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
CONSIDER the sun and its radiant brightness, (1) and by the moon as it follows it, (2) And the day when it shows it, (3) and by the night when it draws a veil over it, (4) By the heaven and That which built it (5) By the Earth and its (wide) expanse: (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 failed has he who seduces it. (10) (The tribe of) Thamud denied (the truth) in their rebellious pride, (11) when their arch-criminal rose up in rage. (12) But the Messenger of Allah said to them: "It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar her not from) having her drink!" (13) But they denied him, and they hamstrung her, so Allah doomed them for their sin and rased (their dwellings). (14) And He does not fear its coming behind (to take vengeance). (15)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
