Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
CONSIDER the daybreak (1) And by oath of ten nights. (2) and the even and the odd, (3) And by the Night when it passeth away;- (4) There surely is an oath for thinking man. (5) ART THOU NOT aware of how thy Sustainer has dealt with [the tribe of] 'Ad, (6) The people of many-columned lram. (7) the like of which has never been 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) Those who rebelled in the cities, (11) And multiplied iniquity therein? (12) So your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment. (13) Your Lord is certainly in wait. (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 restricts his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me." (16) Nay! But you treat not the orphans with kindness and generosity (i.e. you neither treat them well, nor give them their exact right of inheritance)! (17) Nor urge upon each other the feeding of the poor, (18) And ye devour inheritance - all with greed, (19) And you love wealth with immense love. (20) Nay! When the earth is ground to powder, (21) And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks, (22) and Gehenna (Hell) is brought near on that Day the human will remember, and how shall the Reminder be for him? (23) He will say: “Would that I had sent ahead what would be of avail for this life of mine!” (24) None can punish as He will punish on that day, (25) none shall bind as He binds. (26) (On the other hand it will be said): “O serene soul! (27) return to your Lord well pleased with him and He will be pleased with you. (28) Then enter the ranks of My chosen bondmen! (29) into My Paradise. (30)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
