The Romans (Al-Room)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Splitting (Al-Inshiqaaq) before The Spider (Al-Ankaboot)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ Alif. Lam. Mim. (1) Defeated have been the Byzantines (2) In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. (3) To Allah belongs the Command before and after, and on that Day the believers will rejoice (4) In the help of God. He helps whom He will; He is all-mighty, ever-merciful. (5) This is the promise of God. God does not ignore His promise, but many people do not know. (6) They know only the outside appearance of the life of the world (i.e. the matters of their livelihood, like irrigating or sowing or reaping, etc.), and they are heedless of the Hereafter. (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) And did they not travel in the land to see what sort of fate befell those before them? They were stronger than them, and they cultivated the land and inhabited it more than them, and their Noble Messengers came to them with clear proofs; so it did not befit Allah’s Majesty to oppress them, but it was they who used to wrong themselves. (9) Then the end of those who committed evil was evil, for they belied the signs of God, and they derided them. (10)
