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 morning brightness, (1) and by the moon as it follows it; (2) And [by] the day when it displays it (3) And [by] the night when it covers it (4) And the heaven and Him Who made it, (5) The earth and its spreading out, (6) And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it (7) And inspired it with the wickedness thereof and the piety thereof, (8) He who nourishes it will surely be successful, (9) And he fails that corrupts it! (10) TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud, (11) When the most wicked man among them went forth (to kill the she-camel). (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 gave him the lie, and cruelly slaughtered her - whereupon their Sustainer visited them with utter destruction for this their sin, destroying them all alike: (14) He dreadeth not the sequel (of events). (15)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
