The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
And by the sun and its brightness; (1) And [by] the moon when it follows it (2) and by the day as it displays the sun's glory, (3) by the night, when it envelops it! (4) By the heaven and Who built it, (5) and by the earth and how He spread it, (6) by the soul and how He formed it, (7) and imbued it with (the consciousness of) its evil and its piety: (8) Surely blissful is he who hath cleansed it, (9) and he who suppresses it will be ruined. (10) Thamud belied in their exorbitance. (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) Then they rejected him (as a false prophet), and they hamstrung her. So their Lord, on account of their crime, obliterated their traces and made them equal (in destruction, high and low)! (14) He dreadeth not the sequel (of events). (15)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
