Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
I CALL TO witness the dawn (1) by the Ten (secret) Nights, (2) by the even and the odd, (3) And by the night when it departeth, (4) Truly in that there is an oath for those who possess understanding. (5) Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),- (6) of Iram, known for their lofty columns, (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 Fir'awn, owner of the stakes (10) (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands, (11) and spread much corruption in the land. (12) Thy Lord unloosed on them a scourge of chastisement; (13) Verily thy Lord is in an ambuscade, (14) So man, whenever his Lord tests him by giving him honour and favours thereupon he says, “My Lord has honoured me.” (15) And if He tests him and restricts his livelihood thereupon he says, “My Lord has degraded me!” (16) No indeed; but you honour not the orphan, (17) nor do you urge one another to feed the poor, (18) and you devour the inheritance with greed, (19) And you love wealth with immense love. (20) By no means! when the earth shall be ground with grinding, grinding, (21) and thy Lord comes, and the angels rank on rank, (22) And brought [within view], that Day, is Hell - that Day, man will remember, but what good to him will be the remembrance? (23) He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for my life! (24) So on that day, no one punishes like He does! (25) And none can bind as He will bind. (26) (To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction! (27) return to your Lord well pleased with him and He will be pleased with you. (28) "Enter then among My votaries, (29) enter My Paradise! (30)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
