surah Anfal
What qualities of believers have been described in surah Anfal? Today we will talk about surah Anfal, and the qualities of believers as discussed in it. In addition to much important information about it. Let’s get started.

What qualities of believers have been described in surah al Anfal? From the verses of surah al Anfal, the qualities of believers are:      

The ones whose hearts are filled with fear when hearing Allah’s name, when they hear the verses of the holy Quran their faith strengthens and increases their desire to do good deeds. They depend on Allah alone, knowing that he is the only one who can help them. The true believer is the one who prays day and night. They are the ones who spend their money for the sake of Allah.

Here are the verses that describe the true believers:

إِنَّمَا ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ ٱلَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ ٱللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ ءَايَـٰتُهُۥ زَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَـٰنًۭا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ ٢

The ˹true˺ believers are only those whose hearts tremble at the remembrance of Allah, whose faith increases when His revelations are recited to them, and who put their trust in their Lord.

ٱلَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَـٰهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ ٣

˹They are˺ those who establish prayer and donate from what We have provided for them.

أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ حَقًّۭا ۚ لَّهُمْ دَرَجَـٰتٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَمَغْفِرَةٌۭ وَرِزْقٌۭ كَرِيمٌۭ ٤

It is they who are the true believers. They will have elevated ranks, forgiveness, and an honorable provision from their Lord.
Why was surah Anfal revealed?
surah Anfal was revealed to clarify some matters that happened before and after the battle of Badr.

They ask you ˹O Prophet˺ regarding the spoils of war. Say, “Their distribution is decided by Allah and His Messenger. So be mindful of Allah, settle your affairs, and obey Allah and His Messenger if you are ˹true˺ believers.”

Hadith on surah al Anfal.
The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said:
“On Judgement Day, I will intercede for one who recites surah Anfal and Taubah and testify that he was not a hypocrite. Moreover, for every hypocrite man and woman in the world, that person will receive the reward of 10 Hasanah (righteous deeds), 10 of his sins will be wiped away, will elevate 10 levels, and the throne and its bearers will salute him in this worldly life.:
Benefits of Surah Anfal
The holy Quran is a cure and guidance to us all, reciting each letter of the holy Quran gives you 10 rewards. The prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said:

“Whoever recites a letter from the book of Lord, he will be credited with the good deed and a good deed gets a tenfold reward?”

Reciting it carries many rewards for its reciter as the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said:

“On Judgement Day, I will intercede for one who recites surah an Anfal and Taubah and testify that he was not a hypocrite. Moreover, for every hypocrite man and woman in the world, that person will receive the reward of 10 Hasanah (righteous deeds), 10 of his sins will be wiped away, will elevate 10 levels, and the throne and its bearers will salute him in this worldly life.”

 

Abu Abdillah said:

“One who writes surah al Anfal and ties it to his elbow will gain the right he was entitled to when referring to the ruler and will be victorious over whoever he disputes/fights with. Also, he/she will be happy and this surah will be like a firm fortress for him.”

Abu Abdillah also said:
“He who recites surah Anfal 7 times with a pure intention and considering its meaning, will be freed from prison or oppression against him.”
