Alif-Laam-Meem . The Romans have been defeated. In the nearby land. And after their defeat, they will soon be dominant. Within a few years.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)J (Part 21, Surah Ar-Room, Ayah 1-4)
After hearing these Ayahs of the Holy Quran, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq said to the unbelievers of Makkah, ‘I swear in the name of Allah , the Romans will dominate the Persians. Therefore, 0 people of Makkah, do not jubilate upon the current results of the war.’ Since there were no apparent signs of Romans becoming victorious, that’s why Abi Bin Khalaf stood abreast of Sayyiduna Siddeeq-e-Akbar and a bet was committed among them of one hundred camels. This bet mentioned that within a period of nine years, if the Romans do not dominate the Persians, then Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq will pay one hundred camels as a ransom amount but if the Romans overpower the Persians, then Abi Bin Khalaf will give one hundred camels. At that time, gambling was not prohibited in Islam.
By the grace of Allah , the predictions of the Holy Quran came true within just seven years. In 6 AH, on the very day of ‘Hudaybiyah Treaty’, the Romans conquered the Persians and the Romans tied their horses in ‘Madaain’ and founded a city in ‘Iraq with the name of ‘Rumiyah’.
1 (Alphabets of the Arabic language-Allah , and to whomever He reveals, know their meanings).
Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq received the hundred camels of the bet from the offspring of Abi Bin Khalaf because Abi Bin Khalaf had died.
The Holy Rasool ordered Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq to donate all the camels in charity (Sadaqah) that were received as a bet ransom from the progeny of Abi Bin Khalaf and not to spend it on his ownself. (Madarik-ut-Tanzeel, vol. 3, pp. 458; part 21, Surah Ar-Room, Ayah 3)
In the war between the Rome and Persia, the Romans were defeated to such an extent that their military power was completely destroyed, and there were no chances of their victory in future. But they became victorious within seven years. This event proved the truthfulness of the Holy Rasool as well as that of the Holy Quran,
