The Romans (Al-Room)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Splitting (Al-Inshiqaaq) before The Spider (Al-Ankaboot)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ Alif. Lam. Mim. (1) The Romans have been defeated in a nearby land and after this defeat, (2) in a land close by. But, in a few years after their defeat they shall become the victors. (3) To Allah belongs the Command before and after, and on that Day the believers will rejoice (4) In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful. (5) (It is) the promise of Allah. Never does Allah depart from His promise: but most men understand not. (6) They know what is apparent of the worldly life, but they, of the Hereafter, are unaware. (7) Do they not think deeply (in their ownselves) about themselves (how Allah created them from nothing, and similarly He will resurrect them)? Allah has created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, except with truth and for an appointed term. And indeed many of mankind deny the Meeting with their Lord. [See Tafsir At-Tabari, Part 21, Page 24]. (8) Do they not travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those before them? They were superior to them in strength: they tilled the soil and populated it in greater numbers than these have done: there came to them their messengers with Clear (Signs). (Which they rejected, to their own destruction): It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged their own souls. (9) Then the end of those who did evil was the worst [consequence] because they denied the signs of Allah and used to ridicule them. (10)
