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) And the Ten Nights, (2) And [by] the even [number] and the odd (3) And by oath of the night when it recedes (4) Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? (5) Bethinkest thou not in what wise thy Lord did with the 'A'ad: (6) the people of Iram, the city of many pillars, (7) The likes of whom had never been created in the land? (8) And with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the vale, (9) And (with) Fir'aun (Pharaoh), who had pegs (who used to torture men by binding them to pegs)? (10) Those who rebelled in the cities, (11) And who then spread a lot of turmoil in them. (12) (Therefore) your Lord let loose upon them a scourge of punishment; (13) Lo! thy Lord is ever watchful. (14) Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me." (15) But when He tests him by restricting his provision, he says: 'My Lord has humiliated me' (16) No! But you do not honor the orphan (17) Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor, (18) And devour the inheritance devouring greedily, (19) And you love wealth with much love! (20) No! But when the earth quakes and is pounded, (21) And thy Lord shall come with 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: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!" (24) Upon that day none shall chastise as He chastises, (25) And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind. (26) [But to the righteous, God will say], "O soul at peace, (27) Return unto thine Lord well pleased and well-pleasing. (28) So enter among My servants, (29) enter My Paradise! (30)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
