The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)
22 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Sun (Al-Shams) before The Fig (Al-Teen)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
I swear by the mansions of the stars, 1 And by oath of the Promised Day. 2 By the witness and the witnessed! 3 That accursed are the men of the trench 4 the fire abounding in fuel, 5 while they themselves sat around it 6 to watch what they were doing to the believers, 7 whom they hate for no other reason than that they believe in God, the Almighty, the One to whom all praise is due, 8 God to whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and God is Witness over everything. 9 Surely (as for) those who persecute the believing men and the believing women, then do not repent, they shall have the chastisement of hell, and they shall have the chastisement of burning. 10 Verily those who believed and worked righteous works, theirs shall be Gardens whereunder the rivers flow; that is the supreme achievement. 11 The grip of your Lord is indeed severe, 12 It is He who originates and repeats. 13 And He alone is truly-forgiving, all-embracing in His love, 14 Owner of the Throne, the Exalted. 15 He does what He intends (or wills). 16 Has there reached you the story of the soldiers - 17 Of the Fir'awn and the Thamud? 18 The unbelievers are indeed engaged in denying it, calling it a lie, 19 Whereas Allah is, from behind them, Encompassing. 20 Aye! it is a Recitation glorious, 21 (Preserved) on the guarded tablet. 22
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
