The Byzantines have been defeated
Feee adnal ardi wa hummim ba'di ghalabihim sa ya ghliboon
In the nearest land. But they, after their defeat, will overcome
Fee bid'i sineen; lillaahil amru min qablu wa mim ba'd; wa yawma'iziny yafrahul mu'minoon
Within three to nine years. To Allah belongs the command [i.e., decree] before and after. And that day the believers will rejoice
Binasril laa; yansuru mai yashaaa'u wa Huwal 'Azeezur Raheem
In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
Wa'dal laahi laa yukhliful laahu wa'dahoo wa laakin na aksaran naasi laa ya'lamoon
[It is] the promise of Allah. Allah does not fail in His promise, but most of the people do not know.
Ya'lamoona zaahiram minal hayaatid dunya wa hum 'anil Aakhirati hum ghaafiloon
They know what is apparent of the worldly life, but they, of the Hereafter, are unaware.
Awalam yatafakkaroo feee anfusihim; maa khalaqal laahus samaawaati wal arda wa maa bainahumaaa illaa bil haqqi wa ajalim musammaa; wa inna kaseeram minan naasi biliqaaa'i Rabbihim lakaafiroon
Do they not contemplate within themselves? Allah has not created the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in truth and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people, in the meeting with their Lord, are disbelievers.
Awalm yaseeroo fil ardi fa-yanzuroo kaifa kaana 'aaqibatul lazeena min qablihim; kaanooo ashadda minhhum quwwatanw wa asaarul arda wa 'amaroohaaa aksara mimmaa 'amaroohaa wa jaaa'athum Rusuluhum bil baiyinaati famaa kaanal laahu liyazli mahum wa laakin kaanooo anfusahum yazlimoon
Have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? They were greater than them in power, and they plowed [or excavated] the earth and built it up more than they [i.e., the Makkans] have built it up, and their messengers came to them with clear evidences. And Allah would not ever have wronged them, but they were wronging themselves.
Summa kaana'aaqibatal lazeena asaaa'us sooo aaa an kazzaboo bi aayaatil laahi wa kaanoo bihaa yastahzi'oon
Then the end of those who did evil was the worst [consequence] because they denied the signs of Allah and used to ridicule them.
