Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
By the dawn (1) By the Nights twice five; (2) And by the even and the odd (of all the creations of Allah). (3) And the night when it departeth, (4) Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? (5) Did you not see how did your Lord deal with (the tribe of) Aad? (6) of the columned (city) of Iram, (7) whose like has never been created in any other land. (8) And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley; (9) and with Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles? (10) Who committed inordinacy in the cities, (11) and caused much corruption in them: (12) and therefore thy Sustainer let loose upon them a scourge of suffering: (13) Truly your Lord is ever watchful. (14) As for man, whenever his Lord tries him, and honours him, and blesses him, then he says, 'My Lord has honoured me.' (15) But whenever He trieth him by straitening his means of life, he saith: My Lord despiseth me. (16) But nay, nay, [O men, consider all that you do and fail to do:] you are not generous towards the orphan, (17) And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor. (18) and you devour the inheritance with greed, (19) And you harbour intense love for wealth. (20) Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder, (21) And thy Lord shall come and the angels, rank on rank. (22) and when Hell is brought near that Day. On that Day will man understand, but of what avail will that understanding be? (23) He will say: 'Would that I had forwarded (good works) for my life!' (24) So on that Day, none will punish [as severely] as His punishment, (25) And none will bind [as severely] as His binding [of the evildoers]. (26) But ah! thou soul at peace! (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him], (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) yea, enter thou My paradise!" (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
