Chapter 85:
Al-Buruj — The Stars:

Revealed at Makkah: 22 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

85:1 By the heaven full of stars!

85:2 And the Promised day!

85:3 And the bearer of witness and that to which witness is borne!

85:4 Destruction overtake the companions of the trench! —

85:5 The fire fed with fuel —

85:6 When they sit by it,

85:7 And they are witnesses of what they do with the believers.

85:8 And they punished them for naught but that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Praised,

85:9 Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Witness of all things.

85:10 Those who persecute believing men and believing women, then repent not, theirs is the chastisement of hell, and theirs the chastisement of burning.

85:11 Those who believe and do good, theirs are Gardens wherein flow rivers. That is the great achievement.

85:12 Surely the grip of thy Lord is severe.

85:13 Surely He it is Who creates first and reproduces;

85:14 And He is the Forgiving, the Loving,

85:15 Lord of the Throne of Power, the Glorious,

85:16 Doer of what He intends.

85:17 Has not there come to thee the story of the hosts,

85:18 Of Pharaoh and Thamud?

85:19 Nay, those who disbelieve give the lie —

85:20 And Allah encompasses them on all sides.

85:21 Nay, it is a glorious Quran,

85:22 In a guarded tablet.
