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
I swear by the sun and its brilliance, 1 And by oath of the moon when it follows the sun 2 by the day when it brightens the earth, 3 and by the night as it envelopes the sun; 4 By the heaven and That which built it 5 by the earth and Who spread it, 6 By the soul, and That which shaped it 7 Then He inspired it to understand what is right and wrong for it; 8 Prosperous is he who purifies it, 9 and he who corrupts it is sure to fail. 10 Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression, 11 What time the greatest wretch of them rose up. 12 Then Allah's Messenger warned them: “Hands off the she-camel and her drink!” 13 But they gave him the lie, and hamstrung the she-camel. So their Lord destroyed them for their crime and razed their city to the ground. 14 And He does not fear its coming behind (to take vengeance). 15
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
