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
I CALL TO witness the sky (bespangled) with the signs of the Zodiac, (1) by the Promised Day, (2) and [of] Him who witnesses [all,] and [of] that unto which witness is borne [by Him]! (3) slain were the Men of the Pit, (4) by a burning fire (5) When they sat by it, (6) And they, to what they were doing against the believers, were witnesses. (7) They had no other reason for hating them except that they believed in God the mighty, worthy of praise, (8) Who, to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is Witness over everything. (9) Surely for those who persecute believers, men and women, and do not repent afterwards, is the punishment of Hell, and the punishment of burning. (10) As for the righteously striving believers, they will live in Paradise wherein streams flow. This is the greatest triumph. (11) Stern indeed is your Lord's punishment. (12) Lo! He it is Who produceth, then reproduceth, (13) He is the forgiving and the loving, (14) The Lord of the Glorious Throne, (15) Always doing whatever He wills. (16) Hath there come unto thee the story of the hosts (17) [Those of] Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) In fact, the disbelievers had always rejected (Our revelations). (19) And Allah, all unseen, surroundeth them. (20) But this is an honored Qur'an (21) upon an imperishable tablet [inscribed]. (22)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
