The Romans have been defeated
in the lowest (part of) the earth , and they will be victorious after their defeat,
within some years; Allah’s is the command in the past and in the future, and on that day the believers will rejoice
with the help of Allah, He helps whom He wills and He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
(It is a) promise of Allah. Allah does not go against His promise, but the majority of human beings does not know.
They know the superficial (things) of the life of this world and they are unaware about the hereafter.
Did they not reflect among themselves, (that) Allah has not created the skies and the earth and which is between them both, but in reality and for an appointed term? But many of the human beings certainly do not believe in the meeting with their Fosterer.
Did they not travel in the earth and see how the end of those before them was (brought about)? They were more severe than them in strength and they dug the earth and built upon it more than these have built upon it. And their messengers came to them with clear proofs, so it was not Allah Who was unjust to them but they were unjust to themselves.
Then evil was the end of those who did evil, because they denied the signs of Allah and they used mock at them. (R 1)
Allah begins the creation then He gets it reproduced, then to Him you will be returned.
And on the day the hour of doom will be established, the criminals will be in despair.
And there will be no mediators for them from among their (presumed) partners (of Allah), and they will reject their (presumed) partners (of Allah).
And on the day the hour of doom will be established, on that day they will be divided:
So as for those who believed and did righteous works, they will be made happy in a garden,
and as for those who did not believe and denied Our signs and the meeting of the hereafter, those be made to be present in the punishment.
So glory be to Allah when you enter the evening and when you enter the morning.
And praise is due only for Him (both) in the skies and the earth, and (in) the evening and when are at midday.
He brings forth the living from the dead and He brings forth the dead from the living, and He gives life to the earth after its death, and thus you (too) will be brought out (again). (R 2)
And among His signs is that He created you from the soil then (after that) now you are human beings (who) are scattered (far and wide).
And among His signs is that He created from among yourselves mates for you that you might tranquility in them, and He placed between you love and mercy. Certainly there are signs in that for people who reflect.
And among His signs is the creation of the skies and the earth and the difference in your languages and your colors. Certainly there are signs in that for the learned.
And among His signs is your sleeping at night, and the day when you seek from His grace. Certainly there are signs in that for people who listen.
And among His signs is that He shows you the lightning for fear and hope and He sends down water from the sky, then gives life through it to the earth after its death. Certainly there are signs in that for people who understand.
And among His signs is that the sky and the earth subsist by His command, then when He calls (with) a (single) call, at that time you will come out of the earth.
And His is whoever (whatever) is in the skies and the earth, all are obedient to Him.
And He it is Who begins the creation then gets it reproduced, and that is easiest for Him and His the Highest Similitude in the skies and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
He sets forth for you a similitude (selecting a situation) from among yourselves. Have you, among those whom your right hands possess (slaves), partners in the provision which We have given you, so you are all equal in it? (Do you) fear them as you fear (each other among) yourselves? Thus do explain Our signs in detail for a people who understand.
No, those who are unjust follow their own desires without knowledge. So who can guide him whom Allah leaves to go astray? And they have no helpers.
So set (right) your attention for (following) the upright religion which is the original creation of Allah on which He initially created mankind, there is no altering for the creation of Allah, that is established religion (law) but the majority of mankind does not know.
(Be of) those who turn to Him in repentance and fear Him and establish worship (salat) and do not of the polytheists,
of those who divided their religion and became sects, each party exulting in that which they have with them.
And when harm afflicts human beings, they pray to their Fosterer being those who turn to Him repentance, but when He (makes) them taste mercy from Him, then a party of them associates partners with their Fosterer,
so as to be ungrateful for that which We have given them, so enjoy yourselves, but you will come know.
Or have We sent down on them an authority so that it tells (them something) about that which they should associate as partners with Him?
And when We make human beings taste mercy, they rejoice in it, and if evil befalls them because that which their (own) hands have sent forth, then they are in despair.
Did they not see that Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills and straitens (it for whomever and whatever He wills)? Certainly there are signs in that for a people who believe.
So give to the relative his due and (also) to the needy and the wayfarer. That is best for those who intend (to seek) the Attention of Allah, and those are the persons who are successful.
And that which you give as usury that it may (cause an) increase in the wealth of mankind, it does increase with Allah; but that which you give as charity (zakat) intending (to seek) the Attention of Allah, then those are the persons who (get back) multiplied.
It is Allah Who created you then provided for you, then He causes you to die then He will bring to life. Is there anyone of your (presumed) partners (of Allah) who does any of those things? Glory be Him and the Exalted be He above that which they associate (with Him) as partners.
Corruption has appeared in the land and the sea because of that which the hands of human beings have earned, that He may make them taste (the result of) a part of that which they have done so that they may return (to the truth).
Say, “Travel in the earth and see how the end of those before (you) was (brought about), most them were polytheists.”
So set (right) your attention for the established religion, before the coming of the day form Allah from which there is no turning away, on that day they will be split (into groups).
Whoever rejects (the truth), then on him is (the responsibility of) his rejection, and whoever does righteous work, then they prepare a (good) habitation for themselves,
so that He rewards those who believe and do righteous works, from His grace. He certainly does like the infidels.
And among His signs is that He sends the winds as conveyers of good news and that He may make you taste of His mercy and that the ships might sail by His command and that you may seek of His grace and that you may be grateful (to Him).
And We did send messengers to their people before you, and they came to them with clear proofs, then We inflicted retribution on those who were criminals, and helping the believers is incumbent on Us.
It is Allah who sends the winds, so they raise the cloud, then He spreads it in the sky as He wills makes it (into) pieces, then you see the rain coming out from the spaces in between it, then when makes it to fall on whom he wills of His servants, then they rejoice,
though before it was sent down on them, (just) before it, they were in despair.
Then look at the signs of Allah’s mercy, how He gives life to the earth after its death? He is certainly the Giver of life to the dead and He has power over everything.
And if We send a wind and they see it yellow, (even) after that they will remain to be those who reject (the truth).
So you certainly cannot make the dead to hear nor can you make the deaf to hear the call when they turn back retreating.
And you cannot lead the blind away from their error, you can make none to hear except those who believe in Our signs, so they are the persons who submit (as Muslims).
It is Allah how created you (in a state) of weakness, then He gave strength after (the state weakness, then after (the state of) strength He gave weakness and gray hair. He creates what He wills and He is the Knowing, the Powerful.
And on the day the hour of doom will be established, the criminals will swear that they did not for more than an hour, thus they used to be turned away (from truth).
But those who are given knowledge and belief will say, “According to the record of Allah you indeed stayed till the day of resurrection, and this is the day of resurrection, but you, you did not (bother know.”
So on that day their excuses will not be of (any) benefit to those who were unjust and they will receive the good will (of Allah).
And We have indeed set forth in this Quran every (kind) of similitude for human beings, and if come to them with a sign, those who do not believe will definitely say, “You are nothing but those involved in falsehood.”
Thus does Allah set a seal on the hearts of those who do not know.
So be patient, the promise of Allah is certainly true, and do not let those who are not certain, hold in light estimation.
