The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
CONSIDER the sun and its radiant brightness, (1) And [by] the moon when it follows it (2) And the day when it shows it, (3) The night when it covers him over, (4) by the heavens and that (Power) which established them, (5) by the earth and Who spread it, (6) By the soul, and That which shaped it (7) And inspired in it the knowledge of its sins and its piety. (8) He who nourishes it will surely be successful, (9) And indeed he fails who corrupts his ownself (i.e. disobeys what Allah has ordered by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism or by following polytheism, etc. or by doing every kind of evil wicked deeds). (10) TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud, (11) When among them the great wretch arose, (12) But the Messenger of Allah said to them: "It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar her not from) having her drink!" (13) But they called him a liar and slaughtered her, therefore their Lord crushed them for their sin and levelled them (with the ground). (14) He dreadeth not the sequel (of events). (15)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
