The Romans have been defeated
In a near land, and they, after their defeat, will be victorious
Within a few years. Unto Allâh belongs the command before and after. And on that day those who live by Faith will rejoice
In the triumph (given to them) by Allâh. He gives victory to whom He wills. He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful.
It is a Promise of Allâh. And Allâh is not slow to fulfill his promise, but most people don’t have enough knowledge (of Him).
They (only) know outward manifestation of this worldly life, whereas of the Hereafter they are entirely heedless.
Have they not contemplated themselves? Allâh didn’t create the heavens and earth, and all that which is between them, except for a genuine reason and an appointed term. Yet most people are in persistent and purposeful denial of meeting with their Lord.
Have they not travelled through the land and seen what was the (dreadful) end of those before them? They were more powerful than them -.(the Quraysh Tribe of Mecca). They tilled the land and built on it more than what they- (the Quraysh Tribe of Mecca) - have built on it. Their Messengers came to them with irrefutable Signs. So it was not Allâh Who wronged them, but they used to be unfair to their own selves (when they have voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims).
Then, dreadful was the end of those who did evil, because they persistently refused to acknowledge what We revealed of the Knowledge of the Truth and used to mock at them.
Allâh originates the creation, then repeats it, then to Him you shall be returned.
On the day when the Hour comes to pass, the Ungodly Sinners will be in despair.
They will have no intercessors from among those whom they associate with Allâh. And they will disavow those whom they associate with Allâh.
And on the day when the Hour comes to pass, they will be separated.
Then as for those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts, they will be in a Garden filled with joy and happiness.
But as for those who live in spiritual darkness, persistently refuse to acknowledge what We have revealed of the Knowledge of the Truth and doubt the meeting of the Hereafter, they will be brought to doom.
Now, therefore, glorify and venerate Allâh in the evening and in the morning.
And unto Him belongs all praise in the heavens and earth, in the evenings and noonday.
He brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living. He revives the earth after its death. This is how you will be resurrected.
And Of His Signs is that He created you from dust, then you became human beings scattered through out (the earth).
And of His Signs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves so that you may find comfort in them. And He has placed between you intimacy and compassion. Surely, in that there are Signs for a people who persist in meditation.
And of His Sings is the creation of the heavens and the earth, as well as the diversity of your tongues and colors. Verily, in that there are Signs for a people who have the gift of spiritual wisdom and knowledge.
And of His Signs is your sleep by night and day, and your seeking after His bounty. Verily, in that there are Signs for a people who hearken.
And of His Signs is that He shows you the lightning for fear and hope, and sends down water from the cloud, and with it He revives the earth after its death. Verily, in that there are Signs for a people who have a higher level of consciousness.
And of His Signs is that the heavens and the earth will stand fast by His Command. Then when He calls you with a (single) call to come forth from the earth, you will immediately come forth.
Unto Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and on the earth: All are obedient to His will.
He is the One Who originates the creation, then repeats it. This is easier for Him. His is the Most Exalted Similitude in the heavens and on the earth. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise.
He sets forth to you a similitude relating to yourselves. Do you have among those whom your right hands possess partners in that which We have bestowed on you, who share it equally with you? Do you fear them as you fear each other? This is how We distinctly explain the Revelations for a people who possess a higher level of consciousness.
In fact, those iniquitous people have yielded to their own whims without knowledge. And who can guide the one whom Allâh has allowed to go astray. There shall be none to help them.
Now, therefore, set your face steadily and truly towards the system of faith and worship as a monotheist- having a deep, pure, focused Faith in Allâh- (since it is consistent with) the true nature which Allâh has created in the people. The creation of Allâh cannot be altered. This is the upright faith, but most of the people do not know.
Turn in repentance to Him. Act piously toward Him. Establish the regular Prayer. Don’t be one of the Polytheists,
(Or) of those who divided their faith and split into sects - each party rejoicing in what they have.
And When adversity touches the people, they implore their Lord, turning in repentance to Him. Then when He gives them a taste of His Mercy, at once some of them begin to attribute partners to their Lord
Because of their ingratitude for that which We have granted them. So enjoy yourselves for a while. Soon you will face (the dire consequences of your iniquitous deeds).
Or have We sent down authority to them, which speaks of that which they associate with Him?
And whenever We let the people taste a Mercy, they rejoice in it. But if an evil thing befell them because of what their hands have sent forth, they would fall into despair.
Do they not see that Allâh spreads out and straitens sustenance to whom He wills? Verily, there are Signs in this for a people who live a life of Genuine Faith.
Now, therefore, give to the near of kin his due, as well as to the needy and the hopeless traveller. That is best for those who seek the Countenance of Allâh. Those are the ones who will ultimately achieve salvation.
That which you give in usury so as to increase within the wealth of people won’t increase with Allâh. But whatever you give in alms and seeking the countenance of Allâh, will increase. Those are the ones who will get a recompense multiplied.
Allâh is the (only) One Who created you, then gave you sustenance, then causes you to die, then gives life to you again. Is there anyone of your (so-called) partners (of Allâh) that can do any of these things? Exalted is He and High above of what they associate with Him.
Lo! Corruption has appeared throughout the land and sea due to what the hands of people have earned so that Allâh will make them taste part of what they have done and give them a chance to quit their perversion and return to the truth.
Say, "Travel throughout the land and see what was the end of those who were before you. Most of them were Polytheists.”
Now, therefore, set your face steadily and truly towards the upright faith before there comes to you from Allâh a day which cannot be averted. On that day they will be divided.
Whoever voluntarily and consciously denies the truth will bear the dire consequences of his denial, whereas those who strive to do righteous (acts) are paving a way to (salvation) for their own selves:
So that He will reward those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts from His Bounty. For He doesn't demonstrates His own love for those who are spiritually dead and blind.
And of His Signs is that He sends forth the winds as glad tidings so that He may let you taste of His Mercy, and that the ships may run by His command, and that you may strive to obtain of His bounty, and that you may show gratitude.
Verily, We sent before you Messengers to their own people. They came to them with irrefutable Signs. Then We inflicted punishment upon those who continued to indulge in iniquitous deeds. It is incumbent on Us to grant victory to the those who live a life of Genuine Faith.
It It is Allâh Who unleashes the winds that stir up the clouds. He spreads them along the sky as He wills, and causes them to break into fragments; and then you behold the rain coming forth from within them. Then when He causes it to fall on whom of His servants as He wills, they regard it as a promising sign
Although before that, even before it was sent down upon them, they were in despair.
Look then at the (positive) effects of the Mercy of Allâh: how He gives life to the earth after its death. Indeed, He is the One Who gives life to the dead. And He is the One Who is Most Capable of doing whatsoever He desires.
If it happens that We send a (strong) wind and they see (their plant leaves turn) yellow they will after that obviously continue to live in spiritual darkness.
So you can’t make the dead hear, nor can you make the deaf hear the call when they go back, retreating,
Nor can you lead the (spiritually) blind out of their self-deception. You can’t make none hear except those who have absolute Faith in Our Revelation, submitting (themselves entirely to Allâh).
Allâh is the (only) One Who created you from a state of weakness, then gave you strength after weakness, then gave you weakness and gray hair after strength. He creates whatsoever He wills. And He is the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful.
And on the day when the Hour comes to pass, the Ungodly Sinners will swear that they had not stayed more than an hour. This is how they were deceived into going away (from the Faith).
But those to whom the spiritual gift of knowledge and Faith are given will say: "Indeed, you have stayed according to the ordinance of Allâh until the Day of Resurrection. So this is the Day of Resurrection- yet you were not aware.”
So, on that day, the excuses of those who voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims won’t benefit them, neither will they be allowed to make amends.
And verily, We coined for mankind in this Qur’ān every kind of similitude. If it should happen that you brought to them a Sign, those who live in spiritual darkness would surely say: "You (and your Companions) are no more than followers of falsehood.”
This is how Allâh sealed the hearts of those who do lack the knowledge.
So cling to patience! The promise of Allâh is absolutely true. Don’t let those who harbour doubts (about the Day of Judgment) influence you to lose your patience.
