The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By the heaven of the constellations! (1) and by the promised Day, (2) by the Witness and the witnessed, (3) Accursed be the People of the Ditch! (4) the fire with its fuel, (5) When they sat by it, (6) and were witnessing what they did to the believers. (7) whom they hated for no other reason than that they believed in God, the Almighty, the Praiseworthy, (8) to whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and earth. And Allah is the Witness of all things. (9) Those who persecuted the believing men and women and never repented, there is for them the punishment of Gehenna (Hell), and for them the punishment of the burning. (10) Verily those who believed and worked righteous works, theirs shall be Gardens whereunder the rivers flow; that is the supreme achievement. (11) Lo! the punishment of thy Lord is stern. (12) Verily, He it is Who begins (punishment) and repeats (punishment in the Hereafter) (or originates the creation of everything, and then repeats it on the Day of Resurrection). (13) and He is the Forgiving and Loving One. (14) in sublime almightiness enthroned, (15) Doer of whatsoever He intendeth. (16) Has there reached you the story of the soldiers - (17) [Those of] Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) Nay, but the unbelievers still cry lies, (19) While Allah encompasses them from behind. (20) But this is an honored Qur'an (21) inscribed on a well-guarded Tablet. (22)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
