Maududi rendition of Surah The Sun(ash-Shams)
91:1 By the sun and its heat and brightness,
91:2 and by the moon as it follows it;
91:3 and by the day as it displays the sun´s glory,
91:4 and by the night as it envelopes the sun;
91:5 and by the sky and by Him Who made it;
91:6 and by the earth and by Him Who stretched it out;
91:7 and by the soul and by Him Who perfectly proportioned it,
91:8 and imbued it with (the consciousness of) its evil and its piety:
91:9 He who purifies it will prosper,
91:10 and he who suppresses it will be ruined.
91:11 In their presumptuous insolence the Thamud called the Truth a lie
91:12 when their arch-criminal rose up in rage.
91:13 Then Allah´s Messenger warned them: "Hands off the she-camel and her drink!"
91:14 But they rejected his statement as a lie and hamstrung the she-camel. For that crime their Lord rumbled down upon them, utterly razing them to the ground.
91:15 He has no fear of its sequel.
