Romans will dominate again

A war was underway between the state of Rome and Persia, and as the people of Persia were fire worshippers, that’s why the Arab unbelievers would prefer their domination. On the other hand, the Romans were the people of the Book. That’s why the Muslims preferred their victory. The military forces of Khusraw Parwayz, the king of Persia and Caesar, the king of Rome challenged each other near the border of the Syrian state. After a furious fight, the Persians won the war. It was a bad news for the Muslims. Overwhelmed with the victory, the unbelievers of Makkah started ridiculing the Muslims by saying, ‘You are the people of the holy book and so are the Roman Christians, and the Persians are fire worshipers and we are also idol worshippers. Our brothers have dominated your brothers and if a battle would occur between us, we will also dominate you in a similar way’. At this occasion, the following Ayahs of the Holy Quran were revealed that foretold the future events:
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,
