In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most 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 Apostle 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.
