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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
I CALL TO witness the sky (bespangled) with the signs of the Zodiac, (1) by the promised day, (2) by the witness and the witnessed, (3) destroyed were the people of the trench, (4) [Containing] the fire full of fuel, (5) when they were seated around it (6) witnessing what they were doing. (7) They had naught against them save that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Owner of Praise, (8) to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. God is witness over all things. (9) Those who persecute (or draw into temptation) the Believers, men and women, and do not turn in repentance, will have the Penalty of Hell: They will have the Penalty of the Burning Fire. (10) Lo! those who believe and do good works, theirs will be Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Success. (11) VERILY, thy Sustainer's grip is exceedingly strong! (12) it is He who begins and repeats [His creation], (13) He is the All-forgiving, the Most Loving One, (14) Master of the Honourable Throne. (15) and the Most Effective in His decision. (16) Has the story reached you of the hosts, (17) Of Firon and Samood? (18) Nay! The disbelievers (persisted) in denying (Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his Message of Islamic Monotheism). (19) Whereas Allah is, from behind them, Encompassing. (20) Nay, this is a Glorious Qur'an, (21) [Inscribed] in a Preserved Slate. (22)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
