بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.
وَالشَّمْسِ وَضُحَاهَا (1)
[91:1] I swear by the sun and his broad light,
وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا تَلاهَا (2)
[91:2] and by the moon when she follows him,
وَالنَّهَارِ إِذَا جَلاَّهَا (3)
[91:3] and by the day when it shows his brightness,
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَاهَا (4)
[91:4] and by the night when it envelops him,
وَالسَّمَاءِ وَمَا بَنَاهَا (5)
[91:5] and by the sky, and the One who built it,
وَالأَرْضِ وَمَا طَحَاهَا (6)
[91:6] and by the earth, and the One who spread it,
وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّاهَا (7)
[91:7] and by the soul, and the One who made it well,
فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا (8)
[91:8] then inspired it with its (instincts of) evil and piety,
قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَنْ زَكَّاهَا (9)
[91:9] success is really attained by him who purifies it,
وَقَدْ خَابَ مَنْ دَسَّاهَا (10)
[91:10]and failure is really suffered by him who pollutes it.
كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ بِطَغْوَاهَا (11)
[91:11] (The People of) Thamūd denied the truth because of their transgression,
إِذْ انْبَعَثَ أَشْقَاهَا (12)
[91:12] when rose up the one who was most wretched of them.
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ نَاقَةَ اللَّهِ وَسُقْيَاهَا (13)
[91:13] So, the Messenger of Allah said to them, “Be careful of Allah‘s she-camel and her right to drink.”
فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَعَقَرُوهَا فَدَمْدَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ بِذَنْبِهِمْ فَسَوَّاهَا (14)
[91:14] But they rejected him and killed her, so their Lord sent eradicating torment upon them because of their sin, and made it equal for all.
وَلا يَخَافُ عُقْبَاهَا (15)
[91:15] And He has no fear of its consequence.
