The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By the sky containing great stars (1) by the Promised Day, (2) And by the witnessing day (i.e. Friday), and by the witnessed day [i.e. the day of 'Arafat (Hajj) the ninth of Dhul-Hijjah]; (3) Cursed were the people of the ditch (the story of the Boy and the King). (4) the makers of the fuel-stoked fire! (5) They sat by it (6) to watch what they were doing to the believers, (7) They had no other reason for hating them except that they believed in God the mighty, worthy of praise, (8) and the One to whom belongs the heavens and the earth. God is the Witness of all things. (9) Lo! they who persecute believing men and believing women and repent not, theirs verily will be the doom of hell, and theirs the doom of burning. (10) Lo! those who believe and do good works, theirs will be Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Success. (11) The vengeance of God is terribly severe. (12) Surely He it is Who originates and reproduces, (13) and He is the All-forgiving, the All-loving, (14) The Lord of the Glorious Throne, (15) and the Most Effective in His decision. (16) Have you not heard the story of the hosts (17) Of the Fir'awn and the Thamud? (18) Nay, but the unbelievers still cry lies, (19) Allah encompasses them all from behind. (20) Nay, but this [divine writ which they reject] is a discourse sublime, (21) that exists in a well-guarded tablet. (22)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
