91:1 By the Sun and his (glorious) splendour;
Waalshshamsi waduhaha
91:2 By the Moon as she follows him;
Waalqamari itha talaha
91:3 By the Day as it shows up (the Sun’s) glory;
Waalnnahari itha jallaha
91:4 By the Night as it conceals it;
Waallayli itha yaghshaha
91:5 By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure;
Waalssama-i wama banaha
91:6 By the Earth and its (wide) expanse:
Waal-ardi wama tahaha
91:7 By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it;
Wanafsin wama sawwaha
91:8 And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;-
Faalhamaha fujooraha wataqwaha
91:9 Truly he succeeds that purifies it,
Qad aflaha man zakkaha
91:10 And he fails that corrupts it!
Waqad khaba man dassaha
91:11 The Thamud (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing,
Kaththabat thamoodu bitaghwaha
91:12 Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety).
Ithi inbaAAatha ashqaha
91:13 But the Apostle of Allah said to them: “It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar her not from) having her drink!”
Faqala lahum rasoolu Allahi naqataAllahi wasuqyaha
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)!
Fakaththaboohu faAAaqaroohafadamdama AAalayhim rabbuhum bithanbihim fasawwaha
91:15 And for Him is no fear of its consequences.
Wala yakhafu AAuqbaha
