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
CONSIDER the sky full of great constellations, (1) and [then bethink thyself of] the promised Day, (2) And by the witnessing day (i.e. Friday), and by the witnessed day [i.e. the day of 'Arafat (Hajj) the ninth of Dhul-Hijjah]; (3) Accursed be the People of the Ditch! (4) the makers of the fuel-stoked fire! (5) As they sat around it (6) And to that which they did to the believers were witnesses. (7) They had naught against them save that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Owner of Praise, (8) To Him only belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is a Witness over all things. (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) Indeed those who believed and did good deeds for them are Gardens beneath which rivers flow; this is the great success. (11) The grip of your Lord is severe indeed! (12) Lo! He it is Who produceth, then reproduceth, (13) And He is the Forgiving, the Loving, (14) the Lord of the Glorious Throne, (15) and the Most Effective in His decision. (16) Hath there come unto thee the story of the hosts (17) (The armies of) Firaun and the tribe of Thamud. (18) But they who disbelieve are in [persistent] denial, (19) although Allah surrounds them. (20) In fact it (what they deny) is the Noble Qur’an. (21) [Inscribed] in a Preserved Slate. (22)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
