Abstract:   (2537 Views)
As viewed by a group of Sunni commentators according to Ibn Abbas's narration, the first verses of the chapter Rum: "Alif. Lam. Mim. The Romans have been defeated In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be victorious …" revealed between two war of Iran and Rome. In the first war the Iranians won and a verse carrying the message of the Romans` victory revealed They were victorious, and the verse was revealed, and they were informed that the Romans would prevail. They see this as one of the miracles of the Qur'an. Researching in the interpretive, hadith, and biographical sources revealed that the commentators' viewpoint is weak in terms of the document and content given the evidence in these and other verses and narrations. According to the correct narration reached by the Shiite narrators, understanding the meaning and interpretation of this verse is not possible by those other than infallible Imams, and the infallible Imams (AS) have interpreted it as Bani Umayyeh and the emergence of Imam Mahdi and the Prophet`s daughter Zahra. Thus, the interpretation of these verses in the two wars of Iran and Rome is incorrect and there is also doubt about the occurrence of such a war.
Keywords: the Verses 1-5 of Rum Chapter, Iranian and Rome, Historical Commentary
