The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By oath of the sun and its light (1) and the moon as it reflects the sun! (2) and by the day as it reveals its glory (3) and the night as it veils it darkly! (4) by the heavens and that (Power) which established them, (5) and the earth and all its expanse! (6) By the soul and Him Who propertioned it, (7) And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is) right for it. (8) Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (i.e. obeys and performs all that Allah ordered, by following the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds). (9) And he fails that corrupts it! (10) Thamud belied in their exorbitance. (11) when the most wicked man among them rose up. (12) Then the messenger of God said to them, "This is God's she-camel. Let her 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) and He fears not the issue thereof. (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
