The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
By the heaven of the constellations! (1) By the promised Day (of Judgment); (2) And [by] the witness and what is witnessed, (3) That accursed are the men of the trench (4) the fire with its fuel, (5) when they were seated around it (6) and were witnessing what they did to the believers. (7) They had naught against them save that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Owner of Praise, (8) Whose kingdom spreads over the heavens and the earth. God is witness over everything. (9) Those who persecute the believing men and women without repenting will suffer the torment of hell and that of the burning fire. (10) But those who believe and do good deeds shall be rewarded with gardens watered by flowing rivers. That is the supreme triumph. (11) The grip of your Lord is indeed severe, (12) It is verily He who initiates and repeats. (13) and He is the Ever Forgiving, the Most Loving (14) Lord of the Throne of Glory, (15) Doer of whatsoever He intendeth. (16) Has there reached you the story of the soldiers - (17) [Those of] Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) Yet the infidels persist in denial. (19) although Allah surrounds them. (20) In fact it (what they deny) is the Noble Qur’an. (21) upon an imperishable tablet [inscribed]. (22)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
