Ar-Rum, Surah The Romans (Qur'an: Surat-30-Ar-Rum)
Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem
Alif, Lȃm, Mim.
The Romans have been defeated.
After being vanquished, they shall be victorious in a nearby place.
Within a few (three to nine) years. Allah’s is the Command before and after this. On that day the believers will rejoice.
With the Help of Allah, He helps whom He wills and He is the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful (the One Who manifests Himself with His Name of the Most Merciful).
(This is) the Promise of Allah! Allah does not fail in His Promise, but most of mankind do not know.
They know the outward of the life of the world, and they are heedless of the Hereafter.
Do they not reflect (reckon) in regards to their own souls? Allah created the heavens and the earth and what is between them two but with the truth and for an appointed term. And truly most of the people are deniers of the reaching with their Lord (they indeed disbelieve in having their spirits reach Allah while they are alive).
Do they not travel in the earth and see how the end of those before them was? They were stronger than those in prowess, and they had dug the earth and built upon it more than those have built. Their Messengers had come to them with the clear arguments. Allah was not wronging them, but they were wronging their own souls.
Then terrible was the end of those who did evil, because they denied (belied) the Verses of Allah and used to mock them.
Allah originates the creation, then brings it back (puts it back to its origin). Then to Him you shall be returned.
And on the (Dooms) Day when the Hour is established, the guilty shall be in despair.
And there will be no intercessors for them of those whom they have associated (with Allah) and they shall be deniers of their associates (on that day).
And on the Day when the Hour is established (the Doomsday), at that time of permission, they shall divide into groups.
But those who believe (who are Amenu, who wished to reach Allah while they were living) and did improving deeds (did the soul’s cleansing), they shall be delightful and happy in a Gardens (with blessings).
And as to those who disbelieved and belied (rejected) Our Verses and the meeting of the hereafter (denied having their spirits reach Allah while they are living), these shall be made to be ready in the Torment.
So glorify Allah in the evening and in the morning time.
And to Him belongs all praise in the heavens and the earth. At late noon and at midday (glorify Him)!
He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living. And gives life to the earth after its death, and thus shall you be brought forth (from the earth, just like that).
And from His Signs (miracles) that He created you from dust. Then when you become a (human) being, you scatter (on earth as you multiply).
And as of His Signs, He created mates for you from your souls that you may find rest in them. And He put between you love and mercy (compassion). Most surely there are Signs (proofs) in this for a people who reflect (reckon).
And it from His Signs that He had created the heavens and the earth and your tongues and colors are different. Most surely there are Signs (proofs) in this for the scholars.
And it from His Signs that you sleep at night and seek His Virtue by day. Most surely there are Signs (proofs) in this for a people who hear.
And it from His Signs that He shows you the lightning for fear and for hope. And sends down water from the sky, hence gives life therewith to the earth after its death. Most surely there are Signs (proofs) in this for a people who use their mind.
And it is from His Signs that the heaven and the earth stand (in balance) by His Command. Then when He calls you with a single call, you will come out from the earth (from your graves).
And His is whosoever is in the heavens and the earth. All are Qanitin (stand in admiration) to Him.
And He it is Who originates the creation, then causes it to return again (brings it back to its original form) and this very is easy for Him. His is the Attribute of Sublimity in the heavens and the earth, and He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise (the Owner of Wisdom and Judgment).
(Allah) set forth for you an example from your own souls. Have you among those whom your right hands possess (among your slaves) partners in what We have given you for sustenance (like this, those idols can be partners to Allah), so that with respect to it you are equal and you respect them as you respect each other? Thus do We explain the Verses in detail to a people who are mindful.
Nay! The tyrants followed their low desires without any knowledge. So who can guide those whom Allah leaves in Misguidance? And for such there are no helpers.
Then set yourself (your physical body) for the Religion as a Hanif, the nature made by Allah in which He has made all mankind. There is no altering in Allah’s creation that is the lasting Religion (that will last from the Pre-Eternity till the Post-Eternity), but most people do not know.
Turn to Him (wish to reach Allah while you are living) and become the owners of piety. And keep up the Prayer and (thus) be not of the associators (Al-Musriqun).
(Of those associators) who are divided in their Religion and became sects (fractions), every fraction rejoicing in what is with it.
And when a calamity touches mankind, they call upon their Lord, turning to Him. Then when He makes them taste Mercy from Him (when He causes them to reach Hidayet with His Name of the Most Merciful), some of them begin to associate (other things) with their Lord (they fall into Misguidance while they were in Hidayet).
Let them deny what We have given them, so enjoy yourselves (benefit themselves). They will soon come to know.
Or, have We sent down upon them an authority (a proof, a Book) so that it (the Book) speaks to them to associate with Him (Allah)?
And when We make people taste Mercy, they rejoice (they get spoiled) in it and if an evil befalls them for what their hands have sent forth, they are in despair!
Did they not see that Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills and restricts (it for whom He wills)? Most surely there are Signs in this for a people who believe.
Therefore give to the near of kin and to the needy and to the wayfarer their righteous due. This is better for those who yearn for Allah s Face (who wish to reach Allah) and these it is who reach Salvation.
And whatever you lay out as usury in order that it may increase on people’s property (Dhikr you do without wishing to reach Allah while you are living), it shall not increase in the Presence of Allah (it does not bring the glorious lights in to your souls hearts and does not increase them). Whatever you give in Zakat (Dhikir you do) seeking Allah’s Face (seeking to reach Allah), it is these that shall get manifold (increase the glorious lights in the souls’ hearts).
Allah is He Who created you, then gave you sustenance (He gave you sustenance in the world’s life and filled your souls’ hearts with glorious lights). Then He will cause you to die, then bring you to life. Is there any of your associates (idols) who does anything of it? Glory be to Him, and exalted be He above what they associate (with Him).
Mischief has appeared in the land and the sea because of what the hands of the mankind have earned, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, so that they may return (turn to Allah)
Say: “Travel in the earth and see what was the end of those before. Most of them were associators”.
So set your face (your physical body) for the everlasting Religion (that will continue from the Pre-Eternity till the Post-Eternity), before there comes a Day which Allah will not make him return on that Day (the Doomsday). They shall be separated in groups on the Day of Permission.
Whoever disbelieves, his disbelief is against him, and whoever does improving deeds (does the soul’s purification), they make so preparations for their own souls.
That He may reward those who believe (who are Amenu, who wish to reach Allah before death) and do improving deeds (purify their soul’s hearts) out of His Virtue. Surely He does not love the disbelievers.
And it is from His Signs that He sends forth the winds bearing good tidings, and He makes you taste of His Mercy, and makes the ships sail at His Command, and that you seek from His Grace, and that you may be grateful.
And certainly We sent before you Messengers to their nation, so they came to them with the clear arguments (proofs). Then We took vengeance on those who were guilty. Helping the believers has become a right (duty) on Us.
Allah is He Who sends forth the winds, so moves the clouds. Then He spreads it forth in the sky as He wills and He breaks it up then you see the rain coming forth from amongst them. Then when He causes it (the rain) to touch upon whom He wills of His servants, behold, they enjoy.
And they were before this, before it (rain) was sent down upon them, confounded in sure despair.
Look then at the arts of Allah s Mercy. How He gives life to the earth after its death? Most surely He is the One who raises the dead and He has Power over all things.
And if We send a wind and they see it (their crop) turn yellow, they would after that certainly continue to disbelieve.
So, surely, you cannot make the dead to hear, you cannot make the deaf to hear the invitation when they turn back and flee.
And you are not to make the blind reach Hidayet, saving them from their Misguidance. You make to hear only those who believe in Our Verses. They are the ones who are surrendered (they are Muslims).
Allah is He Who created you from a weak thing, then He gave you strength after weakness, then made you weak and old after strength. He creates what He wills, and He is the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful.
And on that Day when the Hour (the Doomsday) is established, the guilty swear (that) they did not stay but an hour. This is how they were reversed (from death to life).
And those who are given knowledge and Faith said: “You stayed (in the graves) till the Day of Resurrection (found) in the Book of Allah”. This is the Day of Resurrection, but you did not know.
Then on that Day (of Permission) their excuses shall not profit those who did wrong and they will not be asked to convince (Allah).
And certainly We have set forth for mankind every kind of examples in this Qur’an and if you should bring them a Verse (Sign), those who disbelieve certainly say: “You are only those who occupy themselves with falsehood”.
Thus does Allah set a lasting seal on the hearts of those who do not know.
Therefore remain patient, surely the Promise of Allah is true, and let not those who have no certainty (knowledge) drag you into flightiness.
