بِسۡمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
وَنَفۡسٖ وَمَا سَوَّىٰهَا7 7
By the soul (of a man) and Him Who created man in the most proportionate form.
فَأَلۡهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقۡوَىٰهَا8 8
Then He (Allah) showed him what the wrong path is and what the right path is.
قَدۡ أَفۡلَحَ مَن زَكَّىٰهَا9 9
He who purifies himself (by obeying Allah) is, indeed, success-ful.
كَذَّبَتۡ ثَمُودُ بِطَغۡوَىٰهَآ11 11
The Thamud (people) denied (their Prophet) by (their) trans-gression
إِذِ ٱنۢبَعَثَ أَشۡقَىٰهَا12 12
When the cruelest among them came forward (with the intention to kill the she-camel).
فَقَالَ لَهُمۡ رَسُولُ ٱللَّهِ نَاقَةَ ٱللَّهِ وَسُقۡيَٰهَا13 13
Then the Messenger of Allah [Salih ( )] said to them: “(Respect) the she-camel of Allah and its turn to drink water.”
فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَعَقَرُوهَا فَدَمۡدَمَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ رَبُّهُم بِذَنۢبِهِمۡ فَسَوَّىٰهَا14 14
But they denied their Prophet and killed the she-camel. Hence, their Creator destroyed them because of their sins and (by destroying this community) levelled it up.
