91:1  I call to witness the sun and its light and heat
91:2  And the moon when it borrows light from it (- the sun)
91:3  And the day when it reveals its (- the sun's) glory
91:4  And the night when it draws a veil over it
91:5  And the heaven and That (Great Omnifice Divinity) Who made it
91:6  And the earth and That (Great Being) Who expanded it
91:7  And the (human) soul and That (Mighty Lord) Who made it perfect
91:8  Then He revealed to it (- the soul, the ways of) its evil and its righteousness
91:9  (All these are cited to witness that) one who purifies it (- his soul), certainly succeeds
91:10  And he indeed is ruined who corrupts it
91:11  (The tribe of) Thamud belied (Salih,) because of their rebelliousness
91:12  (It was) when the wretched-most among them arose
91:13  And Allah's Messenger said to them, `(Do not interfere with) the she-camel (- a symbol appointed by the command) of Allah and (do not obstruct) her (from) watering.
91:14  But they belied (and disobeyed) him and hamstrung her. Then their Lord destroyed them completely for their sin, so much so that He leveled them (all to the ground)
91:15  And He did not care at all for their end (as to what an utterly miserable state they were reduced)
