91. Ash-Shams (The Sun)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[91.1] I swear by the sun and its brilliance,
[91.2] And the moon when it follows the sun,
[91.3] And the day when it shows it,
[91.4] And the night when it draws a veil over it,
[91.5] And the heaven and Him Who made it,
[91.6] And the earth and Him Who extended it,
[91.7] And the soul and Him Who made it perfect,
[91.8] Then He inspired it to understand what is right and wrong for it;
[91.9] He will indeed be successful who purifies it,
[91.10] And he will indeed fail who corrupts it.
[91.11] Samood gave the lie (to the truth) in their inordinacy,
[91.12] When the most unfortunate of them broke forth with
[91.13] So Allah's apostle said to them (Leave alone) Allah's she-camel, and (give) her (to) drink.
[91.14] But they called him a liar and slaughtered her, therefore their Lord crushed them for their sin and levelled them (with the ground).
[91.15] And He fears not its consequence.
