Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By the dawn (1) by the Ten Nights, (2) And the Even and the Odd, (3) And [by] the night when it passes, (4) Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? (5) Have you not seen what your Lord did to the 'Ad (6) (And) the tall giants of Iram? (7) the like of which was never created in the land, (8) And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the valley, (9) and Pharaoh, he of the tent-pegs, (10) who transgressed in the countries of the world (11) and spread much corruption in the land. (12) So your Lord poured on them different kinds of severe torment. (13) surely thy Lord is ever on the watch. (14) As for man, whenever his Lord trieth him by honouring him, and is gracious unto him, he saith: My Lord honoureth me. (15) But when he tries him and stints for him his provision, then he says, 'My Lord has despised me.' (16) By no means! But ye honour not the orphan, (17) And do not urge one another to feed the needy. (18) And ye devour inheritance - all with greed, (19) And you love wealth with exceeding love. (20) No indeed! When the earth is ground to powder, (21) And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks, (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, "Oh, would that I had provided beforehand for my life!" (24) None punisheth as He will punish on that day! (25) none shall bind as He binds. (26) [But unto the righteous God will say,] "O thou human being that hast attained to inner peace! (27) return to your Lord well pleased with him and He will be pleased with you. (28) And enter among My [righteous] servants (29) Enter then My garden." (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
