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
I CALL TO witness the sun and his early morning splendour, (1) And by the moon as it follows it (the sun); (2) And the day when it shows it, (3) and the night as it veils it darkly! (4) By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure; (5) and by the earth and That which extended it! (6) And by oath of the soul and by oath of Him Who made it proper. (7) And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness, (8) He will indeed be successful who purifies it, (9) And miserable is he who hath buried it. (10) TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud, (11) when the most wretched of them uprose, (12) So Allah's apostle said to them (Leave alone) Allah's she-camel, and (give) her (to) drink. (13) But they belied him, and hamstrung her. So their Lord crushed them for their sin and leveled it (their village). (14) and He fears not the issue thereof. (15)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
