Our dear Md. Shafiq al-Tablighee, your so called god says in Surat al-Anfal: 41

واعلموا أنما غنمتم من شيء فأن لله خمسه وللرسول

Or: And you (pl.) know that if you loot something, then truly to Lah (see below) belongs one fifth (of the loot) and to his messenger.

al-Tabari realized that this is very strange syntax and he translates it to 3rd century Arabic as follows:

وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا غَنِمْتُم مِّن شَيْءٍ is translated as: واعلموا، أيها المؤمنون ، أن ما غنمتم من غنيمة Or: And you (pl.) Know O believers, truly whatever you looted from the loot/booty

Now it makes sense

Then al-Tabari translates فأن لله خمسه وللرسول or Then one fifth of the booty/loot goes to Lah (see Surat al-Fatiha: 2 and the word "To Lah") and his messenger, فإن للرسول خمسه or Then one fifth (of the booty/loot) goes to His messenger. And now the verse makes sense.

After all how can Allah get his share of the loot so all of it goes to Muhammad.

Notice that al-Tabari has no idea what this part of the verse means and this is why he repeats his mantra:

اختلف أهل التأويل في تأويل ذلك

Or: al-Mufasereen disagreed about explaining of the verse. What a disaster

Still the meaning is: Muslims loot poor kuffar like your Hindu ancestors and 1/5 of the booty/loot goes to your Allah aka Lah and his messenger.

The question is how do we get to your Allah and his rasul share of the loot?

So much for Islamic law
