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
I swear by the mansions of the stars, (1) by the Promised Day, (2) and by the witness and what is witnessed: (3) Accursed be the People of the Ditch! (4) the fire abounding in fuel, (5) when they were seated around it (6) and were themselves witnesses of what they did with the believers. (7) The only reason for which they tormented the believers was the latter's belief in God, the Majestic, and Praiseworthy. (8) Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is a Witness of all things. (9) Those who persecute the believing men and believing women, and then do not repent, will surely suffer the punishment of Hell, and the torment of burning. (10) But those who believe and do good deeds shall be rewarded with gardens watered by flowing rivers. That is the supreme triumph. (11) Verily the grip of thine Lord is severe. (12) Lo! He it is Who produceth, then reproduceth, (13) And He alone is truly-forgiving, all-embracing in His love, (14) the Owner of the Throne, the Glorious One, (15) Always doing whatever He wills. (16) Did the story of the armies reach you? (17) Of Pharaoh and (the tribe of) Thamud? (18) But they who disbelieve are in [persistent] denial, (19) And Allah encompasses them from behind! (i.e. all their deeds are within His Knowledge, and He will requite them for their deeds). (20) Aye! it is a Recitation glorious, (21) written on a preserved Tablet. (22)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
