In the name of Allah most Gracious most Merciful

Ash-Shams (The Sun)

By the sun and its brightness.

And [by] the moon when it follows it.

And [by] the day when it displays it.

And [by] the night when it covers [conceals] it.

And [by] the sky and He who constructed it.

And [by] the earth and He who spread it.

And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it.

And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness.

He has succeeded who purifies it.

And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].

Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression.

When the most wretched of them was sent forth.

And the messenger of Allah [Salih] said to them, "[Do not harm] the she-camel of Allah or [prevent her from] her drink."

But they denied him and hamstrung her. So their Lord brought down upon them destruction for their sin and made it equal [upon all of them].

And He does not fear the consequence thereof.
