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 Merciful, the Compassionate
By the heaven with its impregnable castles; (1) by the Promised Day, (2) by the witness and the witnessed, (3) (Self-)destroyed were the owners of the ditch (4) Fire supplied (abundantly) with fuel, (5) Lo! [With glee do] they contemplate that [fire,] (6) and were witnessing what they did to the believers. (7) And they persecuted them for naught save that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Praiseworthy (8) and the One to whom belongs the heavens and the earth. God is the Witness of all things. (9) Those who persecuted the believing men and women and never repented, there is for them the punishment of Gehenna (Hell), and for them the punishment of the burning. (10) Surely (as for) those who believe and do good, they shall have gardens beneath which rivers flow, that is the great achievement. (11) Indeed, the seizing of your Lord is severe. (12) He it is Who creates for the first time and He it is Who will create again, (13) And He is the Forgiving, the Affectionate, (14) Lord of the Arsh, the Glorious, (15) and the Most Effective in His decision. (16) HAS IT ever come within thy ken, the story of the [sinful] hosts (17) Of the Fir'awn and the Thamud? (18) Nay! The disbelievers (persisted) in denying (Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his Message of Islamic Monotheism). (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) Nay! it is a glorious Quran, (21) inscribed on a well-guarded Tablet. (22)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
