Commentary

There were two great Empires of the world before arrival of the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in the world – The Empires of Iran and Rome. Those both Dominions used to remain in war condition since long. The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was born in 570 AD and Messenger-hood was bestowed to him in 610 AD. With effect from 602 AD up to after 614 AD, Iran and Rome remained at war. After five years of Muhammad’s Apostleship (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), Iran defeated heavily to the Rome and drove out the Romans from Syria, Egypt and Asia Minor. And then during 615 AD, Iran got ready to assault upon Constantinople, which was Capital of Rome.

 

When the people of Makkah heard this News that disbelievers of Allaah Almighty, Persians who were adorers of fire, had overcome upon the Romans, who were Christians and believers of Allaah Almighty, they said: We (to whom you say Infidels O Muslims!) shall overcome upon you in the same way, because you say yourselves believers. The Muslims suffered a shock from such talks.

 

It has been described in these verses that defeat and victory are in the Power of Allaah Almighty. The war between the Persians and the Romans was their national war – which of them would have more power, had to overcome upon the other. If today, the Persians have got victory, then within nine years, the Romans will overcome upon the Persians, and during that period; the Muslims will overcome upon the Infidels of Arab. And then they will gain double pleasure. Accordingly, this prediction was fulfilled and during 624 AD, the Romans drove out the Persians from their Country and entered in Iran themselves. During the same year, the Muslims defeated the Infidels of Makkah in the Battle of Badr and put them down for ever.
