A.L. Bilal Muhammad et al (2018) rendition of Surah The Romans, The Byzantines(ar-Rum)
30:1 Alif, Laam, Miim.
30:2 The Roman Empire has been defeated-
30:3 In a land close by. But they, even after this defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious-
30:4 Within a few years. With God is the decision, in the past and in the future. On that day will the believers rejoice-
30:5 With the help of God. He helps whom He wills, and He is Exalted in Might, the Merciful Redeemer.
30:6 It is the promise of God. Never does God depart from His promise, but most people do not understand.
30:7 They know only the outer things in the life of the present, but of the end of things they are ignorant.
30:8 Do they not reflect in their own minds? God has not created the heavens and the earth, and all between them, except for just ends, and for a term appointed. Yet there are truly many among people who deny the meeting with their Lord.
30:9 Do they not travel through the earth, and see what the end of those before them was? They were superior to them in strength. They tilled the soil and populated it in greater numbers than these have. There came to them their messengers with guidance which they rejected to their own peril. It was not God Who wronged them, but they wronged their own souls.
30:10 In the end, for those who did harm, is harm, because they rejected the signs of God, and made mockery of them.
30:11 It is God Who begins the process of creation then repeats it, then you will be brought back to Him.
30:12 On the day that the Hour will be established, the guilty will be in despair.
30:13 No intercessor will they have among their partners, and they will themselves reject their partners.
30:14 On the day the hour will be established, that day all people will be sorted out.
30:15 Then those who have believed and did righteous deeds will be happy in a meadow of pleasure.
30:16 And those who have rejected faith and falsely denied our signs and the meeting of the hereafter, they will be brought forth to punishment.
30:17 So glory be to God, when you reach evening, and when you rise in the morning,
30:18 Yes, to Him belongs the praise, in the heavens and on earth, and in the afternoon, and at night.
30:19 It is He Who brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living, and Who gives life to the earth after it is dead, and you will be brought out from the dead.
30:20 Among His signs is this, that He created you from dust, and then behold, you are human beings scattered far and wide.
30:21 And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may live in tranquility with them, and He has put affection and mercy between your hearts, indeed in that are signs for those who reflect.
30:22 And among His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colors, indeed in that are signs for those who know.
30:23 And among His signs is the sleep that you take by night and by day, and the quest that you make for livelihood out of His bounty, indeed in those are signs for those who listen.
30:24 And among His signs is that He shows you the lightning, both by way of fear and of hope, and He sends down rain from the sky, and with it gives life to the earth after it is dead, indeed in that are signs for those who are wise.
30:25 And among His signs is this, that heaven and earth stand by His command. Then when He calls you by a single call from the earth, behold, you come forth immediately.
30:26 To Him belongs every being that is in the heavens and on earth. All are devoutly obedient to Him.
30:27 It is He Who begins the process of creation, and then repeats it, and for Him it is most easy. To Him belong the loftiest descriptions in the heavens and the earth, for He is Exalted in Might, Full of Wisdom.
30:28 He gives to you a similitude from your own experience. Do you have partners among those whom your right hands possess, to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you? Do you fear them as you fear each other? This is how we explain the signs in detail to a people who understand.
30:29 No, the wrongdoers merely follow their own lusts, being devoid of knowledge, but who will guide those whom God leaves astray? To them there will be no helpers.
30:30 So set your face steadily and truly to the upright, natural way. Establish what God has made according to the pattern on which He has made humanity. Let there be no change in that work done by God. That is the standard religion, but most among humanity do not understand.
30:31 Turn back in repentance to Him, and be conscious of Him. Establish prayer, and be not among those who join gods with God,
30:32 Or those who split up their religion, and become sects, each group rejoicing in that which they have.
30:33 When trouble touches people, they cry to their Lord, turning back to Him in repentance, but when He gives them a taste of mercy from Himself behold, some of them pay part-worship to other god’s besides their Lord,
30:34 As if to show their ingratitude for the favors We have bestowed on them. Then enjoy your brief day, but soon will you know your foolishness.
30:35 Or have We sent down authority to them that points out to them the things to which they pay part-worship?
30:36 When We give people a taste of mercy, they exult at it, and when some harm afflicts them because of what their own hands have sent forth behold, they are in despair.
30:37 Do they not see that God enlarges provision and restricts it for whomever He pleases? Indeed in that are signs for those who believe.
30:38 So give what is due to family, the needy, and to displaced persons. That is best for those who seek the Countenance of God, and it is these who will flourish.
30:39 That which you lay out for increase through the property of other people, will have no increase with God, but that which you lay out for charity, seeking the Countenance of God will increase. It is these who will get a reward multiplied.
30:40 It is God Who has created you. Further, He has provided for your sustenance, then He will cause you to die, and again He will give you life. Are there any of your partners that can do any one of these things? Glory be to Him and high is He above the partners they attribute to Him.
30:41 Corruption has appeared on land and sea because of that which the hands of humanity have earned, that God may give them a taste of some of their deeds, in order that they may turn back from evil.
30:42 Say, “Travel through the earth and see what was the end of those before you. Most of them worshipped others besides God.”
30:43 But set your face to the upright way of life, before there comes from God the day that there is no chance of averting. On that day humanity will be divided in two.
30:44 Those who do not believe will suffer from that rejection, and those who work righteousness, they are preparing,
30:45 So that He may reward those who believe and work righteous deeds out of His bounty, but He does not love those who do not believe.
30:46 Among His signs is this, that He sends the winds as heralds of hope, giving you a taste of His grace and mercy, that the ships may sail majestically by His command, and that you may seek of His bounty, in order that you may be grateful.
30:47 We did indeed send before you, messengers to their respective peoples, and they came to them with clear signs. Then, to those who transgressed, We paid out retribution, and it was due from Us to aid those who believed.
30:48 It is God Who sends the winds, and they raise the clouds. Then He spreads them in the sky as He wills, and breaks them into fragments, until you see raindrops issue from the middle of it. Then when He has made them reach those of His servants that He wills behold, they rejoice,
30:49 Even though before they received the rain, just before this, they were in despair.
30:50 Then contemplate the memorials of God's mercy, how He gives life to the earth after its death, indeed the same One will give life to the human beings that are dead, for He has power over all things.
30:51 And if We send a wind from which they see their land turn yellow behold, they become thereafter, ungrateful.
30:52 So indeed you cannot make the dead to hear, nor can you make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs and turn away.
30:53 Nor can you lead back the blind from their straying. Only those will you make to hear are those who believe in Our signs and submit.
30:54 It is God Who created you in a state of fragility, then gave you strength after vulnerability, then after strength gave you frailty and a grey head. He creates as He wills, and it is He Who has all knowledge and power.
30:55 On the day that the Hour of reckoning will be established, the transgressors will swear that they stayed only an hour. So were they used to being deluded.
30:56 But those endued with knowledge and faith will say, “Indeed you did stay, within God's decree, until the Day of Resurrection, and this is the Day of Resurrection, but you, you were not aware.”
30:57 So on that day no excuse of theirs will avail the transgressors, nor will they be invited then to seek grace by repentance.
30:58 Indeed We have given to humanity in this Quran, every kind of parable, but if you bring to them any sign, the unbelievers are sure to say, “You do nothing but speak lies.”
30:59 Thus God places a seal upon the hearts of those who do not know.
30:60 So patiently persevere, for indeed the promise of God is true, nor let those shake your firmness, who have themselves no certainty of faith.
