THE SUN, CHAPTER NO. 091

In the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
091.001 By the Sun and his (glorious) splendour;

091.002 By the Moon as she follows him;

091.003 By the Day as it shows up (the Sunís) glory;

091.004 By the Night as it conceals it;

091.005 By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure;

091.006 By the Earth and its (wide) expanse:

091.007 By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it;

091.008 And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;-

091.009 Truly he succeeds that purifies it,

091.010 And he fails that corrupts it!

091.011 The Thamud (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing,

091.012 Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety).

091.013 But the Apostle of Allah said to them: "It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar her not from) having her drink!"

091.014 Then they rejected him (as a false prophet), and they hamstrung her. So their Lord, on account of their crime, obliterated their traces and made them equal (in destruction, high and low)!

091.015 And for Him is no fear of its consequences.
