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
I CALL TO witness the sky (bespangled) with the signs of the Zodiac, (1) by the promised day, (2) And the witness and the witnessed, (3) (Self-)destroyed were the owners of the ditch (4) by a burning fire (5) while they themselves sat around it (6) And they themselves are witnesses to what they were doing to the Muslims! (7) And they ill-treated them for no other reason than that they believed in Allah, Exalted in Power, Worthy of all Praise!- (8) Whose kingdom spreads over the heavens and the earth. God is witness over everything. (9) Those who persecuted the believing men and women and never repented, there is for them the punishment of Gehenna (Hell), and for them the punishment of the 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) The grip of your Lord is indeed severe, (12) It is verily He who initiates and repeats. (13) and He is the All-forgiving, the All-loving, (14) Lord of the Throne, the Glorious, (15) Doer of what He will. (16) Has the story reached thee, of the forces- (17) Pharaoh and Thamood? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) Allah encompasses them all from behind. (20) But this is an honored Qur'an (21) inscribed on a well-guarded Tablet. (22)
Almighty God's Truth.
