In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

By the sun and its brightness;[1] by the moon, as she follows him;[2] by the day, which shows its splendor;[3] by the night, which draws a veil over it;[4] by the heaven and Him Who made it;[5] by the earth and Him Who spread it;[6] by the soul and Him Who perfected it[7] and inspired it with knowledge of what is wrong for it and what is right for it:[8] indeed successful will be the one who keeps it pure,[9] and indeed failure will be the one who corrupts it![10]

91:[1-10]

Success depends on keeping the soul pure and failure depends on corrupting it

The people of Thamüd denied the truth because of their arrogant transgression[11] when the most wicked man among them was deputed to kill the she-camel.[12] The Rasool of Allah warned them, saying: “This is Allah’s She-camel do not molest her! Let her drink on her turn."[13] They disbelieved him and hamstrung her. Therefore, for that crime, their Rabb let loose His scourge upon them and leveled them to the ground.[14] For He (Allah) has no fear of its consequences.[15]

91:[11-15]

The corrupted people of Thamüd were leveled to the ground

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Success depends on keeping the soul pure and failure depends on corrupting it, people of Thamüd were leveled to the ground for that very reason.

This Sürah teaches that:

  1. Just as the sun and the moon, the day and the night, the earth and the sky, are different from each other and contradictory in their effects and results, so are good and evil different from each other and contradictory in their effects and results; they are neither alike in their outward appearance nor can they be alike in their results.
  2. Allah, after giving the human his body, sense and mind has not left him uninformed in the world, but has instilled into his subconscious, by means of a natural inspiration, the distinction between good and evil,right and wrong.
  3. The future of man depends on recognizing these differences, developing the good and suppressing the evil tendencies of the self. If he develops good inclinations and frees himself of evil inclinations, he will attain eternal success, and if, on the contrary, he suppresses good and promotes evil, he will meet with disappointments and failures.

This Sürah then relates the story of the people of Thamüd to show that a Rasool is raised in the world; because the inspirational knowledge of good and evil that Allah has placed in human nature is, by itself, not enough for the guidance of man; rather on account of his failure to understand it, man has invented wrong criteria, and theories of good and evil, and is going astray. The example of Thamüd relates that Prophet Saleh (pbuh) was sent to that nation, but the people were overwhelmed by their evil became so rebellious, that they rejected him. And when he presented before them the miracle of the she camel, which was demanded by them, the one who was the most wretched of them hamstrung it in accordance with the will and desire of the people. Consequently, the entire tribe was overtaken by the wrath of Allah.
