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
By oath of the sun and its light (1) and by the moon as it follows it, (2) And by the day as it shows up (the sun's) brightness; (3) And the night when it enshroudeth him, (4) By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure; (5) by the earth and Who spread it, (6) by the soul and Who shaped it (7) And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is) right for it. (8) To a happy state shall indeed attain he who causes this [self] to grow in purity, (9) And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it. (10) TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud, (11) When the most wicked man among them went forth (to kill the she-camel). (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) Then they denied him and they killed it. So their Lord destroyed them because of their sin, and made them equal in destruction (i.e. all grades of people, rich and poor, strong and weak, etc.)! (14) And He fears not its consequence. (15)
Almighty God's Truth.
