91. The Sun (Ash-Shams)
Revealed before the
Hijrah. This chapter has 15 verses.
In the Name of Allah,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1. By the Sun
and his (glorious) splendor;
2. By the
Moon as she follows him;
3. By the
Day as it shows up (the Sun's) glory;
4. By the
Night as it conceals it;
5. By the
Firmament and its (wonderful) structure;
6. By the
Earth and its (wide) expanse:
7. By the
Soul, and the proportion and order given to it;
8. And its
inspiration as to its wrong and its right;-
he succeeds that purifies it,
10. And he
fails that corrupts it!
Thamüd (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing,
Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety).
the Messenger of Allah said to them: "It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar
her not from) having her drink!"
they rejected him (as a false prophet), and they hamstrung her. So their Lord crushed
them for their sin and leveled them!
for Him is no fear of its consequences.
