The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
CONSIDER the sun and its radiant brightness, (1) And the moon when she followeth him, (2) By the Day as it shows up (the Sun's) glory; (3) and by the night as it envelopes the sun; (4) By the heaven and Him Who builded it, (5) and by the earth and That which extended it! (6) and by the soul and by Him Who perfectly proportioned it, (7) And inspired it with the wickedness thereof and the piety thereof, (8) He who purifies it will indeed be successful, (9) And indeed failed is the one who covered it in sin. (10) The Thamud tribe rejected the truth because of their arrogance, (11) When the basest of them broke forth (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 called him a liar and hamstrung her. So God obliterated them for their crime, and (destroyed) all of them alike. (14) He does not fear the consequence. (15)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
