Surah 91. Surah al Shams

Surah 91. Surah al  Shams (The Sun)

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  1. By the sun and its illumination,
  2. By the moon as it follows it (the sun),
  3. By the day as it reveals it,
  4. By the night as it shrouds it,
  5. By the heavens and what was created in them,
  6. By the earth and what was spread out therein,
  7. By the soul and what perfection was bestowed upon it,
  8. By its awareness of its defects and its awareness of the Divine,
  9. Verily, he attains felicity who purifies it!
  10. And verily, he is lost who corrupts it!
  11. The Thamud rejected and transgressed
  12. When the wretched man stood up,
  13. And the Messenger of Allah said to them:
    “(This is the) she-camel ordained for Allah, so let her drink.”
  14. But they rejected him (the Messenger) and they hamstrung her,
    So their Rabb brought destruction upon them for their sin,
    Then utterly destroyed them—
  15. And He is not fearful of its consequences!
