By the sun and its brightness
And [by] the moon when it follows it
And [by] the day when it displays it
And [by] the night when it covers it
And [by] the heaven and He who constructed it
And [by] the earth and He who spread it *Isaiah 44:24
And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it
And inspired it [with] its wickedness and its fear [of God],
He has succeeded who purifies it,
And he has failed who buries it [with corruption].
Thamud denied [their prophet] by reason of their transgression,
When the most wretched of them was sent forth.
And the messenger of God [Salih] said to them, "[Do not harm] the she-camel of God or [prevent her from] her drink."
But they denied him and hamstrung her. So their Lord brought down upon them destruction for their sin and made it equal [upon all of them].
And He does not fear the consequence thereof.
