N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Sun(ash-Shams)
91:1 BY THE sun and his midday brightness;
91:2 by the moon, when she rises after him;
91:3 by the day, when it reveals his splendour;
91:4 by the night, when it veils him!
91:5 By the heaven and Him that built it;
91:6 by the earth and Him that spread it;
91:7 by the soul and Him that moulded it and inspired it
91:8 with knowledge of sin and piety:
91:9 blessed shall be he that has kept it pure,
91:10 and ruined he that has corrupted it!
91:11 In its presumptuous pride Thamūd denied their apostle
91:12 when its arch-sinner rose against him.
91:13 God‘s apostle said: ‘This is God‘s own she-camel. Let her drink.‘
91:14 They disbelieved him, and hamstrung her. And for their sin their Lord let loose His scourge upon them and razed their city to the ground.
91:15 He did not fear the consequences.
