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. Mim. (1) Defeated have been the Byzantines (2) In a land close by; but they, (even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious- (3) Within a few (up to nine) years time; only for Allah is the command, before and after; and the believers will rejoice on that day. (4) With the help of Allah; He helps whomever He wills; and only He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful. (5) It is a promise of Allah. Allah faileth not His promise, but most of mankind know not. (6) They know an outward part of this life, but of the Everlasting Life they are inattentive. (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 never journeyed in the land and seen what was the end of those before them? They were stronger in might than themselves, and they plowed the land and cultivated it more than they themselves have cultivated it. And to them, their Messengers came with clear signs, and Allah did not wrong 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)
