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 the break of Day (1) And by ten nights, (2) And the Even and the Odd, (3) And the night when it departs. (4) Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? (5) Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad (6) Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars, (7) The like of which were not produced in (all) the land? (8) (Also consider how He dealt with) the Thamud, who carved their houses out of the rocks in the valley. (9) And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes? - (10) (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands, (11) and exceeded in corruption therein. (12) Then their Lord unloosed upon them the lash of chastisement. (13) indeed, your Lord is ever watchful. (14) Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me." (15) And when He proveth him, and so stinteth unto him his provision, he saith: 'my Lord hath despised me. (16) By no means! But ye honour not the orphan, (17) or urge one another to feed the destitute? (18) And devour the inheritance devouring greedily, (19) And you love wealth with immense love. (20) No indeed! When the earth is crushed and ground to dust, (21) And comes your Lord, and angels row on row, (22) And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him? (23) He will say: "Alas the woe! Would that I had sent ahead something in my life." (24) For, none can make suffer as He will make suffer [the sinners] on that Day, (25) And His bonds will be such as none other can bind. (26) [But to the righteous, God will say], "O soul at peace, (27) Return to your Lord well-pleased (with your blissful destination), well-pleasing (to your Lord). (28) Enter thou among My righteous bondmen! (29) Enter My Paradise." (30)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
