The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the heaven, holding the big stars. (1) and [then bethink thyself of] the promised Day, (2) And the bearer of witness and those against whom the witness is borne. (3) That accursed are the men of the trench (4) Of fire fuel-fed, (5) when they were seated around it (6) witnessing what they were doing. (7) whom they hate for no other reason than that they believe in God, the Almighty, the One to whom all praise is due, (8) Him to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is Witness to all things. (9) Verily, as for those who persecute believing men and believing women, and thereafter do not repent, hell's suffering awaits them: yea, suffering through fire awaits them! (10) (But) for those who believe and do good works, for them there are Gardens underneath which rivers flow that is the Great Victory! (11) The grip of your Lord is severe indeed! (12) it is He who begins and repeats [His creation], (13) And He only is the Oft Forgiving, the Beloved of His bondmen. (14) Lord of the Throne of Glory, (15) Always doing whatever He wills. (16) Has the story reached thee, of the forces- (17) Of the Fir'awn and the Thamud? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) Whereas Allah is, from behind them, Encompassing. (20) Nay; but this is a glorious Qur'an, (21) written on a preserved Tablet. (22)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
