بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ وَالشَّمسِ وَضُحىٰها(1)
I CALL TO witness the sun and his early morning splendour,(1)
وَالقَمَرِ إِذا تَلىٰها(2)
And the moon as she follows in his wake,(2)
وَالنَّهارِ إِذا جَلّىٰها(3)
The day when it reveals his radiance,(3)
وَالَّيلِ إِذا يَغشىٰها(4)
The night when it covers him over,(4)
وَالسَّماءِ وَما بَنىٰها(5)
The heavens and its architecture,(5)
وَالأَرضِ وَما طَحىٰها(6)
The earth and its spreading out,(6)
وَنَفسٍ وَما سَوّىٰها(7)
The soul and how it was integrated(7)
فَأَلهَمَها فُجورَها وَتَقوىٰها(8)
And given the faculty of knowing what is disruptive and what is intrinsic to it.(8)
قَد أَفلَحَ مَن زَكّىٰها(9)
He who nourishes it will surely be successful,(9)
وَقَد خابَ مَن دَسّىٰها(10)
And he who confines it will surely come to grief.(10)
كَذَّبَت ثَمودُ بِطَغوىٰها(11)
The Thamud denied (the truth) in their perverseness(11)
إِذِ انبَعَثَ أَشقىٰها(12)
When among them the great wretch arose,(12)
فَقالَ لَهُم رَسولُ اللَّهِ ناقَةَ اللَّهِ وَسُقيٰها(13)
And the apostle of God had to tell them: "This is God's she-camel, let her drink."(13)
فَكَذَّبوهُ فَعَقَروها فَدَمدَمَ عَلَيهِم رَبُّهُم بِذَنبِهِم فَسَوّىٰها(14)
But they called him a liar and hamstrung her. So God obliterated them for their crime, and (destroyed) all of them alike.(14)
وَلا يَخافُ عُقبٰها(15)
He does not fear the consequence.(15)
