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 Dispenser of Grace
By heaven of the constellations, (1) And by oath of 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) slain were the Men of the Pit, (4) Full of fire fed by faggots, (5) Lo! [With glee do] they contemplate that [fire,] (6) Witnessing what they had done to the believers! (7) They had naught against them save that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Owner of Praise, (8) To Him only belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is a Witness over all things. (9) Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance, (to Allah), will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire. (10) As for those who believed and acted righteously, theirs shall be Gardens beneath which rivers flow. That is the great triumph. (11) The grip of your Lord is indeed severe, (12) Surely it is He who originates, and brings again, (13) And He is the Fogiving, the Loving, (14) Lord of the Throne, the Glorious, (15) Always doing whatever He wills. (16) Have you not heard the story of the hosts (17) [Those of] Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) In fact the disbelievers are in denial. (19) but all the while God encompasses them [with His knowledge and might] without their being aware of it. (20) It is indeed a glorious Quran, (21) upon an imperishable tablet [inscribed]. (22)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
