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 CALL TO witness the sun and his early morning splendour, (1) and by the moon as it follows it; (2) and by the day as it displays the sun's glory, (3) By the Night as it conceals it; (4) By the heaven and Who built it, (5) and by the earth and That which extended it! (6) and by the soul and that (Power) which designed it (7) And inspired it with the wickedness thereof and the piety thereof, (8) He who purifies it will indeed be successful, (9) And he has failed who instills it [with corruption]. (10) In their presumptuous insolence the Thamud called the Truth a lie (11) Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety). (12) Then Allah's Messenger warned them: “Hands off the she-camel and her drink!” (13) In response they belied him, and hamstrung the she camel so Allah put ruin over them because of their sins and flattened their dwellings. (14) He dreadeth not the sequel (of events). (15)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
End of Surah: The Sun (Al-Shams). Sent down in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
