The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
I CALL TO witness the sun and his early morning splendour, (1) And by oath of the moon when it follows the sun (2) and by the day as it reveals its glory (3) and the night as it veils it darkly! (4) and by the sky and by Him Who made it; (5) and by the earth and how He spread it, (6) By the soul, and That which shaped it (7) and how it is imbued with moral failings as well as with consciousness of God! (8) He who purifies it will prosper, (9) And indeed he fails who corrupts his ownself (i.e. disobeys what Allah has ordered by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism or by following polytheism, etc. or by doing every kind of evil wicked deeds). (10) The Thamud (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing, (11) when the most wicked of them broke forth, (12) The Messenger of God told them, "This is a she-camel, belonging to God. Do not deprive her of her share of water". (13) In response they belied him, and hamstrung the she camel so Allah put ruin over them because of their sins and flattened their dwellings. (14) And He does not fear the consequence thereof. (15)
Almighty God's Truth.
