030.000 The Romans

 

030.001

Alif. Lam. Mim.

030.002

The Romans have been defeated

030.003

In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be victorious

030.004

Within ten years - Allah's is the command in the former case and in the latter - and in that day believers will rejoice

030.005

In Allah's help to victory. He helpeth to victory whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Merciful.

030.006

It is a promise of Allah. Allah faileth not His promise, but most of mankind know not.

030.007

They know only some appearance of the life of the world, and are heedless of the Hereafter.

030.008

Have they not pondered upon themselves ? Allah created not the heavens and the earth, and that which is between them, save with truth and for a destined end. But truly many of mankind are disbelievers in the meeting with their Lord.

030.009

Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them ? They were stronger than these in power, and they dug the earth and built upon it more than these have built. Messengers of their own came unto them with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty). Surely Allah wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves.

030.010

Then evil was the consequence to those who dealt in evil, because they denied the revelations of Allah and made a mock of them.

030.011

Allah produceth creation, then He reproduceth it, then unto Him ye will be returned.

030.012

And in the day when the Hour riseth the unrighteous will despair.

030.013

There will be none to intercede for them of those whom they made equal with Allah. And they will reject their partners (whom they ascribed unto Him).

030.014

In the day when the Hour cometh, in that day they will be sundered.

030.015

As for those who believed and did good works, they will be made happy in a Garden.

030.016

But as for those who disbelieved and denied Our revelations, and denied the meeting of the Hereafter, such will be brought to doom.

030.017

So glory be to Allah when ye enter the night and when ye enter the morning -

030.018

Unto Him be praise in the heavens and the earth! - and at the sun's decline and in the noonday.

030.019

He bringeth forth the living from the dead, and He bringeth forth the dead from the living, and He reviveth the earth after her death. And even so will ye be brought forth.

030.020

And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!

030.021

And of His signs is this: He created for you helpmeets from yourselves that ye might find rest in them, and He ordained between you love and mercy. Lo! herein indeed are portents for folk who reflect.

030.022

And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colours. Lo! herein indeed are portents for men of knowledge.

030.023

And of His signs is your slumber by night and by day, and your seeking of His bounty. Lo! herein indeed are portents for folk who heed.

030.024

And of His signs is this: He showeth you the lightning for a fear and for a hope, and sendeth down water from the sky, and thereby quickeneth the earth after her death. Lo! herein indeed are portents for folk who understand.

030.025

And of His signs is this: The heavens and the earth stand fast by His command, and afterward, when He calleth you, lo! from the earth ye will emerge.

030.026

Unto Him belongeth whosoever is in the heavens and the earth. All are obedient unto Him.

030.027

He it is Who produceth creation, then reproduceth it, and it is easier for Him. His is the Sublime Similitude in the heavens and the earth. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

030.028

He coineth for you a similitude of yourselves. Have ye, from among those whom your right hands possess, partners in the wealth We have bestowed upon you, equal with you in respect thereof, so that ye fear them as ye fear each other (that ye ascribe unto Us partners out of that which We created) ? Thus We display the revelations for people who have sense.

030.029

Nay, but those who do wrong follow their own lusts without knowledge. Who is able to guide him whom Allah hath sent astray ? For such there are no helpers.

030.030

So set thy purpose (O Muhammad) for religion as a man by nature upright - the nature (framed) of Allah, in which He hath created man. There is no altering (the laws of) Allah's creation. That is the right religion, but most men know not -

030.031

Turning unto Him (only); and be careful of your duty unto Him and establish worship, and be not of those who ascribe partners (unto Him);

030.032

Of those who split up their religion and became schismatics, each sect exulting in its tenets.

030.033

And when harm toucheth men they cry unto their Lord, turning to Him in repentance; then, when they have tasted of His mercy, behold! some of them attribute partners to their Lord

030.034

So as to disbelieve in that which We have given them. (Unto such it is said): Enjoy yourselves awhile, but ye will come to know.

030.035

Or have We revealed unto them any warrant which speaketh of that which they associate with Him ?

030.036

And when We cause mankind to taste of mercy they rejoice therein; but if an evil thing befall them as the consequence of their own deeds, lo! they are in despair!

030.037

See they not that Allah enlargeth the provision for whom He will, and straiteneth (it for whom He will). Lo! herein indeed are portents for folk who believe.

030.038

So give to the kinsman his due, and to the needy, and to the wayfarer. That is best for those who seek Allah's Countenance. And such are they who are successful.

030.039

That which ye give in usury in order that it may increase on (other) people's property hath no increase with Allah; but that which ye give in charity, seeking Allah's Countenance, hath increase manifold.

030.040

Allah is He Who created you and then sustained you, then causeth you to die, then giveth life to you again. Is there any of your (so-called) partners (of Allah) that doeth aught of that ? Praised and Exalted be He above what they associate (with Him)!

030.041

Corruption doth appear on land and sea because of (the evil) which men's hands have done, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return.

030.042

Say (O Muhammad, to the disbelievers): Travel in the land, and see the nature of the consequence for those who were before you! Most of them were idolaters.

030.043

So set thy purpose resolutely for the right religion, before the inevitable day cometh from Allah. On that day mankind will be sundered-

030.044

Whoso disbelieveth must (then) bear the consequences of his disbelief, while those who do right make provision for themselves -

030.045

That He may reward out of His bounty those who believe and do good works. Lo! He loveth not the disbelievers (in His guidance).

030.046

And of His signs is this: He sendeth herald winds to make you taste His mercy, and that the ships may sail at His command, and that ye may seek his favour, and that haply ye may be thankful.

030.047

Verily We sent before thee (Muhammad) messengers to their own folk. Then we took vengeance upon those who were guilty (in regard to them). To help believers is ever incumbent upon Us.

030.048

Allah is He Who sendeth the winds so that they raise clouds, and spreadeth them along the sky as pleaseth Him, and causeth them to break and thou seest the rain downpouring from within them. And when He maketh it to fall on whom He will of His bondmen, lo! they rejoice;

030.049

Though before that, even before it was sent down upon them, they were in despair.

030.050

Look, therefore, at the prints of Allah's mercy (in creation): how He quickeneth the earth after her death. Lo! He verily is the Quickener of the Dead, and He is Able to do all things.

030.051

And if We sent a wind and they beheld it yellow, they verily would still continue in their disbelief.

030.052

For verily thou (Muhammad) canst not make the dead to hear, nor canst thou make the deaf to hear the call when they have turned to flee.

030.053

Nor canst thou guide the blind out of their error. Thou canst make none to hear save those who believe in Our revelations so that they surrender (unto Him).

030.054

Allah is He Who shaped you out of weakness, then appointed after weakness strength, then, after strength, appointed weakness and grey hair. He createth what He will. He is the Knower, the Mighty.

030.055

And on the day when the Hour riseth the guilty will vow that they did tarry but an hour - thus were they ever deceived.

030.056

But those to whom knowledge and faith are given will say: The truth is, ye have tarried, by Allah's decree, until the Day of Resurrection. This is the Day of Resurrection, but ye used not to know.

030.057

In that day their excuses will not profit those who did injustice, nor will they be allowed to make amends.

030.058

Verily We have coined for mankind in this Qur'an all kinds of similitudes; and indeed if thou camest unto them with a miracle, those who disbelieve would verily exclaim: Ye are but tricksters!

030.059

Thus doth Allah seal the hearts of those who know not.

030.060

So have patience (O Muhammad)! Allah's promise is the very truth, and let not those who have no certainty make thee impatient.
