The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the heaven, holding mansions of the stars, (1) and by the promised Day, (2) and by the witness and what is witnessed: (3) The companions of the pit were killed (4) of fire fiercely burning [for all who have attained to faith]! (5) When they were sitting near it (6) and were witnessing what they did to the believers. (7) And they ill-treated them for no other reason than that they believed in Allah, Exalted in Power, Worthy of all Praise!- (8) To whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And Allah, over all things, is Witness. (9) Those who persecute (or draw into temptation) the Believers, men and women, and do not turn in repentance, will have the Penalty of Hell: They will have the Penalty of the Burning Fire. (10) Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds will have gardens beneath which rivers flow. That is the great attainment. (11) VERILY, thy Sustainer's grip is exceedingly strong! (12) Indeed it is He Who initiates and redoes. (13) And He is the Forgiving, the Loving, (14) the Lord of the Glorious Throne, (15) Executor of His own will. (16) HAS IT ever come within thy ken, the story of the [sinful] hosts (17) Of the Fir'awn and the Thamud? (18) Yet the unbelievers still belie, (19) And Allah is after them, has them surrounded. (20) Aye! it is a Recitation glorious, (21) (Inscribed) in a Tablet Preserved! (22)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
