[30.1] Alif. Lam. Mim.
[30.2] The Romans have been defeated
[30.3] In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be
[30.4] Within ten years - Allah's is the command in the former
case and in the latter - and in that day believers will rejoice
[30.5] In Allah's help to victory. He helpeth to victory whom He
will. He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
[30.6] It is a promise of Allah. Allah faileth not His promise,
but most of mankind know not.
[30.7] They know only some appearance of the life of the world,
and are heedless of the Hereafter.
[30.8] 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.
[30.9] 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 with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty). Surely
Allah wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves.
[30.10] Then evil was the consequence to those who dealt in
evil, because they denied the revelations of Allah and made a
mock of them.
[30.11] Allah produceth creation, then He reproduceth it, then
unto Him ye will be returned.
[30.12] And in the day when the Hour riseth the unrighteous will
[30.13] 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).
[30.14] In the day when the Hour cometh, in that day they will
[30.15] As for those who believed and did good works, they will
be made happy in a Garden.
[30.16] But as for those who disbelieved and denied Our
revelations, and denied the meeting of the Hereafter, such will
be brought to doom.
[30.17] So glory be to Allah when ye enter the night and when ye
enter the morning -
[30.18] Unto Him be praise in the heavens and the earth! - and
at the sun's decline and in the noonday.
[30.19] 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.
[30.20] And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and
behold you human beings, ranging widely!
[30.21] And of His signs is this: He created for you helpmeets
from yourselves that ye might find rest in them, and He ordained
between you love and mercy. Lo! herein indeed are portents for
folk who reflect.
[30.22] And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the
earth, and the difference of your languages and colours. Lo!
herein indeed are portents for men of knowledge.
[30.23] And of His signs is your slumber by night and by day,
and your seeking of His bounty. Lo! herein indeed are portents
for folk who heed.
[30.24] And of His signs is this: He showeth you the lightning
for a fear and for a hope, and sendeth down water from the sky,
and thereby quickeneth the earth after her death. Lo! herein
indeed are portents for folk who understand.
[30.25] And of His signs is this: The heavens and the earth
stand fast by His command, and afterward, when He calleth you,
lo! from the earth ye will emerge.
[30.26] Unto Him belongeth whosoever is in the heavens and the
earth. All are obedient unto Him.
[30.27] He it is Who produceth creation, then reproduceth it,
and it is easier for Him. His is the Sublime Similitude in the
heavens and the earth. He is the Mighty, the Wise.
[30.28] He coineth for you a similitude of yourselves. Have ye,
from among those whom your right hands possess, partners in the
wealth We have bestowed upon you, equal with you in respect
thereof, so that ye fear them as ye fear each other (that ye
ascribe unto Us partners out of that which We created) ? Thus We
display the revelations for people who have sense.
[30.29] Nay, but those who do wrong follow their own lusts
without knowledge. Who is able to guide him whom Allah hath sent
astray ? For such there are no helpers.
[30.30] So set thy purpose (O Muhammad) for religion as a man by
nature upright - the nature (framed) of Allah, in which He hath
created man. There is no altering (the laws of) Allah's
creation. That is the right religion, but most men know not -
[30.31] Turning unto Him (only); and be careful of your duty
unto Him and establish worship, and be not of those who ascribe
partners (unto Him);
[30.32] Of those who split up their religion and became
schismatics, each sect exulting in its tenets.
[30.33] And when harm toucheth men they cry unto their Lord,
turning to Him in repentance; then, when they have tasted of His
mercy, behold! some of them attribute partners to their Lord
[30.34] So as to disbelieve in that which We have given them.
(Unto such it is said): Enjoy yourselves awhile, but ye will
come to know.
[30.35] Or have We revealed unto them any warrant which speaketh
of that which they associate with Him ?
[30.36] And when We cause mankind to taste of mercy they rejoice
therein; but if an evil thing befall them as the consequence of
their own deeds, lo! they are in despair!
[30.37] See they not that Allah enlargeth the provision for whom
He will, and straiteneth (it for whom He will). Lo! herein
indeed are portents for folk who believe.
[30.38] So give to the kinsman his due, and to the needy, and to
the wayfarer. That is best for those who seek Allah's
Countenance. And such are they who are successful.
[30.39] That which ye give in usury in order that it may
increase on (other) people's property hath no increase with
Allah; but that which ye give in charity, seeking Allah's
Countenance, hath increase manifold.
[30.40] Allah is He Who created you and then sustained you, then
causeth you to die, then giveth life to you again. Is there any
of your (so-called) partners (of Allah) that doeth aught of that
? Praised and Exalted be He above what they associate (with
[30.41] Corruption doth appear on land and sea because of (the
evil) which men's hands have done, that He may make them taste a
part of that which they have done, in order that they may
[30.42] Say (O Muhammad, to the disbelievers): Travel in the
land, and see the nature of the consequence for those who were
before you! Most of them were idolaters.
[30.43] So set thy purpose resolutely for the right religion,
before the inevitable day cometh from Allah. On that day mankind
will be sundered-
[30.44] Whoso disbelieveth must (then) bear the consequences of
his disbelief, while those who do right make provision for
[30.45] That He may reward out of His bounty those who believe
and do good works. Lo! He loveth not the disbelievers (in His
[30.46] And of His signs is this: He sendeth herald winds to
make you taste His mercy, and that the ships may sail at His
command, and that ye may seek his favour, and that haply ye may
[30.47] Verily We sent before thee (Muhammad) messengers to
their own folk. Then we took vengeance upon those who were
guilty (in regard to them). To help believers is ever incumbent
[30.48] Allah is He Who sendeth the winds so that they raise
clouds, and spreadeth them along the sky as pleaseth Him, and
causeth them to break and thou seest the rain downpouring from
within them. And when He maketh it to fall on whom He will of
His bondmen, lo! they rejoice;
[30.49] Though before that, even before it was sent down upon
them, they were in despair.
[30.50] Look, therefore, at the prints of Allah's mercy (in
creation): how He quickeneth the earth after her death. Lo! He
verily is the Quickener of the Dead, and He is Able to do all
[30.51] And if We sent a wind and they beheld it yellow, they
verily would still continue in their disbelief.
[30.52] For verily thou (Muhammad) canst not make the dead to
hear, nor canst thou make the deaf to hear the call when they
have turned to flee.
[30.53] Nor canst thou guide the blind out of their error. Thou
canst make none to hear save those who believe in Our
revelations so that they surrender (unto Him).
[30.54] Allah is He Who shaped you out of weakness, then
appointed after weakness strength, then, after strength,
appointed weakness and grey hair. He createth what He will. He
is the Knower, the Mighty.
[30.55] And on the day when the Hour riseth the guilty will vow
that they did tarry but an hour - thus were they ever deceived.
[30.56] But those to whom knowledge and faith are given will
say: The truth is, ye have tarried, by Allah's decree, until the
Day of Resurrection. This is the Day of Resurrection, but ye
used not to know.
[30.57] In that day their excuses will not profit those who did
injustice, nor will they be allowed to make amends.
[30.58] Verily We have coined for mankind in this Qur'an all
kinds of similitudes; and indeed if thou camest unto them with a
miracle, those who disbelieve would verily exclaim: Ye are but
[30.59] Thus doth Allah seal the hearts of those who know not.
[30.60] So have patience (O Muhammad)! Allah's promise is the
very truth, and let not those who have no certainty make thee
