١٥. فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِالْخُنَّسِ
15. Fala oqsimu bialkhunnasi
So I swear by the retreating stars -
So, I call the receding stars to witness,
So by oath of those that revolve. (The planets.)
No! I swear by the slinkers,
I swear by the receding stars.

But nay! I swear by Al-Khunnas.
Oh, but I call to witness the planets,

I do not need to swear by the orbiting
But nay! I swear by the stars,
I swear by the receding stars,
So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede,
