THIS CHAPTER was revealed after Iron 57 and before Thunder 13, a following the victory at Badr. It consists of four sections in 38 verse from Madina, except for v. 18 (II) which was revealed during the Transfer or Hijra in the year 622 A.D., and possibly v. 3 which came six years la during the truce at Hudaybiyya in the year 6 / 628. Its rhythm is sustain or punctuated by means of assonance. The chapters in the Quran now are becoming noticeably shorter. The name of the Prophet as a title is found in v. 2 (I), while "fighting" is mentioned in v. 20 (III); these form the alternate titles to the chapter. The topic discussed is the problem of conduct during warfare (I). In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful! (I)

Conduct in War: Whenever you encounter the ones who disbelieve [during war], seize them by their necks until once you have subdued them, then tie them up as prisoners, either in order to release them later on or also to ask for ransom, until war lays down her burdens. Thus shall you do-; yet if God so wished, He might defend Himself from them-in order that some of you may be tested by means of one another. The ones who have been killed in God's way will never find their actions have been in vain;
