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
I swear by the sun and its brilliance, (1) And the moon when it follows the sun, (2) The day when it reveals his radiance, (3) And the night when it draws a veil over it, (4) By the heaven and That which built it (5) and by the earth and That which extended it! (6) And the soul and Him Who made it perfect, (7) and inspired it with knowledge of evil and piety, (8) To a happy state shall indeed attain he who causes this [self] to grow in purity, (9) and truly lost is he who buries it [in darkness]. (10) Thamud (people) denied (their Prophet) through their transgression (by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism, and by following polytheism, and by committing every kind of sin). (11) when their arch-criminal rose up in rage. (12) And the apostle of God had to tell them: "This is God's she-camel, let her drink." (13) Then they denied him and they killed it. So their Lord destroyed them because of their sin, and made them equal in destruction (i.e. all grades of people, rich and poor, strong and weak, etc.)! (14) He did not fear the consequences. (15)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
