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 its morning brightness, (1) And the moon when it follows the sun, (2) And the day when it revealeth him, (3) And by oath of the night when it hides it (4) And by the heaven and Him Who built it; (5) and by the earth and by Him Who stretched it out; (6) and by the soul and by Him Who perfectly proportioned it, (7) and inspired it to lewdness and godfearing! (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 who confines it will surely come to grief. (10) The Thamud denied (the truth) in their perverseness (11) When the basest of them broke forth (12) Then the apostle of Allah said unto them: beware of the she-camel of Allah and her drink. (13) But they rejected his statement as a lie and hamstrung the she-camel. For that crime their Lord rumbled down upon them, utterly razing them to the ground. (14) And He fears not its consequence. (15)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
