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 Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER the sky full of great constellations, (1) And the promised day, (2) By the witness and the witnessed! (3) the people of the pit were destroyed (4) Full of fire fed by faggots, (5) When they sat by it (6) And they, to what they were doing against the believers, were witnesses. (7) They took revenge on them only because they believed in the All-mighty, the Al-laudable, (8) Him unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is of all things the Witness. (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) Verily, those who believe and do righteous good deeds, for them will be Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise). That is the great success. (11) The grip of your Lord is severe indeed! (12) Verily He! He it is who beginneth and repeateth it. (13) and He is the Forgiving and Loving One. (14) Lord of the Throne of Glory, (15) the Executor of what He wills. (16) Has the story reached thee, of the forces- (17) Pharaoh and Thamood? (18) Nay, but those who disbelieve live in denial (19) While Allah encompasses them from behind. (20) In fact it (what they deny) is the Noble Qur’an. (21) written on a preserved Tablet. (22)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
