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 the moon as she follows in his wake, (2) And by oath of the day when it reveals it (3) And by oath of the night when it hides it (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) And the earth and Him Who spread it, (6) And the soul and Him Who made it perfect, (7) and inspired it to lewdness and godfearing! (8) Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (i.e. obeys and performs all that Allah ordered, by following the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds). (9) And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it. (10) The Thamud tribe rejected the truth because of their arrogance, (11) What time the greatest wretch of them rose up. (12) But the Messenger of Allah [Salih (Saleh)] said to them: "Be cautious! Fear the evil end. That is the she-camel of Allah! (Do not harm it) and bar it not from having its drink!" (13) But they called him a liar and hamstrung her. So God obliterated them for their crime, and (destroyed) all of them alike. (14) and He fears not the issue thereof. (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
