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) The Romans are vanquished, (2) (within a few years) they will be victorious. (3) Within three to nine years. To Allah belongs the command before and after. And that day the believers will rejoice (4) with the help of God. He helps whom He pleases: He is the Mighty, and the Merciful. (5) [This is] God's promise. Never does God fail to fulfil His promise -- but most people do not know this; (6) they know but the outer surface of this world's life, whereas of the ultimate things they are utterly 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) What, have they not journeyed in the land and beheld how was the end of those before them? They were stronger than themselves in might, and they ploughed up the earth and cultivated it more than they themselves have cultivated it; and their Messengers came to them with the clear signs; and God would never wrong them, but themselves they wronged. (9) Then the end of those who committed evil was evil, for they belied the signs of God, and they derided them. (10)
