The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the heaven of the constellations! (1) And the promised day, (2) And the witness and the witnessed, (3) may the people be condemned those who tortured (the believers) in ditches (4) Full of fire fed by faggots, (5) When they sat by it, (6) Witnessing what they had done to the believers! (7) and their revenge on them was only because they believed in Allah, the Almighty, the Praised, (8) To Him only belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is a 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) (But) for those who believe and do good works, for them there are Gardens underneath which rivers flow that is the Great Victory! (11) VERILY, thy Sustainer's grip is exceedingly strong! (12) Verily He! He it is who beginneth and repeateth it. (13) And He is the Forgiving, and the Loving. (14) Lord of the Throne of Glory, (15) the Executor of what He wills. (16) Has the story of the hordes (17) of the Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) Yet the unbelievers still belie, (19) And Allah, all unseen, surroundeth them. (20) Nay, but it is a glorious Koran, (21) (Inscribed) in a Tablet Preserved! (22)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
