By the sun and its brightness;
by the moon, as she follows him;
by the day, which shows its splendor;
by the night, which draws a veil over it;
by the heaven and Him Who made it;
by the earth and Him Who spread it;
by the soul and Him Who perfected it
and inspired it with knowledge of what is wrong for it and what is right for it:
indeed successful will be the one who keeps it pure,
and indeed failure will be the one who corrupts it!
The people of Thamud denied the truth because of their arrogant transgression
when the most wicked man among them was deputed to kill the she-camel.
The Rasool of Allah warned them, saying: "This is Allah's She-camel do not molest her! Let her drink on her turn."
They disbelieved him and hamstrung her. Therefore, for that crime, their Rabb let loose His scourge upon them and leveled them to the ground.
For He (Allah) has no fear of its consequences.
