond to Allah and His Messenger when he calls you to what gives you life. And know that Allah comes (in) between a man and his heart, and that to Him you will be gathered.
8:25  And fear a trial not which will afflict those who do wrong among you exclusively. And know that Allah (is) severe (in) the penalty.
8:26  And remember when you (were) few (and) deemed weak in the earth fearing that might do away with you the men, then He sheltered you, and strengthened you with His help, and provided you of the good things so that you may (be) thankful.
8:27  O you who believe! (Do) not betray Allah and the Messenger, or betray your trusts while you know.
8:28  And know that your wealth and your children (are) a trial. And that Allah - with Him (is) a reward great.
8:29  O you who believe! If you fear Allah, He will grant you a criterion and will remove from you your evil deeds and forgive you. And Allah (is) the Possessor of Bounty, the Great.
8:30  And when plotted against you those who disbelieved that they restrain you or kill you or drive you out. And they were planning and Allah (too) was planning. And Allah is (the) Best (of) the Planners.
8:31  And when are recited to them Our Verses they say, "Verily we have heard. if we wish surely, we could say like this. This is not but tales (of) the former (people)."
8:32  And when they said, "O Allah! If this is [t] the truth from You then (send) rain upon us (of) stones from the sky or bring (upon) us a punishment painful."
8:33  But not is (for) Allah that He punishes them while you (are) among them, and not is Allah the One Who punishes them while they seek forgiveness.
8:34  But what (is) for them that not (should) Allah punish them while they hinder (people) from Al-Masjid Al-Haraam, while not they are its guardians? Not (can be) its guardians except the ones who fear Allah, but most of them (do) not know.
8:35  And not was their prayer at the House except whistling and clapping. So taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve.
8:36  Indeed, those who disbelieve, they spend their wealth to hinder (people) from (the) way (of) Allah. So they will spend it, then it will be for them a regret, then they will be overcome. And those who disbelieve, to Hell they will be gathered.
8:37  That Allah may distinguish the wicked from the good, and place the wicked some of them on others and heap them all together, and put them in Hell. Those - they (are) the losers.
8:38  Say to those who disbelieve if they cease will be forgiven for them what [verily] (is) past. But if they return then verily preceded (the) practice (of) the former (people).
8:39  And fight them until there is no oppression and is the religion all of it for Allah. But if they cease, then indeed, Allah of what they do (is) All-Seer.
8:40  And if they turn away then know that Allah (is) your Protector, Excellent (is) the Protector, and Excellent (is) the Helper.
8:41  And know that what you obtain (as) spoils of war of anything, then that, for Allah (is) one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for the near relatives, and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, if you believe in Allah, and (in) what We sent down to Our slave (on the) day (of) the criterion, (the) day (when) met the two forces. And Allah (is) on every thing All-Powerful.
8:42  When you (were) on the nearer side of the valley and they (were) on the farther side and the caravan (was) lower than you. And if you (had) made an appointment certainly you would have failed in the appointment. But that Allah might accomplish a matter (that) was destined, that (might be) destroyed (those) who (were to be) destroyed on a clear evidence and (might) live (those) who (were to) live on a clear evidence. And indeed, Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
8:43  When Allah showed them to you in your dream (as) few, and if He had shown them to you (as) many surely you would have lost courage and surely you would have disputed in the matter, but Allah saved (you). Indeed, He (is) All-Knower of what is in the breasts.
8:44  And when He showed them to you, when you met - in your eyes (as) few and He made you (appear) as few in their eyes that Allah might accomplish a matter (that) was (already) destined. And to Allah return (all) the matters.
8:45  O you who believe! When you meet a force, then be firm and remember Allah much, so that you may (be) successful.
8:46  And obey Allah and His Messenger, and (do) not dispute lest you lose courage and (would) depart your strength, and be patient. Indeed, Allah (is) with the patient ones.
8:47  And (do) not be like those who came forth from their homes boastfully and showing off (to) the people, and hinder (them) from (the) way (of) Allah. And Allah of what they do (is) All-Encompassing.
8:48  And when made fair-seeming to them the Shaitaan their deeds and he said, "No (one) (can) overcome [to] you today from the people and indeed, I am a neighbor for you." But when came in sight the two forces he turned away on his heels and said, "Indeed, I am free of you. Indeed, I see what you (do) not see, indeed, I [I] fear Allah. And Allah (is) severe (in) the penalty."
8:49  When said the hypocrites and those who - in their hearts (was) a disease, "(Had) deluded these (people) their religion." But whoever puts (his) trust in Allah then indeed, Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise."
8:50  And if you (could) see when take away souls (of) those who disbelieve the Angels, striking their faces and their backs "Taste (the) punishment (of) the Blazing Fire."
8:51  That (is) for what sent forth your hands. And indeed, Allah (is) not unjust to His slaves.
8:52  Like (the) way (of) people of Firaun and those who (were) before them. They disbelieved in (the) Signs (of) Allah, so Allah seized them for their sins. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Strong (and) severe (in) the penalty.
8:53  That (is) because Allah is not One Who changes a favor which He had bestowed on a people until they change what (is) in themselves. And indeed, Allah (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
8:54  Like (the) way (of) people of Firaun and those who (were) before them. They denied (the) Signs (of) their Lord, so We destroyed them for their sins and We drowned (the) people of Firaun and (they) all were wrongdoers.
8:55  Indeed, (the) worst (of) the living creatures near Allah (are) those who disbelieve, and they (will) not believe.
8:56  Those who - you made a covenant with them then they break their covenant [in] every time, and they (do) not fear (Allah).
8:57  So if you gain dominance over them in the war, disperse by them (those) who (are) behind them, so that they may take heed.
8:58  And if you fear from a people betrayal throw back to them on equal (terms). Indeed, Allah (does) not love the traitors.
8:59  And (let) not think those who disbelieve they can outstrip. Indeed, they (can) not escape.
8:60  And prepare for them whatever you able (to) of force and of cavalry (to) terrify therewith (the) enemy of Allah, and your enemy and others besides them, you (do) not know them (but) Allah knows them. And whatever you spend from (any) thing in (the) way (of) Allah it will be fully repaid to you, and you (will) not be wronged.
8:61  And if they incline to peace, then you (also) incline to it, and put (your) trust in Allah. Indeed, He (is) All-Hearer, All-Knower.
8:62  But if they intend to deceive you, then indeed, Allah is sufficient for you. He (is) the One Who supported you with His help and with the believers
8:63  And He (has) put affection between their hearts. If you (had) spent whatever (is) in the earth all you could not (have) put affection between their hearts, but Allah (has) put affection between them. Indeed, He (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
8:64  O Prophet! Allah (is) sufficient for you and whoever follows you of the believers.
8:65  O Prophet! Urge the believers to [the] fight. If (there) are among you twenty steadfast they will overcome two hundred. And if (there) are among you a hundred, they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (are) a people (who do) not understand.
8:66  Now Allah has lightened for you, and He knows that (there) is weakness in you. So if (there) are among you a hundred steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if (there) are among you a thousand, they will overcome two thousand with Allah's permission. And Allah (is) with the steadfast.
8:67  Not is for a Prophet that (there) should be for him prisoners of war until he has battled strenuously in the land. You desire (the) commodities (of) the world, but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise.
8:68  Had not an ordainment from Allah preceded, surely (would) have touched you for what you took - a punishment great.
8:69  So eat from what you got as war booty - lawful (and) good, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
8:70  O Prophet! Say to whoever (is) in your hands of the captives, "If Allah knows in your hearts any good, He will give you better than what was taken from you, and He will forgive you. And Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
8:71  But if they intend (to) betray you certainly they have betrayed Allah before. So He gave (you) power over them. And Allah (is) All-Knower, All-Wise.
8:72  Indeed, those who believed and emigrated and strove hard with their wealth and their lives in (the) way (of) Allah and those who gave shelter and helped those - some of them (are) allies (of) another. But those who believed and (did) not emigrate, (it is) not for you their protection (in) anything, until they emigrate. And if they seek your help in the religion, then upon you (is to) help them except against a people between you and between them (is) a treaty. And Allah of what you do (is) All-Seer.
8:73  And those who disbelieve, some of them (are) allies (to) another. If not you do it, (there) will be oppression in the earth and corruption great.
8:74  And those who believed and emigrated and strove hard in (the) way (of) Allah and those who gave shelter and helped, those - they (are) the believers (in) truth. For them (is) forgiveness and a provision noble.
8:75  And those who believed afterwards, and emigrated and strove hard with you, then those (are) of you. But those of blood relationship, some of them (are) nearer to another in (the) Book (of) Allah. Indeed, Allah of every thing (is) All-Knower.
