91. The Sun | ash-Shams

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[91:1] I swear by the sun and his broad light,
[91:2] and by the moon when she follows him,
[91:3] and by the day when it shows his brightness,
[91:4] and by the night when it envelops him,
[91:5] and by the sky, and the One who built it,
[91:6] and by the earth, and the One who spread it,
[91:7] and by the soul, and the One who made it well,
[91:8] then inspired it with its (instincts of) evil and piety,
[91:9] success is really attained by him who purifies it,
[91:10] and failure is really suffered by him who polLutes it.
[91:11] (The People of) Thamud denied the truth because of their transgression,
[91:12] when rose up the one who was most wretched of them.
[91:13] So, the Messenger of Allah said to them, .Be careful of Allah‘s she-camel and her right to drink..
[91:14] But they rejected him and killed her, so their Lord sent eradicating torment upon them because of their sin, and made it equal for all.
[91:15] And He has no fear of its consequence.
