Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Mansions of the Stars, The Constellations(al-Buruj)
85:1 By heaven of the constellations,
85:2 by the promised day,
85:3 by the witness and the witnessed,
85:4 slain were the Men of the Pit,
85:5 the fire abounding in fuel,
85:6 when they were seated over it
85:7 and were themselves witnesses of what they did with the believers.
85:8 They took revenge on them only because they believed in the All-mighty, the Al-laudable,
85:9 God to whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and God is Witness over everything.
85:10 Those who persecute the believers, men and women, and then have not repented, there awaits them the chastisement of Gehenna, and there awaits them the chastisement of the burning.
85:11 Those who believe, and do righteous deeds, for them await gardens underneath which rivers flow; that is the great triumph.
85:12 Surely thy Lord's assault is terrible.
85:13 Surely it is He who originates, and brings again,
85:14 and He is the All-forgiving, the All-loving,
85:15 Lord of the Throne, the All-glorious,
85:16 Performer of what He desires.
85:17 Hast thou received the story of the hosts,
85:18 Pharaoh and Thamood?
85:19 Nay, but the unbelievers still cry lies,
85:20 and God is behind them, encompassing.
85:21 Nay, but it is a glorious Koran,
85:22 in a guarded tablet.
