John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Sun(ash-Shams)
91:1 BY the SUN and his noonday brightness!
91:2 By the Moon when she followeth him!
91:3 By the Day when it revealeth his glory!
91:4 By the Night when it enshroudeth him!
91:5 By the Heaven and Him who built it!
91:6 By the Earth and Him who spread it forth!
91:7 By a Soul and Him who balanced it,
91:8 And breathed into it its wickedness and its piety,
91:9 Blessed now is he who hath kept it pure,
91:10 And undone is he who hath corrupted it!
91:11 Themoud in his impiety rejected the message of the Lord,
91:12 When the greatest wretch among them rushed up: -
91:13 Said the Apostle of God to them, - "The Camel of God! let her drink."
91:14 But they treated him as an impostor and hamstrung her. So their Lord destroyed them for their crime, and visited all alike:
91:15 Nor feared he the issue.
