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 Compassionate
CONSIDER the daybreak (1) and ten nights (of pilgrimage or the last ten days of Ramadan), (2) by the odd and even (8th and 9th Dhil-hajj) (3) Consider the night as it runs its course! (4) Is there in that an oath for the mindful? (5) Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with 'Aad - (6) Of Eram with lofty pillars (erected as signposts in the desert), (7) The like of whom were never created in the realm; (8) And the tribe of Thamud, who hewed rocks in the valley. (9) And with Pharaoh of the tent pegs (10) [It was they] who transgressed all bounds of equity all over their lands, (11) and worked much corruption therein? (12) and therefore thy Sustainer let loose upon them a scourge of suffering: (13) Verily, your Lord is Ever Watchful (over them). (14) As for man, whenever his Lord tries him, and honours him, and blesses him, then he says, 'My Lord has honoured me.' (15) whereas, whenever He tries him by straitening his means of livelihood, he says, "My Sustainer has disgraced me!" (16) But no; you do not treat the orphan honourably, (17) nor do you urge one another to feed the poor, (18) And you readily devour the inheritance with greed. (19) and you have a love of wealth which can never be satisfied. (20) Nay, but when the earth is ground to atoms, grinding, grinding, (21) And when the command of your Lord comes and the angels row by row, (22) And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him? (23) He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!" (24) Wherefore on that Day none shall torment with His torment. (25) none shall bind as He binds. (26) [But to the righteous, God will say], "O soul at peace, (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with him), well-pleasing (Him), (28) "Enter then among My votaries, (29) and enter My Paradise.” (30)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
