Sura Al-Burooj (The Big Stars)
Sheikh / Mohammad Ayyoob

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    85:1-3 By the heaven, holding mansions of the stars, and by the Promised Day. And by the witness and that whereto he bears testimony.

    85:4-7 (Self-) destroyed were the owners of the ditch of the fuel-fed fire, when they sat by it, and were themselves the witnesses of what they did to the believers.

    85:8-9 They had nothing against them except that they believed in God, the Mighty, the Owner of praise, Him to Whom belongs the supreme power of the heavens and the earth; and God is of all things the Witness.

    85:10 Lo! They who persecute believing men and believing women and repent not, theirs verily will be the punishment of Hell, and theirs the punishment of burning.

    85:11 Lo! Those who believe and do good works, theirs will be Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Success.

    85:12 Lo! The punishment of your Lord is stern.

    85:13-16 Lo! It is He Who produces, then reproduces, and He is the Forgiving, the Loving, Lord of the Throne of Glory, Doer of what He wills.

    85:17-18 Has there come to you the story of the hosts of Pharaoh and (the tribe of) Thamud?

    85:19-20 Nay, but those who disbelieve live in denial. And God, all unseen, surrounds them.

    85:21-22 Nay, but it is a glorious Quran on a guarded tablet.
