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
I swear by the sun and its brilliance, (1) And the moon when it follows the sun, (2) And the day when it shows it, (3) by the night, when it envelops it! (4) And the heaven and Him Who built it, (5) and by the earth and how He spread it, (6) By the soul, and That which shaped it (7) And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness, (8) He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow, (9) and he who corrupts it is sure to fail. (10) Samood gave the lie (to the truth) in their inordinacy, (11) Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety). (12) Then the apostle of Allah said unto them: beware of the she-camel of Allah and 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) God is not afraid of the result of what He had decreed. (15)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
