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 Merciful, the Compassionate
By the heaven, holding mansions of the stars, (1) By the Promised Day! (2) And by the witness and that whereunto he beareth testimony, (3) the people of the pit were destroyed (4) by a burning fire (5) When they sat by it, (6) And to that which they did to the believers were witnesses. (7) And what did they dislike from the Muslims, except that the Muslims accepted faith in Allah the Most Honourable, the Most Praiseworthy? (8) to whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and earth. And Allah is the Witness of all things. (9) Verily those who affected the believing men and the believing women, and then repented not, theirs shall be the torment of Hell, and theirs shall be the torment of burning. (10) (But) for those who believe and do good works, for them there are Gardens underneath which rivers flow that is the Great Victory! (11) Verily the grip of thine Lord is severe. (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 is Oft-Forgiving, full of love (towards the pious who are real true believers of Islamic Monotheism), (14) Owner of the throne, the Glorious (15) Who does as He pleases. (16) Hath there come unto thee the story of the hosts (17) of Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) Yet those who deny the truth persist in denial. (19) And Allah is after them, has them surrounded. (20) Nay, but this [divine writ which they reject] is a discourse sublime, (21) in a guarded tablet. (22)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
