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 adorned with big stars. (1) by the Promised Day, (2) And the bearer of witness and those against whom the witness is borne. (3) may the people be condemned those who tortured (the believers) in ditches (4) by a burning fire (5) Lo! [With glee do] they contemplate that [fire,] (6) And they themselves are witnesses to what they were doing to the Muslims! (7) And what did they dislike from the Muslims, except that the Muslims accepted faith in Allah the Most Honourable, the Most Praiseworthy? (8) Him unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is of all things the Witness. (9) Surely (as for) those who persecute the believing men and the believing women, then do not repent, they shall have the chastisement of hell, and they shall have the chastisement of burning. (10) [But,] verily, they who attain to faith and do righteous deeds shall [in the life to come] have gardens through which running waters flow - that triumph most great! (11) The grip of your Lord is severe indeed! (12) He it is Who creates for the first time and He it is Who will create again, (13) and He is the All-forgiving, the All-loving, (14) Honorable Owner of the Throne, (15) The Doer of whatever He wants. (16) Hath there come unto thee the story of the hosts (17) Of Firon and Samood? (18) Nay, but the unbelievers still cry lies, (19) Allah encompasses them all from behind. (20) It is indeed a glorious Quran, (21) (Inscribed) in a Tablet Preserved! (22)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
