The Romans have been defeated.
In the nearside land, and they will after their defeat be victorious.
In a few years. To Allah belongs the matter before and after, and on that day the believers will rejoice.
In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He pleases and He is mighty and merciful.
A promise from Allah. Allah does not break His promise, but most people don´t know.
They know the apparent of the life of this world and are careless of the hereafter.
Do they not reflect about themselves? Allah did not create what is in the heavens and on earth and what is between them except with truth and for a fixed term, but many people reject the meeting with their Lord.
Do they not travel on earth and see what the outcome of those before them was? They were stronger than them in power and made their mark on the earth and cultivated it more than these cultivated it, and their messengers came to them with clear proofs, so Allah did not wrong them but they wronged themselves.
Then the outcome of those who did bad was bad for that they denied the signs of Allah and made fun of them.
Allah initiates the creation, then repeats it, then you will return to Him.
And on the day the hour happens, the sinful will despair.
And they will have no mediator from their associates and will reject their associates.
And on the day the hour happens, on that day they will be separated.
As for those who believed and did good work, they will be settled happily in the garden.
And as for those who rejected (the truth) and denied Our signs and the meeting of the hereafter, those will be presented for punishment.
So glorified is Allah when you enter the night and when you get up in the morning.
And He is praised in the heavens and on earth and in the afternoon and when you reach mid-day.
He brings out the living from the dead and brings out the dead from the living and revives the earth after its death, and likewise you will be brought out.
And of His signs is that He created you from soil, then you spread out as humans.
And of His signs is that he created for you partners from amongst yourselves to find rest in them, and He placed love and mercy between you, for in that are signs for people who reflect.
And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the difference in your languages and colours, for in that are signs to those who know.
And of His signs is your sleep at night and in the day and that you seek of His favours, for in that are signs for people who listen.
And of His signs He shows you the lightning in fear and hope and sends down from the sky water, then revives with it the earth after its death, for in that are signs for people who understand.
And of His signs is that the sky and the earth function by His command, then when He calls you with a call from the earth, you will be brought out.
And to Him belongs what is in the heavens and on earth, everything is submissive to Him.
And He is who initiates the creation, then repeats it, and this is most easy for Him, and His are the most exalted attributes in the heavens and on earth and He is the mighty and wise.
Allah coins a likeness for you of yourselves: do those in your possession share what We have provided you with to the extent that you are equal in it and you fear them as you fear each other? This is how Allah explains the signs for people who understand.
But the wrongdoers follow their own desires without knowledge, so who will guide whom Allah lets go astray? And they have no helpers.
So turn your face to this religion sincerely devoted; the natural disposition upon which Allah created people. There is no changing the creation of Allah. That is the upright religion, but most people do not know.
Repent to Him and beware of Him and keep up prayer and do not be of the idolaters.
Of those who divide their religion and are factions, each party rejoicing in what they have.
And when harm befalls people, they call their Lord, repenting to Him, then when He lets them taste mercy from Him, a group of them associate (others) with Allah.
So that they reject that which We gave them, then enjoy it for a while, you will soon know.
Or did We send an authority to them, someone who tells them of that which they associate?
And when We let people taste mercy, they rejoice in it, and when something bad afflicts them on account of what they have sent ahead, they are depressed.
Do they not see that Allah expands the provision for whom He pleases and tightens it, for in that are signs for people who believe.
So give the relatives their due and the poor and the traveller, that is better for those who want to please Allah, and those are the successful.
And whatever you give in interest to increase the wealth of people, it does not increase with Allah, and whatever you give in Zakat, seeking to please Allah, those are the ones who achieve growth.
Allah is who created you, then provided for you, then lets you die, then revives you. Is there any of your associates who does anything of that? Glorified and exalted is He above what they associate.
Corruption is becoming apparent on land and on sea on account of what people have brought about, so that He makes them taste some of what they have done so that they return.
Say: travel on earth and see what the outcome was like for those before, most of them were idolaters.
So turn your face to the upright religion before a day comes when there is no turning back from Allah. On that day they will be parted.
Who rejected (the truth), his rejection is upon him, and who did good, they paved the way for themselves.
So that Allah rewards those who believe and do good work from His favours, for He does not love those who reject (the truth).
And of His signs is that He sends the winds as bringers of good news and to let you taste of His mercy and for the ship to sail by His command and for you to seek of His blessings and so that you would be grateful.
And We sent messengers before you to their people and they brought them clear proofs, then We took revenge on those who sinned, and it is a duty upon Us to help the believers.
Allah is who sends the winds, then they promote the clouds, then He spreads them in the sky as He pleases, and He darkens them and you see precipitation emerge from within, then when He afflicts with it whom He pleases of His servants, they rejoice.
When before it was sent down on them they were in despair.
So look at the effects of the mercy of Allah, how He revives the earth after its death, for likewise the dead will be revived, and He is able to do anything.
And if We send a wind and they see it turn yellow, they will still reject (the truth) after that.
For you cannot make the dead hear and cannot make the deaf hear when they turn away.
And you will not guide the blind away from their error. You can only make those hear who believe in Our signs and submit (as Muslims).
Allah is who created you weak, then gave strength after weakness, then gave weakness and grey hair after strength, and He creates what He pleases and He is the knowing and powerful.
And on the day the hour happens, the sinful will swear that they did not stay longer than an hour, this is how they were diverted.
And those who were given knowledge and belief will say: you stayed in accordance with the decree of Allah until the day of resurrection, so this is the day of resurrection, but you did not know.
So on that day their excuses do not benefit the wrongdoers nor will they be allowed redress.
And We have coined in this Qur´an all kinds of likenesses for people, and if you were to bring them a sign, those who reject (the truth) would say: you are only making it up.
This is how Allah imprints on the hearts of those who do not know.
So have patience, for the promise of Allah is true, and let not those who are unsure distract you.
