Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By oath of the (particular) dawn. (1) and ten nights, (2) And by the even and the odd, (3) by the night when it journeys on! (4) Is there not an evidence in this for those who have sense? (5) Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad (6) Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars, (7) The like of which were not produced in (all) the land? (8) and with the Thamud, who cut out [huge] rocks in the valley, (9) And with Pharaoh, firm of might, (10) Who committed inordinacy in the cities, (11) And heaped therein mischief (on mischief). (12) so your Lord unleashed on them the scourge of punishment: (13) indeed, your Lord is ever watchful. (14) As for man, when his Lord tests him by honoring him and favoring him, he says: 'My Lord, has honored me' (15) However, when his Lord tests him by a measured amount of sustenance, he says, "God has disgraced me". (16) (Since wealth does not necessarily guarantee everlasting happiness) then why do you not show kindness to the orphans, (17) and you do not urge one another to feed the needy, (18) Why do you take away the inheritance of others indiscriminately (19) And ye love wealth with inordinate love! (20) But no; when the earth is ground to powder, (21) and (when you find yourself) in the presence of your Lord and the rows and rows of angels, your greed for riches will certainly be of no avail to you. (22) On that day, hell will be brought closer and the human being will come to his senses, but this will be of no avail to him. (23) He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for my life! (24) So on that Day, none will punish as He will punish. (25) and none can bind with bonds like His! (26) 'O soul at peace, (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him], (28) "Enter you, then, among My honoured slaves, (29) "Yea, enter thou My Heaven! (30)
