The Romans have been defeated

in a nearby land. Yet following their defeat, they will triumph

            

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

within three to nine years. The ˹whole˺ matter rests with Allah before and after ˹victory˺. And on that day the believers will rejoice

        

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

at the victory willed by Allah. He gives victory to whoever He wills. For He is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

˹This is˺ the promise of Allah. ˹And˺ Allah never fails in His promise. But most people do not know.

          

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

They ˹only˺ know the worldly affairs of this life, but are ˹totally˺ oblivious to the Hereafter.

                    ﭿ  

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Have they not reflected upon their own being? Allah only created the heavens and the earth and everything in between for a purpose and an appointed term. Yet most people are truly in denial of the meeting with their Lord!

                                

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Have they not travelled throughout the land to see what was the end of those ˹destroyed˺ before them? They were far superior in might; they cultivated the land and developed it more than these ˹Meccans˺ ever have. Their messengers came to them with clear proofs. Allah would have never wronged them, but it was they who wronged themselves.

             

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Then most evil was the end of the evildoers for denying and mocking the signs of Allah.
