سورة البروج

85. Al-Burooj

The Mansions of the stars

Total verses: 22
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that opens with a three-part oath of the Divine One, who swears by the sky studded with The Houses, by the assurance that the Day of Resurrection shall come, and by His Own Universal Witness, which beholds all, that the believers shall have their reward, and the unbelievers their punishment, in the Hereafter. It takes is name from "the houses" (burūj) mentioned in verse 1, normally understood in conjunction to the constellations. The surah strengthened the heart of the Prophet Muḥammad and his followers by referring to the fate of those who tortured earlier believers. The title expresses God’s power over the whole universe, from the stars in the sky to the evildoers referred to in this surah. Indeed, His all-encompassing power is a recurring theme throughout the surah.
The surah is also known as: Signs of the Zodiac, The Constellations, The Houses of the Zodiac, The Towering Constellations, Zodiacal Signs.
