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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Alif-Lam-Mim. (1) Defeated have been the Byzantines (2) In a near land, and they, after being vanquished, shall overcome, (3) In a few years (less than ten). God's is the imperative first and last. On 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) (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 the outward of this world's life, but of the hereafter they are absolutely heedless. (7) Ponder they not in their minds: Allah hath not created the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between the twain save with a purpose and for a term appointed? And verily many men in the meeting of their Lord are unbelievers. (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) Evil was the end of the harmdoers, because they belied the verses of Allah and mocked at them. (10)
