91

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

91:1. By the Sun and his (glorious) splendour;

91:2. By the Moon as she follows him;

91:3. By the Day as it shows up (the Sun's) glory;

91:4. By the Night as it conceals it;

91:5. By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure;

91:6. By the Earth and its (wide) expanse:

91:7. By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it;

91:8. And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;-

91:9. Truly he succeeds that purifies it,

91:10. And he fails that corrupts it!

91:11. The Thamud (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing,

91:12. Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety).

91:13. But the Messenger of God said to them: "It is a She-camel of God! And (bar her not from) having her drink!"

91:14. Then they rejected him (as a false prophet), and they hamstrung her. So their Lord, on account of their crime, obliterated their traces and made them equal (in destruction, high and low)!

91:15. And for Him is no fear of its consequences.
