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
I swear by the daybreak, (1) By the Nights twice five; (2) by the odd and even (8th and 9th Dhil-hajj) (3) Consider the night as it runs its course! (4) There surely is an oath for thinking man. (5) Did you not see how did your Lord deal with (the tribe of) Aad? (6) [With] Iram - who had lofty pillars, (7) The like of which was not built in the cities, (8) And (with) Thamud (people), who cut (hewed) out rocks in the valley (to make dwellings)? (9) and Pharaoh, he of the tent-pegs, (10) who transgressed in the countries of the world (11) and exceeded in corruption therein. (12) Wherefore thy Lord poured on them the scourge of His torment. (13) Truly 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) 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 do not urge one another to feed the poor, (18) And you readily devour the inheritance with greed. (19) And you love wealth with exceeding love. (20) No! When the earth has been leveled - pounded and crushed - (21) when your Lord comes down with the angels, rank upon rank, (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: “Would that I had sent ahead what would be of avail for this life of mine!” (24) For, none can make suffer as He will make suffer [the sinners] on that Day, (25) and none can bind with bonds like His. (26) [To the righteous it will be said], "O reassured soul, (27) Return unto thine Lord well pleased and well-pleasing. (28) Join My worshipers and (29) and enter My Paradise.” (30)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
