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
I swear by 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) by the night when it journeys on! (4) Indeed in that there is an oath for a man of sense. (5) ART THOU NOT aware of how thy Sustainer has dealt with [the tribe of] 'Ad, (6) of Iram, known for their lofty columns, (7) The like of which was not built in the cities, (8) And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley; (9) and with Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles? (10) [It was they] who transgressed all bounds of equity all over their lands, (11) and spread much corruption in the land. (12) (Therefore) your Lord let loose upon them a scourge of punishment; (13) Verily, your Lord is Ever Watchful (over them). (14) As for man, when his Lord tests him by honoring him and favoring him, he says: 'My Lord, has honored me' (15) And if He tests him and restricts his livelihood thereupon he says, “My Lord has degraded me!” (16) No indeed; but you honour not the orphan, (17) And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor. (18) and you devour the inheritance with greed, (19) And you love wealth with much love! (20) Nay! when the earth is made to crumble to pieces, (21) And comes your Lord, and angels row on row, (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: "Oh, would that I had provided beforehand for my life [to come]!" (24) So on that day, no one punishes like He does! (25) none shall bind as He binds. (26) Serene soul, (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing Him. (28) Then enter the ranks of My chosen bondmen! (29) Enter then My garden." (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
