This "prophecy", probably the only one in the Qur'an, is totally unclear at all, for the Romans were defeated many times and won victories many times also. It is not clear which particular battle theses verses were refering to. Also, it is not clear at all why Muslims (believers) shall rejoice at this victory (the Romans - Byzantines were Catholics)? Which particular event is this?
