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 Merciful, the Compassionate
By the heaven adorned with big 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) Perish the fellows of the ditch, (4) Of the fire (kept burning) with fuel, (5) while they sat around it, (6) and were witnessing what they did to the believers. (7) and their revenge on them was only because they believed in Allah, the Almighty, the Praised, (8) to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. God is witness over all things. (9) Surely (as for) those who persecute the believing men and the believing women, then do not repent, they shall have the chastisement of hell, and they shall have the chastisement of burning. (10) For those who believe and do righteous deeds, will be Gardens; beneath which rivers flow: That is the great Salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires), (11) Stern indeed is your Lord's punishment. (12) Lo! He it is Who produceth, then reproduceth, (13) He is the forgiving and the loving, (14) Lord of the Throne, the All-glorious, (15) Doer (without let) of all that He intends. (16) Have you not heard the story of the hosts (17) of the Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) But God surrounds them from all sides. (20) It is indeed a glorious Quran, (21) inscribed on a well-guarded Tablet. (22)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
