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
By the sky with its constellations, (1) And the promised day, (2) And the bearer of witness and those against whom the witness is borne. (3) Perish the fellows of the ditch, (4) Full of fire fed by faggots, (5) Lo! [With glee do] they contemplate that [fire,] (6) And they witnessed (all) that they were doing against the Believers. (7) whom they hated for no other reason than that they believed in God, the Almighty, the Praiseworthy, (8) Him unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is of all things the Witness. (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) For those who believe and do righteous deeds, will be Gardens; beneath which rivers flow: That is the great Salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires), (11) The grip of your Lord is severe indeed! (12) It is He who creates all things and causes them to return. (13) And He only is the Oft Forgiving, the Beloved of His bondmen. (14) Honorable Owner of the Throne, (15) He does what He intends (or wills). (16) HAS IT ever come within thy ken, the story of the [sinful] hosts (17) the armies of Pharaoh and Thamud? (18) And yet, they who are bent on denying the truth persist in giving it the lie: (19) And Allah is after them, has them surrounded. (20) But this is an honored Qur'an (21) [Inscribed] in a Preserved Slate. (22)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
