CHAPTER: THE SPOILS OF WAR ESPECIALLY MADE LAWFUL FOR THIS UMMA  

No. 4327

It has been narrated by Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: One of the Prophets made a war. He said to his followers: One who has married a woman and wants to consummate to his marriage but has not yet done so; another who has built a house but has not yet erected its roof; and another who has bought goats and pregnantshe-camels and is waiting for their offspring-will not accommpany me. So he marched on and approached a village at or about the time of the Asr prayers. He said to the sun: Thou art subserviant (to Allaah) and so am I. O Allaah, stop it for me a little. It was stopped for him until Allaah granted him victory. The people gathered the spoils of war (at one place). A fire approached the spoils to devour them, but it did not devour them. He (the Prophet) said: Some of you have been guilty of misappropriation. So one man from each tribe should swear fealty to me. The did so (putting their hands into his). The hand of one man stuck to his hand and the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Your tribe is guilty of misappropriation. Let all the members of your tribe swear fealty to me one by one. They did so, when the hands of two or three persons got stuck with his hand. He said: You have misappropriated. So they took out gold equal in volume to the head of a cow. They-placed it among the spoils on the earth. Then the fire approached the spoils and devoured them. The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allaah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.
