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 [by] the moon when it follows it (2) and by the day as it displays the sun's glory, (3) by the night when it covers the earth with darkness, (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) by the earth and that (Power) which spread it out (6) The soul and how it was integrated (7) And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;- (8) He has succeeded who purifies it, (9) and failed has he who seduces it. (10) Thamud (people) denied (their Prophet) through their transgression (by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism, and by following polytheism, and by committing every kind of sin). (11) When the most wicked among them stood up in defiance. (12) the Messenger of Allah said to them: '(This is) the shecamel of Allah, let her drink' (13) Then they belied him and they hamstrung her; wherefore their Lord overwhelmed them for their crime, and made it equal. (14) And He fears not its consequence. (15)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
