The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the Sun and his (glorious) splendour; (1) By the moon when it followeth it, (2) by the day when it brightens the earth, (3) And by oath of the night when it hides it (4) By the heaven and Who built it, (5) And the earth and Him Who extended it, (6) By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it; (7) and how it is imbued with moral failings as well as with consciousness of God! (8) He will indeed be successful who purifies it, (9) And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it. (10) TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud, (11) What time the greatest wretch of them rose up. (12) So Allah's apostle said to them (Leave alone) Allah's she-camel, and (give) her (to) drink. (13) But they gave him the lie, and cruelly slaughtered her - whereupon their Sustainer visited them with utter destruction for this their sin, destroying them all alike: (14) And He does not fear the consequence thereof. (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
