(91) As-Shams: The Sun

سورة الشمس


بِـسْـمِ اللهِ الرَّحـْمـنِ الرَّحِـيـمِِ
In the Name of Allah The All Merciful, The Most Merciful.

وَالشَّمْسِ وَضُحَاهَا
1. By the sun and its mid-morning,

وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا تَلَاهَا
2. And the moon as it follows it,

وَالنَّهَارِ إِذَا جَلَّاهَا
3. And the morning as it unveils it,

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَاهَا
4. And the night as it covers it.

وَالسَّمَاء وَمَا بَنَاهَا
5. By the sky and how He built it.

وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا طَحَاهَا
6. By the earth and how He unfurled it.

وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّاهَا
7. By (the) soul and how He leveled it,

فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا
8. Then He imbued its immorality and its veneration.

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا
9. He has truly prospered, whoever ameliorated it. 

وَقَدْ خَابَ مَن دَسَّاهَا
10. And he has truly failed, whoever stashed it.

كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ بِطَغْوَاهَا
11. Thamud belied with its tyranny,

إِذِ انبَعَثَ أَشْقَاهَا
12. For he was dispatched, its most wretched.

فَقَالَ لَهُمْ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ نَاقَةَ اللَّهِ وَسُقْيَاهَا
13. So he said to them, the messenger of Allah, "Allah's she-camel and her drink!"

فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَعَقَرُوهَا فَدَمْدَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُم بِذَنبِهِمْ فَسَوَّاهَا
14. So they belied him, then they wounded her; so their Lord squashed them with their guilt, then He leveled it.

وَلَا يَخَافُ عُقْبَاهَا
15. And He fears not its outcome.
