Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By the dawn (1) by the Ten (secret) Nights, (2) by the even, and the odd, (3) And the night when it departs. (4) Is there in that an oath for a mindful man? (5) Dost thou not consider how thy Lord dealt with (the tribe of) A'ad, (6) With many-columned Iram, (7) The like of which were not created in the land? (8) And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?- (9) and with Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles? (10) Who committed inordinacy in the cities, (11) And heaped therein mischief (on mischief). (12) and therefore thy Sustainer let loose upon them a scourge of suffering: (13) surely thy Lord is ever on the watch. (14) As for the human being, when his Lord tests him, honors him, and grants him bounty, he says, "God has honored me". (15) But when He tests him by restricting his provision, he says: 'My Lord has humiliated me' (16) But no; you do not treat the orphan honourably, (17) And urge not on the feeding of the poor. (18) and you devour the inheritance greedily, (19) And you love wealth with exceeding love. (20) Nay, but [how will you fare on Judgment Day,] when the earth is crushed with crushing upon crushing, (21) and thy Lord comes, and the angels rank on rank, (22) And Hell is brought near, that day will man remember, but of what avail will then remembering be? (23) He will say: "Oh, would that I had provided beforehand for my life [to come]!" (24) On that Day no one will punish as He punishes, (25) Nor shall any bind with His bond. (26) O the contented soul! (27) return to your Lord wellpleased, wellpleasing. (28) And enter among My [righteous] servants (29) Enter thou My Paradise!' (30)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
