Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah The Romans, The Byzantines(ar-Rum)
30:1 A. L. M.
30:2 Rome stands defeated (and occupied) —
30:3 in the land nearer, and they (i.e., the Romans), after their defeat, will soon be victorious ,
30:4 within three to nine years. The verdict is for Allah before and after, and on that day the Believers will rejoice —
30:5 over the help of Allah (against their immediate foes). He will help whom He will think proper. And He is the All-Mighty, the continuously Merciful .
30:6 (It goes as) a Promise from Allah. Allah does not act against His Own Promise, but the majority of people do not know .
30:7 They know only the apparent from the immediate life, and they, about the after-effects — they are heedless, ignorant ones .
30:8 Do they then not ponder in their ownselves (that) Allah did not create the heavens and the earth and whatever is between those two except for a due purpose and (for) an appointed term? And indeed, the majority of mankind regarding the meeting with their Nourisher-Sustainer, are surely disbelievers .
30:9 Do they then not travel in the land that they may see what became the end of those before them? They were mightier than these in physical power; and they tilled the earth and populated it even more than what the (present) people have inhabited it. And there came to them their Messengers with Al-Bayyinat. So Allah was not (such) that He may wrong them, but they had been doing wrong to themselves .
30:10 Then the ultimate end of those who did evil, was evil, because they belied Ayaatullahe (‘The Signs and Verses of Allah’) and they used to mock at this .
30:11 Allah originates the creation, then He will repeat it, then to Him you people will be returned .
30:12 And the Day the Hour establishes (itself), the criminals will feel sorry .
30:13 And there became not for them out of their self-assigned partners (to Allah) any intercessors; and they (themselves) became rejectors for their self-assigned partners .
30:14 And the Day the Hour establishes — this Day (mankind) shall be separated .
30:15 Then as for those who Believed and performed righteous deeds — so they, in the Garden, will be made to enjoy scholarly discussions .
30:16 And as for those who disbelieved and belied Ayaatina and the Meeting of the Hereafter, then those people shall be those who have entered the torment (of Hell-Fire) .
30:17 So Glory to Allah when you find the evening and when you find the morning. [This is a recommendation for the Maghrib (sunset) and the Fajr (dawn) Prayers]
30:18 And for Him is the specified Praise in the heavens and the earth and by the evening and when you face the zenith (of the sun). [This is a recommendation for the Asr and Zuhr Prayers.]
30:19 He brings out the living from the dead, and He brings out the dead from the living. And He revives the earth after its death. And thus you people would be resurrected .
30:20 And (it is) among His Signs that He created you from dust; afterwards, behold: you are humans — you are spreading and expanding (all around)!
30:21 And (it is) among His Signs that He created for you from among Anfusekum (your own Nufus or people), mates — in order that you may find solace in them. [The word Azwaj should be translated as mates because it covers both the male and female as spouses]. And He has established among you affection and mercy. Surely, in this are indeed lessons for those who think and ponder .
30:22 And creation of the heavens and the earth are among His Signs, as well as the difference of your tongues (languages) and your colours (skin). Surely, in this are indeed lessons for those who possess knowledge.
30:23 And among His Signs (are) your sleep by the night and the day, as well as your seehead of state of His Bounty. Verily, in this (are) indeed lessons for a nation who listen .
30:24 And (it is) among His Signs (that) He makes you see the lightning by way of fear and hope. And He sends down from the direction of the sky — water (as rains), and therewith revives the earth after its death. Surely, in this (are) definitely lessons for a nation who use intellect .
30:25 And (it is) among His Signs that the heaven and the earth remain stable under His Command, then when He called you — a call (received by you) from within the earth, then and there you will come out (in Resurrection) .
30:26 And to Him belongs whosoever is in the heavens and the earth. All are subservient to Him.
30:27 And He it is Who originates the creation, then will repeat it (after it has been perished), and that would be easier unto Him. And to Him Alone suits a higher similitude in the heavens and the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise .
30:28 He has set forth an example regarding your ownselves. Are there for you, out of those whom your right (hands) held in trust — as sharing partners in what We bestowed on you (as provisions) — so you are, therein, on equal footing — you fear them like you fear (for) your ownselves? Thus We provide details to the Verses for a nation who use intellect .
30:29 Nay, those who have transgressed have followed their vain desires without knowledge. Then who guides that whom Allah has allowed to go astray? And (there is) not for them, out of the helpers .
30:30 So let your face (personality) take a stand for the Unitarian Religion, a natural instinct of Allah, that on which he has created mankind. No change appears for the creation of Allah. This is the Religion, one which must remain established. But the majority of mankind do not know .
30:31 (You must be) those who permanently turn to Him (in all their needs) and be dutiful to Him; and establish As-Salat. And be not of Al-Mushrikun
30:32 of those people who split up their religion and became sects (cults). Each sect, with whatever (human-literature is) with them (are) rejoicers (therein) .
30:33 And when an affliction touched mankind, they invoked their Nourisher-Sustainer, as those who sincerely turn to Him. Afterwards, when He gave them to taste mercy from Him, behold: a group from amongst them associate partners with their Nourisher-Sustainer ,
30:34 so that they may deny what We have given them. So enjoy (for a limited period), then soon you know (your fate) .
30:35 Have We sent down unto them an authority, then it speaks of that wherewith they had been indulging in shirk?
30:36 And whenever We caused human beings to taste mercy, they rejoiced therewith; and if an evil afflicts them because of that which their hands have sent forth, instantly they go in despair.
30:37 Have they then not seen that Allah enlarges the provision for whom He thinks proper and (for some others) He keeps in limits? Definitely, in this are surely lessons for a nation who Believe .
30:38 So deliver to the close-relation his due, and to the poor one, and to the victim of travel. This is better for those who desire the Attention of Allah, and those people: they are those who attain success .
30:39 And what you gave (to people) out of Riba (usury) so that it increases in the wealth of (these) people — so, (listen clearly) it shall not increase (or multiply) in the assessment of Allah. And whatever you give out of Zakat: you intend and desire attention of Allah, then those people: they (are those) who enlarge and multiply (their wealth). [Assistance provided out of usury-money shall benefit no one, while assistance provided from Zakat shall add to and cause increase in the wealth of the recipient].
30:40 Allah is That Who created you, then provided provision to you, then will cause you to die (and) afterwards will revive you. Is (there any) out of your (so-called) partners (of Allah) who may do of this to you in any form? Glory be to Him! And He became Exalted above that they associate (as partners to Him) .
30:41 Evil has set in on the land and the sea because of what the hands of human-beings have earned (through their beliefs and actions) — so that He makes them taste some of that which they did in order that they may return (to the Book of Allah) .
30:42 Say: “Travel through the earth, then watch what became the end-result of those before (you). Most of them had been Mushrikun .
30:43 So make your face (personality) take a stand for the Established Religion before (the stage) that comes to you a Day — no withdrawal of it (is allowed) from Allah. This Day (all people) shall separate (into groups) .
30:44 Whosoever disbelieved, then his disbelief goes against him; and whoever performed righteous deeds so they prepare an (ideal) abode for their own selves .
30:45 That He may reward, those who have Believed and performed righteous deeds, out of His Bounty. Verily, He likes not the disbelievers .
30:46 And (it is) among His Signs that He sends the winds as transmitters of glad tidings, and in order that He may make you taste out of His Mercy, and so that the ships may sail under His Law, and so that you seek of His Bounty, and in order that you may pay thanks (to Allah) .
30:47 And surely, indeed We did send Messengers towards their nation. So they came to them with Al-Bayyinat . So We took vengeance (retribution) on those who committed crimes. And it was incumbent upon Us (to provide) help to the Believers .
30:48 Allah is That who directs the winds, so they lift up the clouds, then He spreads it in the sky as He thinks proper, and sets this into sections until you see the rain — it comes out from its midst. Then when He reached alongwith it whom He thinks proper out of His Ibad (human subjects) — instantly they rejoice .
30:49 And truly, they were before (the stage) that it may be sent unto them — even from (much) before this, they were surely those who go in despair .
30:50 So ponder towards the effects of Allah’s Mercy: how He revives the earth after its death. Certainly this: surely (He is) a Reviver for the dead ones, and He is All-Capable over every thing .
30:51 And if We sent the wind (of a destructive nature) and they saw it (i.e., their tilth) turned yellow (and dry) surely they deviated (from the Path) after this (scene) — they will disbelieve (henceforth) .
30:52 So verily, you do not make the dead ones listen, and you do not make the deaf hear the call, when they turned away showing (their) backs .
30:53 And you are not a guide for the blind ones against their (insistence on) ignorance. You do not make one hear except that who Believes in Ayaatina so they are Muslims .
30:54 Allah is That Who created you in (a state of) weakness, then He established strength after weakness, then after strength He brought weakness (to reappear) and extreme of age. He creates what He thinks proper. And He is All-Knowing, All-Capable .
30:55 And the Day the Hour establishes (itself), the criminals will swear that they stayed not other than an hour. Thus they used to tell lies.
30:56 And those who were bestowed Al-Ilm (‘The Knowledge’) and Faith said: “Surely, indeed you stayed, (as is written) in Kitabullah — until the Day of Resurrection; so this is the Day of Resurrection, but you people: you had not been knowing.”
30:57 So this Day, the excuses of those who transgressed shall not benefit them, and they shall not be provided a chance to repent .
30:58 And surely, indeed We have set forth for mankind in this Al-Quran from all kinds of examples. And if you came to them with a credential, surely those who have disbelieved will say: ' you people are not but followers of unreal system.'
30:59 Thus Allah puts a seal over the hearts of those who do not know.
30:60 So be patient, surely Allah’s promise is true. And let not those discourage you who have no certainty in Faith.
