Roman-Persian Wars

Qur’aanic Verses 30:2, 3:

30:2

30:3

Transliteration:

2. Ghulibati alrroomu

3. Fee adna al-ardi wahum min baAAdi ghalabihim sayaghliboona

Translation:

2. The Romans have been defeated.

3. In the nearby land. But they (the Romans), after this defeat of theirs, shall gain victory.2

Study Note:

2. The Persians had defeated the Romans in 613 A.D. And in 622 the Romans defeated the Peersians. That was within 10 years as the next Verse correctly predicted. These Verses were obviously revealed soon after the Romans’ defeat in 613 A.D. It was a veritable prophecy for the people at the time of this revelation. The believers’ sympathies then were with the Christian Romans, whereas the disbelievers sympathized with the then pagan Persians as Verse 4 below also indicates.


 The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil V, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II,  Manzil III and Manzil IV of the series are already published.
