The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the sun and its brightness (1) and by the moon when she follows him, (2) by the day, when it displays it, (3) And the night when it enshroudeth him, (4) By the heaven and Who built it, (5) And by oath of the earth and by oath of Him Who spread it. (6) Consider the human self, and how it is formed in accordance with what it is meant to be, (7) And inspired in it the knowledge of its sins and its piety. (8) To a happy state shall indeed attain he who causes this [self] to grow in purity, (9) And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it. (10) The Thamud denied (the truth) in their perverseness (11) when the most wicked man among them rose up. (12) So the Noble Messenger of Allah said to them, “Stay away from the she camel of Allah, and from its turn 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) He did not fear the consequences. (15)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
