The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the sun and his brightness, (1) and by the moon as it follows it, (2) Consider the day as it reveals the world, (3) and by the night when it enshrouds him! (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) And the earth and Him Who extended it, (6) and by the soul and by Him Who perfectly proportioned it, (7) and inspired it to lewdness and godfearing! (8) He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow, (9) and he who corrupts it is sure to fail. (10) Thamood cried lies in their insolence (11) Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety). (12) The Messenger of God told them, "This is a she-camel, belonging to God. Do not deprive her of her share of water". (13) But they denied him and hamstrung her. So their Lord brought down upon them destruction for their sin and made it equal [upon all of them]. (14) He did not fear the consequences. (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
