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
I CALL TO witness the sun and his early morning splendour, 1 And the moon when it follows the sun, 2 By the Day as it shows up (the Sun's) glory; 3 And by the night as it conceals it (the sun); 4 And by the heaven and Him Who built it; 5 And the earth and Him Who extended it, 6 By the soul and Him Who propertioned it, 7 And given the faculty of knowing what is disruptive and what is intrinsic to it. 8 He who purifies it will prosper, 9 and failed is he who buried it! 10 Thamood belied in their pride 11 When the most wicked among them stood up in defiance. 12 But the Messenger of Allah [Salih (Saleh)] said to them: "Be cautious! Fear the evil end. That is the she-camel of Allah! (Do not harm it) and bar it not from having its drink!" 13 But they rejected his statement as a lie and hamstrung the she-camel. For that crime their Lord rumbled down upon them, utterly razing them to the ground. 14 He does not fear the result (of their destruction). 15
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
