;

1 . By the sun and his brightness,

2 . And the moon when she followeth him,

3 . And the day when it revealeth him,

4 . And the night when it enshroudeth him,

5 . And the heaven and Him Who built it,

6 . And the earth and Him Who spread it,

7 . And a soul and Him Who perfected it

8 . And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is) right for it.

9 . He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow,

10 . And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it.

11 . (The tribe of) Thamud denied (the truth) in their rebellious pride,

12 . When the basest of them broke forth

13 . And the messenger of Allah said: It is the she-camel of Allah, so let her drink!

14 . But they denied him, and they hamstrung her, so Allah doomed them for their sin and rased (their dwellings).

15 . He dreadeth not the sequel (of events).
