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 the sun and its noon-time brightness, (1) and by the moon when she follows him, (2) Consider the day as it reveals the world, (3) And the night when it draws a veil over it, (4) By the heaven and Him Who builded it, (5) By the earth and Him Who spread it forth, (6) And the soul and Him Who made it perfect, (7) and how it is imbued with moral failings as well as with consciousness of God! (8) He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow, (9) And he who confines it will surely come to grief. (10) In their presumptuous insolence the Thamud called the Truth a lie (11) when their arch-criminal rose up in rage. (12) Then the apostle of Allah said unto them: beware of the she-camel of Allah and her drink. (13) But they called him a liar and hamstrung her. So God obliterated them for their crime, and (destroyed) all of them alike. (14) and He fears not the issue thereof. (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
