غُلِبَتِ ٱلرُّومُ

2 The Romans have been victorious1

فِىٓ أَدْنَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَهُم مِّنۢ بَعْدِ غَلَبِهِمْ سَيَغْلِبُونَ

3 In the lowest1 earth; but they,2 after their defeat, will be victorious

فِى بِضْعِ سِنِينَ لِلَّـهِ ٱلْأَمْرُ مِن قَبْلُ وَمِنۢ بَعْدُ وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ

4 In a few1 years — to God belongs the command before and after — and, that day, the believers2 will exult

بِنَصْرِ ٱللَّـهِ يَنصُرُ مَن يَشَآءُ وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

5 At the help1 of God; He helps whom He wills; and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.

وَعْدَ ٱللَّـهِ لَا يُخْلِفُ ٱللَّـهُ وَعْدَهُۥ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

6 The promise of God!1 God fails not in His promise; but most men know not,

يَعْلَمُونَ ظَـٰهِرًا مِّنَ ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ عَنِ ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ هُمْ غَـٰفِلُونَ

7 They know an outward part of the life of this world, but of the Hereafter they are heedless.

أَوَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرُوا۟ فِىٓ أَنفُسِهِم مَّا خَلَقَ ٱللَّـهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ إِلَّا بِٱلْحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِ بِلِقَآئِ رَبِّهِمْ لَكَـٰفِرُونَ

8 Have they not reflected within themselves? God created the heavens and the earth and what is between them1 only in truth2 and for a stated term; and many among men are deniers of the meeting with their Lord.

أَوَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَيَنظُرُوا۟ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ كَانُوٓا۟ أَشَدَّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً وَأَثَارُوا۟ ٱلْأَرْضَ وَعَمَرُوهَآ أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا عَمَرُوهَا وَجَآءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُهُم بِٱلْبَيِّنَـٰتِ فَمَا كَانَ ٱللَّـهُ لِيَظْلِمَهُمْ وَلَـٰكِن كَانُوٓا۟ أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ

9 Have they not travelled in the earth and seen how was the final outcome of those who were before them? They were stronger than them in power, and they tilled the earth and inhabited1 it more than they have inhabited2 it; and their messengers came to them with clear signs; and God wronged3 them not, but they wronged4 their souls.5

ثُمَّ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَسَـٰٓـُٔوا۟ ٱلسُّوٓأَىٰٓ أَن كَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايَـٰتِ ٱللَّـهِ وَكَانُوا۟ بِهَا يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ

10 Then evil was the final outcome of those who did evil because they denied the proofs1 of God and mocked them.

ٱللَّـهُ يَبْدَؤُا۟ ٱلْخَلْقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُۥ ثُمَّ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ

11 God begins creation; then He repeats it; then to Him will you be returned.

وَيَوْمَ تَقُومُ ٱلسَّاعَةُ يُبْلِسُ ٱلْمُجْرِمُونَ

12 And the day the Hour strikes, the lawbreakers will despair,

وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُم مِّن شُرَكَآئِهِمْ شُفَعَـٰٓؤُا۟ وَكَانُوا۟ بِشُرَكَآئِهِمْ كَـٰفِرِينَ

13 And there will be no intercessors for them among their partners;1 and they will deny their partners.2

وَيَوْمَ تَقُومُ ٱلسَّاعَةُ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَفَرَّقُونَ

14 And the day the Hour strikes — that day will they be divided —

فَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ فَهُمْ فِى رَوْضَةٍ يُحْبَرُونَ

15 As for those who heed warning1 and do righteous deeds: they will be made glad in a lush meadow;

وَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ وَكَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا وَلِقَآئِ ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ فِى ٱلْعَذَابِ مُحْضَرُونَ

16 But as for those who ignore warning1 and deny Our proofs2 and the meeting of the Hereafter: those will be summoned to the punishment.

فَسُبْحَـٰنَ ٱللَّـهِ حِينَ تُمْسُونَ وَحِينَ تُصْبِحُونَ

17 So glory1 be to God when you reach the evening, and when you reach morning, —

وَلَهُ ٱلْحَمْدُ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَعَشِيًّا وَحِينَ تُظْهِرُونَ

18 And to Him belongs the praise in the heavens and the earth — and at night and when you reach midday!1

يُخْرِجُ ٱلْحَىَّ مِنَ ٱلْمَيِّتِ وَيُخْرِجُ ٱلْمَيِّتَ مِنَ ٱلْحَىِّ وَيُحْىِ ٱلْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَكَذَٰلِكَ تُخْرَجُونَ

19 He brings forth the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living, and He gives life to the earth after its death; and thus will you be brought forth.

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦٓ أَنْ خَلَقَكُم مِّن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ إِذَآ أَنتُم بَشَرٌ تَنتَشِرُونَ

20 And among His proofs1 is that He created you from dust; then are you mortals dispersing!

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦٓ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَٰجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوٓا۟ إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَـَٔايَـٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

21 And among His proofs1 is that He created for you spouses from yourselves that you might be reassured thereby,2 and made between you love and mercy; in that are proofs3 for people who reflect.

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ خَلْقُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَٱخْتِلَـٰفُ أَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَأَلْوَٰنِكُمْ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَـَٔايَـٰتٍ لِّلْعَـٰلِمِينَ

22 And among His proofs1 is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference in your tongues and your hues; in that are proofs2 for all mankind.3

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ مَنَامُكُم بِٱلَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ وَٱبْتِغَآؤُكُم مِّن فَضْلِهِۦٓ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَـَٔايَـٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَسْمَعُونَ

23 And among His proofs1 is your sleep by night and day, and your seeking of His bounty; in that are proofs2 for people who hear.

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ يُرِيكُمُ ٱلْبَرْقَ خَوْفًا وَطَمَعًا وَيُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَيُحْىِۦ بِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَآ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَـَٔايَـٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ

24 And among His proofs1 He shows you the lightning as fear and hope, and sends down water from the sky and gives thereby life to the earth after its death; in that are proofs2 for people who reason.

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦٓ أَن تَقُومَ ٱلسَّمَآءُ وَٱلْأَرْضُ بِأَمْرِهِۦ ثُمَّ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ دَعْوَةً مِّنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ إِذَآ أَنتُمْ تَخْرُجُونَ

25 And among His proofs1 is that the heaven and the earth stand by His command; then when He calls you with a call, from the earth will you then come forth!

وَلَهُۥ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ كُلٌّ لَّهُۥ قَـٰنِتُونَ

26 And to Him belongs whoso is in the heavens and the earth; all are to Him humbly obedient.

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى يَبْدَؤُا۟ ٱلْخَلْقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُۥ وَهُوَ أَهْوَنُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَهُ ٱلْمَثَلُ ٱلْأَعْلَىٰ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ

27 And He it is that begins creation; then He repeats it — and it is most easy for Him. And to Him belongs the highest likeness in the heavens and the earth; and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.1

ضَرَبَ لَكُم مَّثَلًا مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ هَل لَّكُم مِّن مَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـٰنُكُم مِّن شُرَكَآءَ فِى مَا رَزَقْنَـٰكُمْ فَأَنتُمْ فِيهِ سَوَآءٌ تَخَافُونَهُمْ كَخِيفَتِكُمْ أَنفُسَكُمْ كَذَٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ ٱلْـَٔايَـٰتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ

28 He strikes for you a similitude from yourselves: — have you from among those whom your right hands possess any partners1 in what We have provided for you, so that you are equal therein, you fearing them as you fear each other?2 Thus do We set out and detail3 the proofs4 for people who reason.

بَلِ ٱتَّبَعَ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓا۟ أَهْوَآءَهُم بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ فَمَن يَهْدِى مَنْ أَضَلَّ ٱللَّـهُ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن نَّـٰصِرِينَ

29 The truth is,1 those who do wrong follow their vain desires2 without knowledge; then who will guide him whom God has sent astray? And they have no helpers.

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا فِطْرَتَ ٱللَّـهِ ٱلَّتِى فَطَرَ ٱلنَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ ٱللَّـهِ ذَٰلِكَ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلْقَيِّمُ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

30 So set thou thy face1 towards the doctrine,2 inclining to truth:3 — the nature4 of God with which He created people — (there is no changing the creation of God) that is the right doctrine,5 (but most men know not)

مُنِيبِينَ إِلَيْهِ وَٱتَّقُوهُ وَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَلَا تَكُونُوا۟ مِنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ

31 Turning in repentance to Him. And be in prudent fear1 of Him, and uphold the duty;2 and be not of the idolaters:3

مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ فَرَّقُوا۟ دِينَهُمْ وَكَانُوا۟ شِيَعًا كُلُّ حِزْبٍۭ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ فَرِحُونَ

32 Of those who divide their doctrine1 and become sects, each party exulting at what it has.2

وَإِذَا مَسَّ ٱلنَّاسَ ضُرٌّ دَعَوْا۟ رَبَّهُم مُّنِيبِينَ إِلَيْهِ ثُمَّ إِذَآ أَذَاقَهُم مِّنْهُ رَحْمَةً إِذَا فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُم بِرَبِّهِمْ يُشْرِكُونَ

33 And when affliction touches men, they call to their Lord, turning in repentance to Him; then when He lets them taste mercy from Him, then a faction among them ascribes a partnership1 to their Lord,

لِيَكْفُرُوا۟ بِمَآ ءَاتَيْنَـٰهُمْ فَتَمَتَّعُوا۟ فَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ

34 That they might deny what We have given them. So enjoy yourselves; and you will come to know!

أَمْ أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ سُلْطَـٰنًا فَهُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِمَا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يُشْرِكُونَ

35 If1 We have sent down upon them an authority:2 then it speaks of that to which they ascribe a partnership[...].3

وَإِذَآ أَذَقْنَا ٱلنَّاسَ رَحْمَةً فَرِحُوا۟ بِهَا وَإِن تُصِبْهُمْ سَيِّئَةٌۢ بِمَا قَدَّمَتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ إِذَا هُمْ يَقْنَطُونَ

36 And when We let men taste mercy, they exult thereat; but if evil1 befalls them because of what their hands sent ahead, then they despair.

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّـهَ يَبْسُطُ ٱلرِّزْقَ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيَقْدِرُ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَـَٔايَـٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

37 Have they not considered1 that God expands provision for whom He wills, and He straitens? In that are proofs2 for people who believe.

فَـَٔاتِ ذَا ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ حَقَّهُۥ وَٱلْمِسْكِينَ وَٱبْنَ ٱلسَّبِيلِ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ ٱللَّـهِ وَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ

38 So give thou the relative his due,1 and the needy, and the wayfarer.2 That is best for those who desire the face of God; and it is they who are the successful.3

وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن رِّبًا لِّيَرْبُوَا۟ فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِ ٱلنَّاسِ فَلَا يَرْبُوا۟ عِندَ ٱللَّـهِ وَمَآ ءَاتَيْتُم مِّن زَكَوٰةٍ تُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ ٱللَّـهِ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُضْعِفُونَ

39 And what you give of usury that it might increase in the wealth of men, there is no increase with God; but what you give of purity,1 desiring the face of God: it is they2 who receive recompense manifold.

ٱللَّـهُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ رَزَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ هَلْ مِن شُرَكَآئِكُم مَّن يَفْعَلُ مِن ذَٰلِكُم مِّن شَىْءٍ سُبْحَـٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَـٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

40 God is He who created you; then He provided for you; then will He give you death; then will He give you life. Is there among your partners1 one who does anything of that? Glory2 be to Him! And exalted is He above that to which they ascribe a partnership!3

ظَهَرَ ٱلْفَسَادُ فِى ٱلْبَرِّ وَٱلْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِى ٱلنَّاسِ لِيُذِيقَهُم بَعْضَ ٱلَّذِى عَمِلُوا۟ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ

41 Corruption1 has appeared on land and sea for what the hands of men have earned, that He might let them taste some of what they have done, that they might return.

قُلْ سِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَٱنظُرُوا۟ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلُ كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّشْرِكِينَ

42 Say thou: “Travel in the earth and see how was the final outcome of those who were before; most of them were idolaters.”1

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ ٱلْقَيِّمِ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِىَ يَوْمٌ لَّا مَرَدَّ لَهُۥ مِنَ ٱللَّـهِ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَصَّدَّعُونَ

43 So set thou thy face1 towards the right doctrine2 before there comes a day — of which there is no repelling — from God; that day will they be separated.

مَن كَفَرَ فَعَلَيْهِ كُفْرُهُۥ وَمَنْ عَمِلَ صَـٰلِحًا فَلِأَنفُسِهِمْ يَمْهَدُونَ

44 Whoso denies, upon him is his denial; and whoso works righteousness, then are they preparing1 for themselves,2

لِيَجْزِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ مِن فَضْلِهِۦٓ إِنَّهُۥ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْكَـٰفِرِينَ

45 That He might reward those who heed warning1 and do righteous deeds of His bounty; He loves not the false claimers of guidance.2

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦٓ أَن يُرْسِلَ ٱلرِّيَاحَ مُبَشِّرَٰتٍ وَلِيُذِيقَكُم مِّن رَّحْمَتِهِۦ وَلِتَجْرِىَ ٱلْفُلْكُ بِأَمْرِهِۦ وَلِتَبْتَغُوا۟ مِن فَضْلِهِۦ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

46 And among His proofs1 is that He sends the winds as bearers of glad tidings, that2 He might let you taste of His mercy, and that the ships3 might run by His command, and that you might seek of His bounty, and that you might be grateful.

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ رُسُلًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِمْ فَجَآءُوهُم بِٱلْبَيِّنَـٰتِ فَٱنتَقَمْنَا مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَجْرَمُوا۟ وَكَانَ حَقًّا عَلَيْنَا نَصْرُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

47 (And We sent before thee messengers to their people, and they brought them clear signs; then We took vengeance on those who were lawbreakers; and it was binding upon1 Us to help the believers.2)

ٱللَّـهُ ٱلَّذِى يُرْسِلُ ٱلرِّيَـٰحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابًا فَيَبْسُطُهُۥ فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ كَيْفَ يَشَآءُ وَيَجْعَلُهُۥ كِسَفًا فَتَرَى ٱلْوَدْقَ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ خِلَـٰلِهِۦ فَإِذَآ أَصَابَ بِهِۦ مَن يَشَآءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِۦٓ إِذَا هُمْ يَسْتَبْشِرُونَ

48 God is He who sends the winds, that they stir up a cloud, and He spreads it in the sky as He wills; and He makes it pieces and thou seest the rain come forth from the midst of it; then when He makes it fall on whom He wills of His servants they rejoice

وَإِن كَانُوا۟ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يُنَزَّلَ عَلَيْهِم مِّن قَبْلِهِۦ لَمُبْلِسِينَ

49 Though they were, before it was sent down upon them — before that — in despair!
