Hamid S. Aziz - Sura: 85. Al-Buruj - The Stars

  1. By the heaven with its zodiacal signs!

  2. And by the Promised Day!

  3. And by the witnesses and the witnessed!

  4. Self-destroyed were the owners of the pit;

  5. The fire of which was supplied with abundant fuel,

  6. Behold, they sat over it,

  7. And they witnessed all they were doing against the believers.

  8. And they mistreated them only for their belief in Allah, the Mighty, the Praiseworthy,

  9. Whose are the kingdoms of the heavens and the earth; for Allah is Witness over all!

  10. Verily, those who persecute (or mislead or tempt) the believers, men and women, and then do not repent, for them is the penalty of Hell: they will have the torment of the burning Fire!

  11. Verily, those who believe and do right, for them are Gardens beneath which rivers flow: that is the great bliss!

  12. Verily, strong is the power of your Lord!

  13. Verily, it is He who creates and restores,

  14. And He is the Forgiving, the Loving,

  15. The Lord of the Glorious Throne;

  16. The Doer of what He will!

  17. Has there come to you the story of the Hosts

  18. Of Pharaoh and the Thamud?

  19. Yet the unbelievers persist in rejecting (the truth);

  20. But Allah is behind them - encompassing!

  21. Nay, this is a glorious Quran,

  22. (Inscribed) in a Preserved Tablet.
