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 with its impregnable castles; (1) And by the Promised Day. (2) By the witness and the witnessed! (3) THEY DESTROY [but] themselves, they who would ready a pit (4) Of fire fuel-fed, (5) When they were sitting at its edge. (6) witnessing what they were doing. (7) whom they hate for no other reason than that they believe in God, the Almighty, the One to whom all praise is due, (8) Who, to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is Witness over everything. (9) Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance, (to Allah), will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire. (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) Indeed, the seizing of your Lord is severe. (12) Indeed it is He Who initiates and redoes. (13) And He is the Forgiving, the Affectionate, (14) Lord of the Throne, the All-glorious, (15) The Doer of whatever He wants. (16) Did the story of the armies reach you? (17) Of the Fir'awn and the Thamud? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) And Allah, all unseen, surroundeth them. (20) But this is an honored Qur'an (21) in a guarded tablet. (22)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
