The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By oath of the sun and its light (1) And the moon when she followeth him, (2) by the day when it brightens the earth, (3) By the Night as it conceals it; (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) and the earth and all its expanse! (6) And by Nafs (Adam or a person or a soul, etc.), and Him Who perfected him in proportion; (7) then inspired it to understand what was right and wrong for it. (8) To a happy state shall indeed attain he who causes this [self] to grow in purity, (9) And indeed failed is the one who covered it in sin. (10) Thamud belied in their exorbitance. (11) What time the greatest wretch of them rose up. (12) And the messenger of Allah said: It is the she-camel of Allah, so let her drink! (13) But they called him a liar and slaughtered her, therefore their Lord crushed them for their sin and levelled them (with the ground). (14) And He (Allah) feared not the consequences thereof. (15)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
