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
By the Sun and his (glorious) splendour; (1) and by the moon as it follows it, (2) By the day when it glorifieth it. (3) by the night, when it envelops it! (4) And the heaven and Him Who built it, (5) And [by] the earth and He who spread it (6) And by Nafs (Adam or a person or a soul, etc.), and Him Who perfected him in proportion; (7) And inspired it with the wickedness thereof and the piety thereof, (8) Prosperous is he who purifies it, (9) and he who corrupts it is sure to fail. (10) Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression, (11) When the most wicked among them stood up in defiance. (12) Then Allah's Messenger warned them: “Hands off the she-camel and her drink!” (13) But they cried him lies, and hamstrung her, so their Lord crushed them for their sin, and leveled them: (14) And He fears not its consequence. (15)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
