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 Most Merciful
By the sky containing great 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) Cursed were the people of the ditch (the story of the Boy and the King). (4) of fire fiercely burning [for all who have attained to faith]! (5) while they themselves sat around it (6) to watch what they were doing 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) Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is a Witness of all things. (9) Lo! they who persecute believing men and believing women and repent not, theirs verily will be the doom of hell, and theirs the doom of burning. (10) Lo! those who believe and do good works, theirs will be Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Success. (11) Indeed the seizure of your Lord is very severe. (12) It is verily He who initiates and repeats. (13) He is the All-forgiving, the Most Loving One, (14) Master of the Honourable Throne. (15) Performer of what He desires. (16) Hath there come unto thee the story of the hosts (17) of Pharaoh, and of [the tribe of] Thamud? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) And Allah encompasses them from behind! (i.e. all their deeds are within His Knowledge, and He will requite them for their deeds). (20) Nay, but it is a glorious Koran, (21) written on a preserved Tablet. (22)
Almighty God's Truth.
