The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By the sun and its heat and 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 draws a veil over it, (4) and by the sky and by Him Who made it; (5) And the earth and Him Who extended it, (6) And a soul and Him Who perfected it (7) And inspired in it the knowledge of its sins and its piety. (8) Prosperous is he who purifies it, (9) And miserable is he who hath buried 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) then the Messenger of God said to them, 'The She-camel of God; let her drink!' (13) But they cried him lies, and hamstrung her, so their Lord crushed them for their sin, and leveled them: (14) He does not fear the consequence. (15)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
