The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the heaven adorned with big stars. (1) By the Promised Day! (2) By the witness and the witnessed! (3) Cursed were the companions of the trench (4) the fire abounding in fuel, (5) while they themselves sat around it (6) And they, to what they were doing against the believers, were witnesses. (7) and their revenge on them was only because they believed in Allah, the Almighty, the Praised, (8) Whose kingdom spreads over the heavens and the earth. God is witness over everything. (9) Verily, as for those who persecute believing men and believing women, and thereafter do not repent, hell's suffering awaits them: yea, suffering through fire awaits them! (10) As for those who believed and acted righteously, theirs shall be Gardens beneath which rivers flow. That is the great triumph. (11) Verily the grip of thine Lord is severe. (12) Indeed it is He Who initiates and redoes. (13) And He is the Fogiving, the Loving, (14) Master of the Honourable Throne. (15) He does what He intends (or wills). (16) Has the story reached thee, of the forces- (17) of the Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) And yet the Unbelievers (persist) in rejecting (the Truth)! (19) But Allah doth encompass them from behind! (20) This is indeed the glorious Qur'an (21) In the Preserved Tablet. (22)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
