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
By the sun and its midmorning, (1) by the moon, which follows it, (2) And by oath of the day when it reveals it (3) And the night when it draws a veil over it, (4) By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure; (5) And by oath of the earth and by oath of Him Who spread it. (6) Consider the human self, and how it is formed in accordance with what it is meant to be, (7) and how it is imbued with moral failings as well as with consciousness of God! (8) He who purifies it will prosper, (9) And he has failed who instills it [with corruption]. (10) In their presumptuous insolence the Thamud called the Truth a lie (11) when that most hapless wretch from among them rushed forward [to commit his evil deed,] (12) although God's apostle had told them, "It is a she-camel belonging to God, so let her drink [and do her no harm]!" (13) Then they rejected him (as a false prophet), and they hamstrung her. So their Lord, on account of their crime, obliterated their traces and made them equal (in destruction, high and low)! (14) And He fears not its consequence. (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
