Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By the dawn (1) And [by] ten nights (2) And the Even and the Odd, (3) The night as it advances, (4) Considering all this - could there be, to anyone endowed with reason, a [more] solemn evidence of the truth? (5) Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad (6) The people of many-columned lram. (7) Like whom no one else was born in the cities. (8) And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?- (9) And the mighty Pharaoh (10) All of them committed excesses in their lands, (11) So they made great mischief therein? (12) Therefore thy Lord poured on them the disaster of His punishment. (13) Your Lord is certainly in wait. (14) As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me." (15) But when He tests him by straitening his sustenance, he says: “My Lord has humiliated me.” (16) No! But you do not honor the orphan (17) And do not urge one another to feed the needy. (18) and you greedily devour the inheritance of the weak, (19) and why do you have an excessive love of riches? (20) Most certainly when the earth is smashed and blown to bits. (21) and your Lord comes with the angels, rank upon rank, (22) and Hell is made to appear on that Day, then man will be mindful, but what will being mindful then avail him? (23) He will say: "Alas the woe! Would that I had sent ahead something in my life." (24) So on that Day, none will punish as He will punish. (25) And none will bind [as severely] as His binding [of the evildoers]. (26) 'O soul at peace, (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him], (28) Join My servants. (29) Enter then My garden." (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
