Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the dawn (1) and ten nights, (2) by the odd and even (8th and 9th Dhil-hajj) (3) And by the Night when it passeth away;- (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) the people of Iram, the city of many pillars, (7) the like of which has never been created in the land, (8) And with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the vale, (9) And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes? - (10) [It was they] who transgressed all bounds of equity all over their lands, (11) And heaped therein mischief (on mischief). (12) Then their Lord unloosed upon them the lash of chastisement. (13) Your Lord is certainly in wait. (14) And as for man, when his Lord tries him and [thus] is generous to him and favors him, he says, "My Lord has honored 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 urge not on the feeding of the poor. (18) And ye devour inheritance - all with greed, (19) and you love wealth with an ardent love (20) When the earth is crushed into small pieces (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) And on that Day hell will be brought [within sight]; on that Day man will remember [all that he did and failed to do]: but what will that remembrance avail him? (23) He will say: "Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my life!" (24) On that Day no one will punish as He punishes, (25) and Allah will bind as none other can bind. (26) [But unto the righteous God will say,] "O thou human being that hast attained to inner peace! (27) Return towards your Lord you being pleased with Him, and He pleased with you! (28) "Enter thou, then, among My devotees! (29) And come into My Paradise! (30)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
