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
I CALL TO witness the sky (bespangled) with the signs of the Zodiac, (1) By the promised Day (of Judgment); (2) By the witness and the witnessed! (3) the people of the pit were destroyed (4) Of fire fuel-fed, (5) As they sat around it (6) And they were witnesses of what they did with the believers. (7) Against these they had no grudge except that they believed in Allah, the Most Mighty, the Most Praiseworthy, (8) Him to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is Witness to all things. (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) But those who believe and do good deeds shall be rewarded with gardens watered by flowing rivers. That is the supreme triumph. (11) Indeed the seizure of your Lord is very severe. (12) it is He who begins and repeats [His creation], (13) and He is the Ever Forgiving, the Most Loving (14) Lord of the Arsh, the Glorious, (15) Executor of His own will. (16) Has the story of the armies reached you, (17) of Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) Nay! those who disbelieve are in (the act of) giving the lie to the truth. (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) It is indeed a glorious Quran, (21) upon an imperishable tablet [inscribed]. (22)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
