Surah Rum (30) 11/02/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 30 (Rum – the Romans)

Victory … is a matter of time

Verses 2-5 “The Roman Empire has been defeated,  in a land close by; but they, (even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious, within a few years.   … on that Day shall the Believers rejoice with the help of Allah. He helps whom He will, and He is exalted in might, most merciful”

The Believers were under tremendous pressure at the hands of the Polytheists.  When the Roman empire, being People of Scripture were defeated by the Persians, it dealt another blow to Religion in general.
These verses reassure the Believers that despite this setback, both the Romans and the Muslims will gain victory shortly.  This prophecy was indeed fulfilled in a few years following revelation of the verse.

What we learn from here is that Truth will eventually vanquish falsehood,
all that is required is that believers remain resilient.
