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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the heavens with constellations, (1) And 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 companions of the trench (4) the makers of the fuel-stoked fire! (5) Behold! they sat over against the (fire), (6) And they were witnesses of what they did with the believers. (7) They took revenge on them only because they believed in the All-mighty, the Al-laudable, (8) To whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And Allah, over all things, is Witness. (9) Surely those who tormented the believing men and the believing women and then did not repent, theirs shall be the chastisement of Hell, and theirs shall be the chastisement of burning. (10) As for the righteously striving believers, they will live in Paradise wherein streams flow. This is the greatest triumph. (11) VERILY, thy Sustainer's grip is exceedingly strong! (12) Verily, He it is Who begins (punishment) and repeats (punishment in the Hereafter) (or originates the creation of everything, and then repeats it on the Day of Resurrection). (13) And He only is the Oft Forgiving, the Beloved of His bondmen. (14) Lord of the Throne of Glory, (15) and the Most Effective in His decision. (16) HAS IT ever come within thy ken, the story of the [sinful] hosts (17) of Pharaoh and of Thamood? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) And Allah encompasses them on every side. (20) Indeed, this is a Glorious Koran, (21) [Inscribed] in a Preserved Slate. (22)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
