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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Alif, Lam, Meem. (1) Defeated have been the Byzantines (2) In a near land, and they, after being vanquished, shall overcome, (3) in a few years. To God belongs the Command before and after, and on that day the believers shall rejoice (4) He helps whomever He wants. He is Majestic and All-merciful. (5) (It is) a Promise of Allah (i.e. Allah will give victory to the Romans against the Persians), and Allah fails not in His Promise, but most of men know not. (6) They know what is apparent of the worldly life, but they, of the Hereafter, are unaware. (7) Do they not contemplate within themselves? Allah has not created the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in truth and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people, in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord, are disbelievers. (8) Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them? They were stronger than these in power, and they dug the earth and built upon it more than these have built. Messengers of their own came unto them with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty). Surely Allah wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves. (9) The end of the evil-doers was terrible, for they had rejected the revelations of God and mocked them. (10)
