Alif. Lam. Mim.
The Romans have been defeated
In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be victorious
Within ten years - Allah´s is the command in the former case and in the latter - and in that day believers will rejoice
In Allah´s help to victory. He helpeth to victory whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
It is a promise of Allah. Allah faileth not His promise, but most of mankind know not.
They know only some appearance of the life of the world, and are heedless of the Hereafter.
Have they not pondered upon themselves? Allah created not the heavens and the earth, and that which is between them, save with truth and for a destined end. But truly many of mankind are disbelievers in the meeting with their Lord.
Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them? They were stronger than these in power, and they dug the earth and built upon it more than these have built. Messengers of their own came unto them
Then evil was the consequence to those who dealt in evil, because they denied the revelations of Allah and made a mock of them.
Allah produceth creation, then He reproduceth it, then unto Him ye will be returned.
And in the day when the Hour riseth the unrighteous will despair.
There will be none to intercede for them of those whom they made equal with Allah. And they will reject their partners (whom they ascribed unto Him).
In the day when the Hour cometh, in that day they will be sundered.
As for those who believed and did good works, they will be made happy in a Garden.
But as for those who disbelieved and denied Our revelations, and denied the meeting of the Hereafter, such will be brought to doom.
So glory be to Allah when ye enter the night and when ye enter the morning -
Unto Him be praise in the heavens and the earth! - and at the sun´s decline and in the noonday.
He bringeth forth the living from the dead, and He bringeth forth the dead from the living, and He reviveth the earth after her death. And even so will ye be brought forth.
And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!
