Did you notice?
91:1  By the sun and its brightness,
91:2  and the moon as it follows it,
91:3  and the day as it unveils it,
91:4  and the night as it conceals it!
91:5  And by heaven and ˹the One˺ Who built it,
91:6  and the earth and ˹the One˺ Who spread it!
91:7  And by the soul and ˹the One˺ Who fashioned it,
91:8  then with ˹the knowledge of˺ right and wrong inspired it!
91:9  Successful indeed is the one who purifies their soul,
91:10  and doomed is the one who corrupts it!
91:11  Thamûd rejected ˹the truth˺ out of arrogance,
91:12  when the most wicked of them was roused ˹to kill the she-camel˺.
91:13  But the messenger of Allah warned them, “˹Do not disturb˺ Allah’s camel and her ˹turn to˺ drink!”
91:14  Still they defied him and slaughtered her. So their Lord crushed them for their crime, levelling all to the ground.
91:15  He has no fear of consequences.
