The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By the sun and its midmorning, (1) By the moon when it followeth it, (2) by the day when it brightens the earth, (3) and by the night when it draws a veil over it, (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) and the earth and all its expanse! (6) And by oath of the soul and by oath of Him Who made it proper. (7) Then He inspired it to understand what is right and wrong for it; (8) He who nourishes it will surely be successful, (9) And he who confines it will surely come to grief. (10) TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud, (11) Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety). (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) and He fears not the issue thereof. (15)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
