وَالسَّمَاءِ ذَاتِ الْبُرُوجِ 1
Dr. Mustafa Khattab By the sky full of constellations,

وَالْيَوْمِ الْمَوْعُودِ 2
Dr. Mustafa Khattab and the promised Day ˹of Judgment˺,

وَشَاهِدٍ وَمَشْهُودٍ 3
Dr. Mustafa Khattab and the witness and what is witnessed!1

قُتِلَ أَصْحَابُ الْأُخْدُودِ 4
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Condemned are the makers of the ditch—

النَّارِ ذَاتِ الْوَقُودِ 5
Dr. Mustafa Khattab the fire ˹pit˺, filled with fuel—

إِذْ هُمْ عَلَيْهَا قُعُودٌ 6
Dr. Mustafa Khattab when they sat around it,

وَهُمْ عَلَىٰ مَا يَفْعَلُونَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ شُهُودٌ 7
Dr. Mustafa Khattab watching what they had ˹ordered to be˺ done to the believers,

وَمَا نَقَمُوا مِنْهُمْ إِلَّا أَنْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَمِيدِ 8
Dr. Mustafa Khattab who they resented for no reason other than belief in Allah—the Almighty, the Praiseworthy—

الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ﭿ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ 9
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹the One˺ to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and earth. And Allah is a Witness over all things.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَتَنُوا الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَتُوبُوا فَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ جَهَنَّمَ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ الْحَرِيقِ 10
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Those who persecute the believing men and women and then do not repent will certainly suffer the punishment of Hell and the torment of burning.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ ذَٰلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْكَبِيرُ 11
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Surely those who believe and do good will have Gardens under which rivers flow. That is the greatest triumph.
