Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By the dawn (1) And by oath of ten nights. (2) And by the even and the odd, (3) and by the passing night, (4) Why is there an oath in this, for the intelligent? (5) Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Ad, (6) of the columned (city) of Iram, (7) whose like has never been created in any other land. (8) And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?- (9) And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts, (10) Who (all) were rebellious (to Allah) in these lands, (11) And made therein much mischief. (12) (Therefore) your Lord let loose upon them a scourge of punishment; (13) for, verily, thy Sustainer is ever on the watch! (14) As for man, whenever his Lord tries him, and honours him, and blesses him, then he says, 'My Lord has honoured me.' (15) But when He tries him and restricts his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me." (16) By no means! But ye honour not the orphan, (17) and you do not urge one another to feed the needy, (18) Why do you take away the inheritance of others indiscriminately (19) And ye love riches with exceeding love. (20) Nay! When the earth is ground to powder, (21) And thy Lord shall come with angels, rank on rank, (22) and Hell is made to appear on that Day, then man will be mindful, but what will being mindful then avail him? (23) He will say, "Would that I had done some good deeds for this life". (24) Then on that Day Allah will chastise as none other can chastise; (25) and none can bind with bonds like His. (26) Serene soul, (27) Return thou unto thy Sustainer, well-pleased [and] pleasing [Him]: (28) So enter among My servants, (29) "And enter you My Paradise!" (30)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
