Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Sun(ash-Shams)
91:1 By the sun and his morning brightness,
91:2 by the moon as she follows him,
91:3 by the day, which reveals his splendour,
91:4 by the night, which veils him.
91:5 By the heaven and its construction,
91:6 by the earth and its spreading,
91:7 by the soul and its mouldin
91:8 and inspiration with knowledge of wickedness and righteousness.
91:9 Successful is the one who keeps it pure,
91:10 and ruined is the one who corrupts it.
91:11 In their overweening arrogance the people of ThamÅ«d denied the truth,
91:12 when their most hapless wretch broke forth.
91:13 God's Messenger said to them: 'It is a she-camel belonging to God, so let her have her drink.'
91:14 But they rejected him, and cruelly slaughtered her. For this their sin their Lord let loose His scourge upon them, and razed their city to the ground.
91:15 He does not fear what may follow.
