Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Mansions of the Stars, The Constellations(al-Buruj)
85:1 By the heaven with its constellations,
85:2 by the promised day,
85:3 by the witness and that which is witnessed,
85:4 slain be the people of the pit
85:5 of the fire abounding in fuel,
85:6 when they sat around it,
85:7 watching what they did to the believers.
85:8 They took vengeance on them for no reason other than that they believed in God, the Almighty, to whom all praise is due,
85:9 to whom the dominion of the heavens and the earth belongs. But God is witness of all things
85:10 Those who persecute the believers, men and women, and do not repent shall suffer the punishment of hell, and suffer the punishment of burning.
85:11 But those who believe and do righteous deeds shall have gardens through which running waters flow; that is the supreme triumph.
85:12 Stern indeed is your Lord's vengeance.
85:13 It is He who brings into being, and then restores to life.
85:14 He is All-Forgiving, Compassionate,
85:15 Lord of the Throne, Glorious,
85:16 He does whatever He wills.
85:17 Have you heard the story of the hosts,
85:18 of Pharaoh and ThamÅ«d?
85:19 Yet the unbelievers persist in their denial [of the truth].
85:20 But God surrounds them all.
85:21 This is indeed a glorious Qur'ān,
85:22 inscribed on an imperishable tablet.
