AL BURUJ (The Constellations)
In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful
1 By the sky, the signs of the Zodiac;
2 By the promised day;
3 By one that witnesses, and the subject of the witness;
4 Woe to the makers of the pit,
5 Fire supplied with fuel:
6 Behold! They sat over against it,
7 And they witnessed what they were doing against the believers.
8 And they ill-treated them for no other reason than that they believed in Allah, exalted in power, worthy of all praise!
9 Him to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is witness to all things.
10 Those who persecute the believers, men and women, and do not turn in repentance, will have the penalty of hell: they will have the penalty of the burning fire.
11 For those who believe and do righteous deeds, will be gardens beneath which rivers flow: that is the great salvation.
12 Truly strong is the grip of your Lord.
13 It is he who creates from the very beginning, and he can restore.
14 And he is the oft-forgiving, full of loving kindness,
15 Lord of the throne of glory,
16 Doer of all that he intends.
17 Has the story reached you, of the forces
18 Of Firaun and the Thamud?
19 And yet the unbelievers rejected!
20 But Allah encompasses them from behind!
21 No, this is a glorious Quran,
22 Preserved on a tablet!
