This Surah concerns the punishment inflicted upon the Quraish of Mecca during the Battle of Badr. The name of the surah comes from its verses that detail how spoils of that war are to be distributed amongst the Muslim combatants.
We have written here before about the fact that no “physical”, biological blood was shed during this Battle, nor any of the acts of war waged by Prophecy. So this is taken as read here.
But what is the nature of this Surah? It is, in essence, a circuit model of consciousness whose meditation — whose reading — leads us to a situation in which Prophecy is absolutely victorious over us, the spoils of war are distributed and Allah’s gnosis of the heart is gained/released by the captives of war in according resonance with the eternally inceptive waveform of the Face.
