In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.  
By the Sun and his (glorious) splendor; 1
By the Moon as she follows him; 2
By the Day as it shows up (the Sun's) glory; 3
By the Night as it conceals it; 4
By the Firmament and its (wonderful) structure; 5
By the Earth and its (wide) expanse: 6
By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it; 7
And its inspiration as to its wrong and its right;- 8
Truly he succeeds that purifies it, 9
And he fails that corrupts it! 10
The Thamüd (people) rejected (their prophet) through their inordinate wrong-doing, 11
Behold, the most wicked man among them was deputed (for impiety). 12
But the Messenger of Allah said to them: "It is a She-camel of Allah! And (bar her not from) having her drink!" 13
Then they rejected him (as a false prophet), and they hamstrung her. So their Lord crushed them for their sin and leveled them! 14
And for Him is no fear of its consequences. 15
