IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE MOST GRACIOUS, THE DISPENSER OF GRACE:
Success depends on keeping the soul pure and failure depends on corrupting it
1 CONSIDER the sun and its radiant brightness,
2 and the moon as it reflects the sun!1
3 Consider the day as it reveals the world,2
4 and the night as it veils it darkly!
5 Consider the sky and its wondrous make,3
6 and the earth and all its expanse!
7 Consider the human self,4 and how it is formed in accordance with what it is meant to be,5
8 and how it is imbued with moral failings as well as with consciousness of God!6
9 To a happy state shall indeed attain he who causes this [self] to grow in purity,
10 and truly lost is he who buries it [in darkness].
People of Thamud who corrupted, were levelled to the ground
11 TO [THIS] TRUTH gave the lie, in their overweening arrogance, [the tribe of] Thamud,7
12 when that most hapless wretch from among them rushed forward [to commit his evil deed],
13 although God's apostle had told them, "It is a she-camel belonging to God, so let her drink [and do her no harm]!"8
14 But they gave him the lie, and cruelly slaughtered her9 - whereupon their Sustainer visited them with utter destruction for this their sin, destroying them all alike:
15 for none [of them] had any fear of what might befall them.10
