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) The Romans have been defeated. (2) in the lands close-by; yet it is they who, notwithstanding this their defeat, shall be victorious (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) He helps whomever He wants. He is Majestic and All-merciful. (5) This is the promise of God. God does not ignore His promise, but many people do not know. (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 through the land to see how terrible was the end of the people who lived before them. The people who lived before them were stronger than them in might, in tilling, and in developing the earth. Our Messengers came to them with clear miracles. God did not do an injustice to them but they wronged themselves. (9) The end of the evil-doers was terrible, for they had rejected the revelations of God and mocked them. (10)
