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 the sky, (displaying) the Zodiacal Signs; (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) destroyed were the people of the trench, (4) Fire supplied (abundantly) with fuel, (5) while they sat around it, (6) And were themselves the witnesses of what they did to the believers. (7) And they did not take vengeance on them for aught except that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Praised, (8) to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. Allah witnesses everything. (9) Indeed, those who have tortured the believing men and believing women and then have not repented will have the punishment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the Burning Fire. (10) Indeed those who believed and did good deeds for them are Gardens beneath which rivers flow; this is the great success. (11) The vengeance of God is terribly severe. (12) It is verily He who initiates and repeats. (13) And He alone is truly-forgiving, all-embracing in His love, (14) Owner of the throne, the Glorious (15) Doer (without let) of all that He intends. (16) Hath there come unto thee the story of the hosts (17) of the Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) Nay, but the unbelievers still cry lies, (19) although Allah surrounds them. (20) Aye! it is a Recitation glorious, (21) upon an imperishable tablet [inscribed]. (22)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
