The Sun (Al-Shams)
15 verses, revealed in Mecca after Destiny (Al-Qadr) before The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER the sun and its radiant brightness, (1) and by the moon when she follows him, (2) And the day when it shows it, (3) By the Night as it conceals it; (4) Consider the sky and its wondrous make, (5) And [by] the earth and He who spread it (6) Consider the human self, and how it is formed in accordance with what it is meant to be, (7) and how it is imbued with moral failings as well as with consciousness of God! (8) Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (i.e. obeys and performs all that Allah ordered, by following the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds). (9) And miserable is he who hath buried it. (10) (The tribe of) Thamud denied (the truth) in their rebellious pride, (11) when the most corrupt of them incited them (to commit evil). (12) Then Allah's Messenger warned them: “Hands off the she-camel and her drink!” (13) But they belied him, and hamstrung her. So their Lord crushed them for their sin and leveled it (their village). (14) He does not fear the result (of their destruction). (15)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
