Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the break of Day (1) and ten nights (of pilgrimage or the last ten days of Ramadan), (2) And by oath of the even and the odd. (3) by the night when it journeys on! (4) Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? (5) Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),- (6) of Iram, known for their lofty columns, (7) The like of which were not produced in (all) the land? (8) and with [the tribe of] Thamud, who hollowed out rocks in the valley? (9) and Pharaoh, he of the tent-pegs, (10) They were tyrants in the land (11) and caused much corruption in them: (12) Then their Lord unloosed upon them the lash of chastisement. (13) for, indeed, your Sustainer is ever on the watch! (14) As for man, when his Lord tests him by exalting him and bestowing His bounties upon him, he says: “My Lord has exalted me.” (15) But whenever He trieth him by straitening his means of life, he saith: My Lord despiseth me. (16) By no means! But ye honour not the orphan, (17) nor do you urge one another to feed the poor, (18) And ye devour heritages with devouring greed. (19) And ye love wealth with inordinate love! (20) Nay, but [how will you fare on Judgment Day,] when the earth is crushed with crushing upon crushing, (21) And comes your Lord, and angels row on row, (22) And when hell is brought that day on that day will man reflect, but where is the time now to think? (23) He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for 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 unto thine Lord well pleased and well-pleasing. (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) "Yea, enter thou My Heaven! (30)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
