The Romans (Al-Room)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Splitting (Al-Inshiqaaq) before The Spider (Al-Ankaboot)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Alif-Lam-Mim. (1) The Romans have been defeated. (2) In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be victorious (3) within a few years: [for] with God rests all power of decision, first and last. On that day the believers too will have cause to rejoice, (4) In Allah's help to victory. He helpeth to victory whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Merciful. (5) This is Allah's promise and He does not go back on His promise. But most people do not know. (6) They know only the outward appearance of the life of the world, and they! of the Hereafter, they are neglecetful. (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) Therefore evil was the end of those who did evil, for they denied the signs of God and made fun of them. (10)
