Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By oath of the (particular) dawn. (1) And by oath of ten nights. (2) Consider the multiple and the One! (3) And by the Night when it passeth away;- (4) There surely is an oath for thinking man. (5) (Muhammad), consider how your Lord dealt with the tribe of Ad, (6) the people of Iram, the city of many pillars, (7) The like of which was not built in the cities, (8) And [with] Thamud, who carved out the rocks in the valley? (9) And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes? (10) Who all waxed exorbitant in the cities, (11) And who then spread a lot of turmoil in them. (12) Therefore thy Lord poured on them the disaster of His punishment. (13) Verily thy Lord is in an ambuscade, (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) However, when his Lord tests him by a measured amount of sustenance, he says, "God has disgraced me". (16) No! But you do not honor the orphan (17) And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor. (18) And you readily devour the inheritance with greed. (19) and love the riches, loving them ardently. (20) When the earth is crushed into small pieces (21) and when your Lord appears with rows upon rows of angels, (22) On that day, hell will be brought closer and the human being will come to his senses, but this will be of no avail to him. (23) He will say: "Oh, would that I had provided beforehand for my life [to come]!" (24) Then on that Day Allah will chastise as none other can chastise; (25) nor will any bind as He binds. (26) (On the other hand it will be said): “O serene soul! (27) Return towards your Lord you being pleased with Him, and He pleased with you! (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) Enter My Paradise." (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
