In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

By the sun and his brightness

By the moon that follows him

And the day when it reveals him

And the Night that enshrouds him

And the heaven and He who built it

And the Earth and He who spread it

And a soul and He who perfected it

And inspired it for what is wrong with it and right for it

He is indeed successful who causes it grow

And he is indeed a failure who stuns it

(The Tribe of) Thamud denied (the truth), in their rebellious pride

When the lowest of them broke out

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

But they denied him, and they hamstrung her. So Allah doomed them for their sin and levelled (their dwellings)

He dreds not the sequel (of events)


This early Makkan Surah revears Allah creation and points out the need of man's spiritual responsibility and the consequences of those who do not fear the hereafter
