The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Romans, The Byzantines(ar-Rum)
30:1 Alif. Lam. Mim.
30:2 The Byzantines have been defeated
30:3 in a land nearby. Yet after being defeated they will prevail
30:4 within a few years—unto God belongs the affair, before and after, and on that day the believers shall rejoice
30:5 in God’s Help. He helps whomsoever He will, and He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
30:6 [This is] God’s Promise—God fails not His Promise, but most of mankind know not.
30:7 They know some outward aspect of the life of this world, but of the Hereafter they are heedless.
30:8 Do they not reflect upon their souls? God did not create the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them, save in truth and for a term appointed. Yet truly many among mankind believe not in the meeting with their Lord.
30:9 Have they not journeyed upon the earth and observed how those before them fared in the end? They were greater than them in strength. They tilled the earth and built upon it more than have they, and their messengers brought them clear proofs. For God would never wrong them, but themselves did they wrong.
30:10 Then the end of those who committed evil deeds was most evil, for they denied God’s signs and mocked them.
30:11 God originates creation, then brings it back; then unto Him shall you be returned.
30:12 And on the Day when the Hour is come, the guilty shall despair.
30:13 They have no intercessors from among those they ascribed as partners, and they will then disbelieve in those they ascribed as partners.
30:14 And on the Day when the Hour is come, that Day they will be separated.
30:15 As for those who believe and perform righteous deeds, they will be made joyous in a Garden.
30:16 But as for those who disbelieved and denied Our signs and the meeting of the Hereafter, they will be arraigned unto the punishment.
30:17 So glory be to God when you enter upon the eve and when you rise at morn;
30:18 His is the praise in the heavens and on the earth—when the sun declines and when you reach noontide.
30:19 He brings forth the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living, and He revives the earth after its death. Even so shall you be brought forth.
30:20 Among His signs is that He created you from dust. Then, behold, you are human beings ranging far and wide.
30:21 And among His signs is that He created mates for you from among yourselves, that you might find rest in them, and He established affection and mercy between you. Truly in that are signs for a people who reflect.
30:22 And among His signs are the creation of the heavens and the earth and the variation in your tongues and colors. Truly in that are signs for those who know.
30:23 And among His signs is your sleep by night and day and your seeking His Bounty. Truly in that are signs for a people who hear.
30:24 And among His signs is that He shows you lightning, arousing fear and hope, and that He sends down water from the sky, then revives thereby the earth after its death. Truly in that are signs for a people who understand.
30:25 And among His signs is that the sky and the earth stand fast by His Command. Then, when He calls you forth from the earth with a single call, behold, you will come forth.
30:26 Unto Him belongs whosoever is in the heavens and on the earth; all are devoutly obedient unto Him.
30:27 He it is Who originates creation, then brings it back, and that is most easy for Him. Unto Him belongs the loftiest description in the heavens and on the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
30:28 He sets forth for you a parable from yourselves: have you, among those whom your right hands possess, partners in what We have provided for you, such that you are equal with respect to it, with you fearing them as you fear each other? Thus do We expound the signs for a people who understand.
30:29 Nay, those who do wrong follow their caprices without knowledge. So who will guide those whom God has led astray? And they shall have no helpers.
30:30 Set thy face to religion as a ?anif, in the primordial nature from God upon which He originated mankind—there is no altering the creation of God; that is the upright religion, but most of mankind know not—
30:31 turning unto Him. And reverence Him and perform the prayer; and be not among the idolaters,
30:32 among those who have divided their religion and become factions, each party rejoicing in that which it has.
30:33 And when harm befalls the people, they call upon their Lord, turning to Him in repentance. Then, when He lets them taste of His Mercy, behold, a group among them ascribe partners unto their Lord.
30:34 Let them be ungrateful for that which We have given them: “So enjoy yourselves! For soon you will know.”
30:35 Or have We sent down upon them any authority that speaks of that which they ascribe as partners unto Him?
30:36 And when We cause the people to taste some mercy, they rejoice in it. But should an evil befall them because of that which their hands have sent forth, behold, they despair.
30:37 Have they not considered that God outspreads and straitens provision for whomsoever He will? Truly in that are signs for a people who believe.
30:38 So give unto the kinsman his right, and unto the indigent and the traveler. That is better for those who desire the Face of God. It is they who shall prosper.
30:39 That which you give in usury that it might increase through other people’s wealth does not increase with God. But that which you give in alms, desiring the Face of God—it is they who receive a manifold increase.
30:40 God it is Who created you, then nourished you; then He causes you to die; then He gives you life. Is there anyone among those you ascribe as partners who does aught of that? Glory be to Him and exalted is He above the partners they ascribe.
30:41 Corruption has appeared on land and sea because of that which men’s hands have earned, that He may let them taste some of that which they have done, that haply they might return.
30:42 Say, “Journey upon the earth and observe how those before fared in the end, most of whom were idolaters.”
30:43 And set thy face to the upright religion before there comes a day from God that none can repel. That Day they will be spread asunder.
30:44 Whosoever disbelieves, his disbelief is to his own detriment. And whosoever works righteousness, they make provision for their souls,
30:45 that from His Bounty He may recompense those who believe and perform righteous deeds. Truly He loves not the disbelievers.
30:46 And among His signs is that He sends the winds as bearers of glad tidings to let you taste of His Mercy, that the ships may sail by His Command, and that you may seek of His Bounty, and that haply you may give thanks.
30:47 We have indeed sent messengers unto their people before thee, and they brought them clear proofs. Then We took vengeance upon those who were guilty; and it is incumbent upon Us to help the believers.
30:48 God is He Who sends the winds, then they cause clouds to rise, and He spreads them in the sky as He will and makes them into fragments, whereupon you see the rain emerging from their midst. Then when He bestows it upon whomsoever He will among His servants, behold, they rejoice,
30:49 though previously, before it was sent down upon them, they had been in despair.
30:50 So observe the vestiges of God’s Mercy, how He revives the earth after its death. Truly that is the Reviver of the dead, and He is Powerful over all things.
30:51 And were We to send a wind and they were to see it turn yellow, after that they would surely disbelieve.
30:52 Surely thou dost not make the dead to hear; nor dost thou make the deaf to hear the call when they turn their backs;
30:53 nor dost thou guide the blind from their straying. Thou makest none to hear, save those who believe in Our signs and are submitters.
30:54 God is He Who created you from weakness, then ordained strength after weakness, then ordained weakness and old age after strength. He creates whatsoever He will, and He is the Knowing, the Powerful.
30:55 And on the Day when the Hour is come, the guilty will swear that they had tarried naught but an hour; thus were they perverted.
30:56 And those who have been given knowledge and belief will say, “Indeed, you tarried in God’s Book until the Day of Resurrection; and this is the Day of Resurrection! But you knew not.”
30:57 On that Day the excuses of those who do wrong will benefit them not; nor can they make amends.
30:58 And indeed We have set forth for mankind in this Quran every kind of parable. And if thou bringest them a sign, those who disbelieve will surely say, “You make naught but false claims.”
30:59 Thus does God seal the hearts of those who know not.
30:60 So be patient. God’s Promise is indeed true. And let not those without certainty disquiet thee.
