Ash-Shams - The Sun - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 91:1 By the Sun and his (glorious) splendour;

  3. 91:2 By the Moon as she follows him;

  4. 91:3 By the Day as it shows up (the Sun's) glory;

  5. 91:4 By the Night as it conceals it;

  6. 91:5 By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure;

  7. 91:6 By the Earth and its (wide) expanse:

  8. 91:7 By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it;

  9. 91:8 And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;-

  10. 91:9 Truly he succeeds that purifies it,

  11. 91:10 And he fails that corrupts it!

  12. 91:11 The Thamud (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing,

  13. 91:12 Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety).

  14. 91:13 But the Apostle of Allah said to them: "It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar her not from) having her drink!"

  15. 91:14 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)!

  16. 91:15 And for Him is no fear of its consequences.
