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) Defeated have been the Byzantines (2) In the neighbouring land. But having been conquered they will conquer (3) Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians), (4) With the help of Allah; He helps whomever He wills; and only He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful. (5) This is the promise of God. God does not ignore His promise, but many people do not know. (6) They only know the palpable life of this world, and are oblivious of the Hereafter. (7) Do they not think for themselves that God did not create the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them without reason and a determined purpose? But many men reject the meeting with their Lord. (8) What, have they never journeyed in the land and seen what was the end of those before them? They were stronger in might than themselves, and they plowed the land and cultivated it more than they themselves have cultivated it. And to them, their Messengers came with clear signs, and Allah did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves. (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)
