Notes typed by AT8
Edited by AT6


- This Surah was revealed in Holy MAKKAH.
- There is no difference of opinion among the scholars in regards to the place of revelation
 - This Surah is considered one of the PREDICTIONS of the HOLY QUR’AN


Alif Lam Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (Ar-Rum 30:1)

- What is the meaning of Alif Lam Mim?
- Ibn Kathir commented on the Verse by mentioning that this is one of the miracles of ALLAH (SWT) and no one but HIM (SWT) alone knows their meanings.


The Romans have been defeated. (Ar-Rum 30:2)


In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. (Ar-Rum 30:3)

-  The word RUM (ROMANS) means the Caucasian Race
 - Prophet Ishaaq had two sons named Eesaa and Yacoub

 - The Jews are descended from the loins of Yaqoub (AS)
- As for the Caucasian Race of Europe, they are descended from the loins of Eesa
- Please note that the Eesa mentioned above is NOT NABI ISA (as). He was born many years before and was the son of Nabi Ishaaq (AS)

- The point to remeber here is the RUM (ROMANS) are not a geographic entity, rather they are a racial entity. Therefor where ever you witness the Caucasian Race on earth today, you must consider them to be classified as RUM (ROMANS).

- Please note that the Sons of Yaqoub are the Jews and the sons of Eesa (NOT JESUS) are the Caucasian Race. Therefore both the Jews and the Caucasians are first cousins
- There was enmity between Eesa and Yaqoub, the sons of Nabi Ishaaq
- Yacoub had to migrate to a place called HARAN
- Here Nabi Yacoub, was united with his uncle LEBAN who had two daughters named LEA and RACHEL

- Lea was not as beautiful as Rachel and Nabi Yaqoub decided to propose to Rachel and marry her.
 - Leban agreed to marry Rachel to Yaqoub, however, Leban sent Lea instead of Rachel to the bedroom in the dark and Yaqoub ended up having intercourse with Lea.

- When Nabi Yaqoub woke up the next morning he saw Lea instead of Rachel and asked his uncle why he had tricked him
 - Leban replied that in their cultuure the older sister was to be married before the younger sister, however if he preferred, his uncle would marry Rachel to him as well.
 - Marrying both sisters is not HALAL in the SHARIA of MUHAMMAD (SAWS), however, it was HALAL in the SHARIA of YAQOUB

- This Surah was revealed in MAKKAH, 7 YEARS BEFORE HIJRA
- Historically 8 Years before the advent of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS), a coup took place in the Byzantium Empire .
- The Emperor at the time was MAURICE.
- He was overthrown in a coup by a man named PHOCUS.

- Phocus succeeded Maurice as Emperor of the Byzantium Empire
- Phocus was brutal and killed the five sons of Maurice in front of his very eyes.
- Phocus then killed the emperor Maurice as well and hanged all their heads in the public square in the city of Constantinople

- One week later, Phocus murdered the Empress (the wife of Maurice) and their three daughters, annihilating the entire family of Maurice
- This Coup sent a shockwave through the Middle East and the Persian Emperor KHUSRAU PARVES, became enraged at the whole coup.
- This was because Maurice was the one who installed Parvez on the throne in Perisa

- Maurice was the benefactor, ally and godfather of Parvez.
- Thus when news reached him about the brutal murder of Maurice and his entire family by Phocus, the Persian emperor mustered a huge army to take revenge on Phocus in the year 603 C.E

- The war was now in motion and within ONE YEAR the ROMANS were defeated by the Persians and Phocus was killed and dethroned
- Everyone thought that the Persians were going to retreat after achieving their goal of killing Phocus.
 - However, the Persians began a land grab project against the Byzantium Empire

- At the time of this war, the Muslims of MAKKAH especially Abu Bakr were cheering for the ROMANS, because they considered them to be People of the BOOK
- The Pagans of Quraish however were cheering for the Persians because they were brothers in PAGANISM

- As ALLAH SWT decreed, the PERSIANS won the battle against the Romans.
 - The Quraish began to taunt and tease the Muslims, saying, “look your brothers who were supposedly given scriptures from ALLAH SWT have been defeated and humiliated.”

- The Quraish went further and threatened the Muslims saying, “We the Quraish will annihilate you Muslims in the same manner and we will humiliate you in the same manner.”
- This behaviour and open threat by the pagans of Makkah, caused deep pain in the hearts of all the Muslims, especially Abu Bakr.
 - Then ALLAH SWT revealed the VERSES of SURAH RUM
- In order to reassure the Muslims that there is light at the end of the tunnel and the one who laughs last, will laugh the best.

Alif Lam Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (Ar-Rum 30:1)

The Romans have been defeated. (Ar-Rum 30:2)

In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. (Ar-Rum 30:3)


Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians), (Ar-Rum 30:4)

- The Persians killed Phocus and then decided to put a spin on the entire campaign of revenge for the murder of Maurice.
- The Persians became greedy and went for Roman controlled land saying that this is now a battle between the ZORASTRIANS and the CHRISTIANS 

- At this time Heraclius was the successor the Byzantium Throne.
-  However, given the Persian ambition, Heraclius had to flee to North Africa, into Tunisia.
  - From there Heraclius planned and plotted to regain the lost lands and power of the Roman Empire

- During the Persian Campaign 26 000 JEWS joined the Persians to fight against the Christians.
 90 000 Christians were murdered in cold blood and hundreds of churches were desecrated and razed to the ground
 - When Heraclius ran away to Tunisia, the Emperor of Perisa sent him a letter

The letter read:

From Khusrau, the GREATEST OF ALL gods, the Master of the WHOLE WORLD
To Heraclius, his most wretched and most stupid servant
You say you have trust in your lord, why then did your Lord not save JERUSALEM from me?

- During the Persian Campaign to annihilate the Roman empire another conflict was raging in the Middle East
- MUHAMMAD (SAWS) announced His Prophethood and the Muslims were severely persecuted
- Hence the Prophet (SAWS) asked the Muslims to migrate from MAKKAH to ETHIOPIA, a land controlled by the NEGUS, who was an ally to the ROMAN EMPIRE due to their allegiance to Christianity
- This Migration (HIJRA) to Ethiopia became the first HIJRA in ISLAM

- When Quraish tried to convince the NEGUS of Ethipoia, to return the Muslims of Makkah back into their hands, the Negus flatly refused and said, “Not even for a mountain of GOLD will I ever hand the Muslims to you.”

- Like ALLAH SWT predicted in the HOLY QURAN, in the year 624 C.E., Heraclius mustered a huge Christian Army and defeated the Persians
- Therefore the Muslims had a dual reason to rejoice: the victory of the Romans over the Persians and the victory of the Muslims over the pagans of Quraish at the Battle of Badr

Narrated Abu Sa'eed: "On the Day of (the battle of) Badr, the Romans had a victory over the Persians. So the believers were pleased with that, then the following was revealed: Alif Lam Mim. The Romans have been defeated..." up to His saying: '...the believers will rejoice. (30:1-4)" He said: "So the believers were happy with the victory of the Romans over the Persians. (Jami At Tirmdhi: (1/43) Hadith 2935)

So Allah said about that: 'And on that day, the believers will rejoice - with the help of Allah. He helps whom He wills, and He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful (30:4 & 5). The Quraish wanted the Persians to be victorious since they were not people of the Book, nor did they believe in the Resurrection.
So when Allah revealed these Ayat, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, went out, proclaiming throughout Makkah: 'Alif Lam Mim. The Romans have been defeated. In the nearest land, and they, after their defeat, will be victorious, in Bid' years (30:1-4).' Some of the Quraish said: 'Then this is (a bet) between us and you.
Your companion claims that the Romans will defeat the Persians in Bid' years, so why have a bet on that between us and you?' Abu Bakr said: 'Yes.' This was before betting has been forbidden. So Abu Bakr and the idolaters made a bet, and they said to Abu Bakr: 'What do you think - Bid' means something between three and nine years, so let us agree on the middle.'
So they agreed on six years; Then six years passed without the Romans being victorious. The idolaters took what they won in the bet from Abu Bakr. When the seventh year came and the Romans were finally victorious over the Persians, the Muslims rebuked Abu Bakr for agreeing to six years. He said: 'Because Allah said: 'In Bid' years.' At that time, many people became Muslims." [Jami` at-Tirmidhi Vol. 1, Book 44, Hadith 3194]

- Please note that betting was not yet made HARAM in ISLAM when the bet between Abu Bakr and the Pagans of Makkah mentioned above took place.

- Adnaa Al Ardh means the LOWEST LAND
 - Geographically we now know that the lowest land on Earth is the land of Jordan, in which the battle took place between the Romans and the Persians.
- However, Muhammad (SAWS) had no way of knowing this geographical fact in his lifetime.
- This proves that Muhammad (SAWS) was truly the Holy Messenger of ALLAH (SWT)

- This Surah also teaches us that we the Muslims are allowed to unite with the Christians in projects that have an outcome that ALLAH (SWT) will be pleased with
- For example, Muslims and Christians against Homosexuality and Alcohol

Help you one another in AlBirr and AtTaqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Ma'idah 5:2)
For ex Muslims and Christians unite against DARWANISM and RACISM

- Do not take this as a general condition that we can unite with Christians for any purpose
- We can only unite with Christians in GOODNESS

- Muawiyah married a Christian woman and used her tribe to fight against other Christians for the benefit of the Muslims
 - The Shia used this marriage of Muawiyah with a Christian against him and even accused his wife of adultery with a Christian.
 - The Shia books are extremely filthy, we should be on high alert against them and avoid their company and their corrupted ideology

- This Surah also teaches us that Muslims and Christians will always cheer for each other

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikun (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud. (Al-Ma'idah 5:82)

- The reason why we the Muslims are close to the Christians is because:

Reason # 1 - We worship the same God even though the Christians went astray by claiming God begot a Son

- However only MUSLIMS can enjoy the HONOUR of using the word ALLAH for GOD

Reason # 2 - We believe in Jesus (AS)

- The Muslim and the Christian are the only two people in the world that believe in Jesus

Reason # 3 - We believe in Angels, especially the Angel GABRIEL

Reason # 4 - We believe in the Human Soul

Reason # 5 - We believe in Prophet Abraham

- This is why we are called the Abrahamic faith

Reason # 6 - We believe in the Day of Resurrection

Reason # 7 - We believe in Paradise and the Hellfire

Reason # 8 - We believe that homosexuality is wrong and evil
- A true Muslims will never open a gay mosque and a true Christian will not open a gay church because both the QURAN and the Bible condemn homosexuality

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13) King James Version

- Thus the Muslims and Christians have many things in common

- We should not be surprised that the Prophet (SAWS) mentioned that one of the signs of the LAST DAYS is that the Muslims and the Christians will unite against the ANTICHRIST

- This is the battle of ARMAGEDDON, which will come in PHASES
- The Antichrist in the Hadith is the JEWS and the rest of the PAGANS (Hindus, Buddishts etc) who do not believe in JESUS (a.s)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ
In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful. (Ar-Rum 30:5)

- Allah (SWT) is speaking about HIS HELP in the above AYAH
- HE (SWT) gives the sweetness of victory and the bitterness of defeat in turns to mankind.
- Sometimes the victory is for the Kaafirs and sometimes victory is reserved for the MUSLIMS

...And these days [of varying conditions] We alternate among the people so that Allah may make evident those who believe and [may] take to Himself from among you martyrs - and Allah does not like the wrongdoers - (Aali Imran 3:140)

- We are witnessing the events in the world with our very eyes today and following the progress of the ISLAMIC STATE
- We as Muslims should not be surprised if one day we hear that the ISLAMIC STATE has lost an oilfield, a town, a dam or a city in battle with the Kuffaar
- We are currently in battle with the KURDS, who are Zionists in their ideology
- ALLAH (SWT) tests the believers with defeat to see who is strong in faith and to take from the Muslims, victorious martyrs
- Therefore whenever we face defeat, we must not lose faith, instead we must increase our FAITH


- You cannot expect to receive the help of ALLAH (SWT) when you are a vagabond
- The RASOOL (SAWS) used to starve in MAKKAH. However, once he (SAWS) established the KHILAFAH in MEDINA, we were able to FILL OUR STOMACHS by the grace of ALLAH

Narrated by Ibn Umar: “We did not eat our fill except after we had conquered Khaibar.“ [Sahih Bukhari (5/140) No. 4243]

Narrated by 'Aisha: When Khaibar was conquered, we said, "Now we will eat our fill of dates!" [Sahih Bukhari (6/140) No. 4242]

- The Prophet (SAWS) did not conquer one inch of land until he established the MUSLIM base in MEDINA
- Every KAAFIR is afraid of the Muslims base. The Arabic word for the BASE is AL-QAEDA

And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many [alternative] locations and abundance. And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him - his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful. (An-Nisa 4:100)

- The Kaafirs are not concerned with the Zionist state of Israel, the homosexual state of California or the Black magic state of Haiti, or the Pagan state of India.
- The Kaafirs are only worried about the ISLAMIC STATE
- They do not even mind the Buddhist state of Burma or the Catholic state of Vatican
- Now we can be sure to witness the coalition of all these EVIL states and ideologies against the ISLAMIC STATE

Lord Curzon the British Foreign Secretary in 1924 said, “We must put an end to anything which brings about any Islamic unity between the sons of the Muslims. As we have already succeeded in finishing off the Caliphate, so we must ensure that there will never arise again unity for the Muslims, whether it be intellectual or cultural unity.”

- You cannot expect ALLAH (SWT) help unless you FIGHT IN THE WAY OF ALLAH ALONE

Narrated by Abu Musa: A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause." [al-Bukhari (123) and Muslim (1904)]

- Take for example Yasser Arafat who was fighting to liberate Palestine from Zionist control. This is because Arafat was fighting in the name of Arab nationalism and socialism.
- A point to note that just because you fight the Crusaders or other armies of Satan, does not give you the honour of being on the PATH OF ALLAH
- In order for ALLAH (SWT) help to arrive, you must be sincere MUSLIM whose singular aim is to make THE WORDS THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH AND MUHAMMAD (SAWS) IS HIS MESSENGER the highest.

..."Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him]. (Al-Ma’idah 5:27)

- Some people are sincere but they are sincerely wrong


And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah] (Al-Baqarah 2:45)

- When we ask ALLAH (SWT) for something we must not be hasty but remain patient for His decree to arrive

Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, "When is the help of Allah?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near. (Al-Baqarah 2:214)

- A believer must always have faith that the HELP of ALLAH (SWT) is NEAR


And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient. (Al-Anfal 8:46)

- Why is it that the devil Bashar al-Assad is still in power?
- This is because the Mujahideen fighting Bashar al-Assad are not united.
- Some of the Mujahideen believe in DEMOCRACY and are IGNORANT about the fact that Democracy is the greatest SHIRK
- The disunity among the Mujahideen provided a lifeline to Bashar al-Assad.

- The Kuffar are fascinated with the SKILFUL LEADERSHIP of the KHALIFAH ABU BAKR AL-BAHGDADI

O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result. (An-Nisa 4:59)

- If we do not have wise leadership, the HYPOCRITES will infiltrate the MUSLIM CAMP
- In ALGERIA, the hypocrites infiltrated the MUJAHIDEEN, killed children and raped women, only to facilitate the population of ALGERIA to turn against the MUJAHIDEEN

- Fearing ALLAH (SWT) means having TAQWA ingrained in your heart

...And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent. (At-Talaq 65:2-3)

- The Help of ALLAH (SWT) departs from the believers once they dabble in sins.

When Umar bin al-Khattab (RA) dispatched the army of Saad bin Abi Waqqas (RA) to the Battle of al-Qadisiyyah, he advised him: “Fear your sins more than you fear the enemy as your sins are more dangerous to you than your enemy. We Muslims are only victorious over our enemy because their sins outnumber ours, not for any other reason. If our sins were equal to those of our enemy, then they would defeat us due to their superior numbers and resources.” [NO TAKHREEJ]

- As Muslims we need to prepare for Marriage and HAJJ as well
- We cannot set out empty headed and empty handed
- Being unprepared is the methodology of a loser

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged. (Al-Anfal 8:60)

...And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah. And fear Me, O you of understanding. (Al-Baqarah 2:197)

- ALLAH (SWT) reminded us that the best of preparation is TAQWA (FEAR OF ALLAH)

Uqbah bin Amir (RA) narrated: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and he was on the minbar when he read the verse: "(And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war...) [8:60], Verily strength is in throwing (i.e. shooting), verily strength is in throwing, verily strength is in throwing.” [Sahih Muslim (3/1522) No. 1917, Musnad Ahmad (4/156) No. 17468, Sunan Abu Dawud (3/13) No. 2514, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/270) No. 3083, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/91) No. 2813, Sunan al-Darime (2/269) No. 2404]
- The Prophet (SAWS) taught us that our strength is in our FIRE POWER
- Muslims should make appropriate preparation and then put our trust in ALLAH
- We cannot blindly put our trust in ALLAH without preparing, that is akin to stupidity
- not PIETY

Anas ibn Malik reported that someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah, shall I tether it and trust in Allah or untie it and place trust in Allah”? He said, “Tie it and trust in Allah." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/668) No. 2517, Sahih Ibn Hibban (2/510) No. 731, Shu'ab al-Iman al-Bayhaqi (2/428) No. 1161]

- Some people expect the HELP OF ALLAH (SWT) but are fighting for causes other than SHARIAH.
- They fight for Socialism, Nationalism, Racism, Tribalism, etc
- The GREATEST FIQH is to understand TAUHEED
- If the Muslims fight their enemies in the name of anything else other than ISLAM, we will be defeated
- The Islamic State should section off all the Christians in the Islamic State because they believe that a Woman gave birth to their God
- The Jews are much more intelligent to believe in the Christian creed
- When Muslims fight for causes other than ALLAH (SWT) cause, we are using ALLAH without being sincere to HIM
- At no time in the HISTORY OF ISRAEL have they ever come face to face with the MUJAHIDEEN
- The JEWS have only fought pagan Arabs who believe in nationalism, socialism and shiaism

They will not fight you all except within fortified cities or from behind walls. Their violence among themselves is severe. You think they are together, but their hearts are diverse. That is because they are a people who do not reason. (Al-Hashr 59:14)

- Today JORDAN is the wall between the MUJAHIDEEN and ISRAEL
- In-fact all the ARAB States who have a border with ISRAEL can be considered walls between the Mujahideen and the Jews
- We need to destroy all the borders on the Muslim Lands in order to unite against the Evil and Filthy Jews
- The KHALIFAH ABU BAKR AL-BAGHDADI has torn up the Sykes Picot Agreement and we are on a mission to regain our stolen lands
- If the Mujahideen can destroy all the borders with IRAQ, we will have a million-man army overnight to send all the human filth into the pit of HELLFIRE

- An Islamic state without justice will fail miserably
- However a Kaafir state with justice will prevail

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: Hence it was said that Allah supports just nations even if they are kaafirs, and He does not support unjust nations even if they are Muslims. The Prophet (SAW) said: “No sin brings a swifter punishment than injustice and severing the ties of kinship.” The unjust person will be punished in this world even if he is forgiven and granted mercy in the Hereafter. That is because justice is the foundation of all things. If a thing is based on justice it will endure, even if its founder has no share in the Hereafter. If it is not based on justice then it will not endure, even if its founder has faith for which he will be rewarded in the Hereafter. [Majmua al-Fataawa (28/146)]

- Therefore any state that rules without justice will eventually fail

O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted. (An-Nisa 4:135)

- Even the Kaafir courts have a law against conspiring to prevent the course of justice
- This means to lie in court to send an innocent person to death

- Did you know that if the Kaafirs are suffering and make sincere Dua, ALLAH (SWT) will answer them with HIS HELP?

And when they board a ship, they supplicate Allah, sincere to Him in religion. But when He delivers them to the land, at once they associate others with Him (Al-’Ankabut 29:65)

- This is because they made their worship only for HIM during their DUA

Salman (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, ‘Nothing averts the decree except supplication and nothing but piety prolongs life.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/448) No. 2139, Musnad Ahmad (5/280) No. 22466]

- DUA is the weapon of a believer
- The Prophet (SAWS) warned us to fear the DUA of a person who is oppressed because there is no barrier between his dua and ALLAH (SWT)

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu'adh to Yemen and said, "Fear the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allah." [al-Bukhari (1496) and Muslim (19)]

- Every LAST THIRD OF THE NIGHT we must make DUA to ALLAH (SWT) to achieve our goals.

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: 'Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?'" [al-Bukhari (7494) (also by Muslim (758), Malik (619), at-Tirmidhi (3498) and Abu Dawud (1315)].

وَعْدَ اللَّهِ لَا يُخْلِفُ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
(It is) a Promise of Allah (i.e. Allah will give victory to the Romans against the Persians), and Allah fails not in His Promise, but most of men know not. (Ar-Rum 30:6)

- This AYAH is extremely important because HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
- In the time of the Prophet (SAWS) there were two so called superpowers on Earth. These were the Persians and the Romans
- The Muslims would cheer for the Romans and the Quraish would cheer for the Persians
- In time the Muslims came from behind these empires and defeated and destroyed both of them to their graves
- In 1453 CE Muhammad Fateh conquered Constantinople and from then on it is called ISTANBUL (THE LAND OF ISLAM)
- the Muslims defeated the Persians at the battle of Qadisiya
- Similarly in our lifetime, the MUJAHIDEEN will come from behind and soon destroy the RUSSIAN EMPIRE and the American Empire in order to repeat HISTORY again
- The Americans will be destroyed in their war in AFGHANISTAN
- because the war against the MUJAHIDEEN is unwinnable
- When AMERICA falls, it will break up into several different states just like USSR was destroyed by the MUJAHIDEEN
- AFGHANISTAN is the graveyard for all so called super powers
- Whenever the MUSLIMS destroy an empire, it will never be brought back
- IT will remain confined to the dustbin of HISTORY
