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
CONSIDER the sun and its radiant brightness, (1) by the moon when it follows the sun, (2) and by the day when it displays him (3) The night when it covers him over, (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) by the earth and Who spread it, (6) And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it (7) and imbued it with (the consciousness of) its evil and its piety: (8) He will indeed be successful who purifies it, (9) and failed has he who seduces it. (10) The Thamud tribe rejected the truth because of their arrogance, (11) When the most wicked man among them went forth (to kill the she-camel). (12) And the apostle of God had to tell them: "This is God's she-camel, let her drink." (13) But they called him a liar and slaughtered her, therefore their Lord crushed them for their sin and levelled them (with the ground). (14) And He fears not its consequence. (15)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
