The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By the sun and its noon-time brightness, (1) and by the moon as it follows it; (2) by the day, when it displays it, (3) by the night, when it envelops it! (4) And by the heaven and Him Who built it; (5) and by the earth and That which extended it! (6) by the soul and Who shaped it (7) and imbued it with (the consciousness of) its evil and its piety: (8) He who purifies it will indeed be successful, (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) 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 the most wretched of them was sent 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) But they gave him the lie, and hamstrung the she-camel. So their Lord destroyed them for their crime and razed their city to the ground. (14) He has no fear of its sequel. (15)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
