George Sale rendition of Surah The Sun(ash-Shams)
91:1 By the sun, and its rising brightness;
91:2 by the moon, when she followeth him;
91:3 by the day, when it sheweth his splendor;
91:4 by the night, when it covereth him with darkness;
91:5 by the heaven, and Him who built it;
91:6 by the earth, and Him who spread it forth;
91:7 by the soul, and Him who completely formed it,
91:8 and inspired into the same its faculty of distinguishing, and power of choosing, wickedness and piety:
91:9 Now is he who hath purified the same, happy;
91:10 but he who hath corrupted the same, is miserable.
91:11 Thamud accused their prophet Saleh of imposture, through the excess of their wickedness:
91:12 When the wretch among them was sent to slay the camel;
91:13 and the apostle of God said unto them, let alone the camel of God; and hinder not her drinking.
91:14 But they charged him with imposture; and they slew her. Wherefore their Lord destroyed them, for their crime, and made their punishment equal unto them all:
91:15 And he feareth not the issue thereof.
