بِسْمِ ٱللَّـهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the name of God, the Almighty,1 the Merciful.

وَٱلشَّمْسِ وَضُحَىٰهَا

912

1 By the sun and its morning brightness!

وَٱلْقَمَرِ إِذَا تَلَىٰهَا

2 And by the moon when it follows it!

وَٱلنَّهَارِ إِذَا جَلَّىٰهَا

3 And by the day when it reveals it!

وَٱلَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَىٰهَا

4 And by the night when it covers it!

وَٱلسَّمَآءِ وَمَا بَنَىٰهَا

5 And by the sky and Him that1 built it!

وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا طَحَىٰهَا

6 And by the earth and Him that1 extended it!

وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّىٰهَا

7 And by a soul and Him that1 fashioned it,

فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَىٰهَا

8 And inspired it with its immorality and its prudent fear!1

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّىٰهَا

9 He has succeeded who increased it1 in purity,2

وَقَدْ خَابَ مَن دَسَّىٰهَا

10 And he has failed who buried1 it2

كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ بِطَغْوَىٰهَآ

11 (Thamūd denied in its transgression

إِذِ ٱنۢبَعَثَ أَشْقَىٰهَا

12 When its most wretched1 was sent forth.

فَقَالَ لَهُمْ رَسُولُ ٱللَّـهِ نَاقَةَ ٱللَّـهِ وَسُقْيَـٰهَا

13 The messenger of God said to them: “The she-camel of God — let her drink.”1

فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَعَقَرُوهَا فَدَمْدَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُم بِذَنۢبِهِمْ فَسَوَّىٰهَا

14 Then they denied him,1 and hamstrung2 her;3 and their Lord destroyed them for their transgression,4 and He levelled them.)

وَلَا يَخَافُ عُقْبَـٰهَا

15 And1 fears not its final outcome.
