The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the sun and his morning brightness (1) by the moon when it follows the sun, (2) and by the day as it displays the sun's glory, (3) by the night, when it envelops it! (4) And by the heaven and Him Who built it; (5) By the earth and Him Who spread it forth, (6) and by the soul and by Him Who perfectly proportioned it, (7) And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness, (8) He who purifies it will prosper, (9) And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it. (10) The Thamud denied (the truth) in their perverseness (11) When the most wicked among them stood up in defiance. (12) And the messenger of Allah [Salih] said to them, "[Do not harm] the she-camel of Allah or [prevent her from] her drink." (13) But they belied him, and hamstrung her. So their Lord crushed them for their sin and leveled it (their village). (14) And He does not fear its coming behind (to take vengeance). (15)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
