Quran Chapter 91


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.
