Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
By the Dawn (1) and ten nights, (2) Consider the multiple and the One! (3) by the night when it journeys on! (4) Is there in that an oath for the mindful? (5) Bethinkest thou not in what wise thy Lord did with the 'A'ad: (6) Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars, (7) The like of which were not created in the land? (8) And with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the vale, (9) and with Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles? (10) Who committed inordinacy in the cities, (11) And who then spread a lot of turmoil in them. (12) so your Lord unleashed on them the 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 tests him by restricting his provision, he says: 'My Lord has humiliated me' (16) Nay! But you treat not the orphans with kindness and generosity (i.e. you neither treat them well, nor give them their exact right of inheritance)! (17) and do not urge one another to feed the poor, (18) and greedily devour the entire inheritance, (19) And ye love riches with exceeding love. (20) Surely when We pound the earth to powder grounded, pounded to dust, (21) when your Lord comes down with the angels, rank upon rank, (22) And hell is brought near that day; on that day man will remember, but how will the remembrance (then avail him)? (23) He will say: "Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my life!" (24) But on that day shall no one chastise with (anything like) His chastisement, (25) none shall bind as He binds. (26) But ah! thou soul at peace! (27) Return thou unto thy Sustainer, well-pleased [and] pleasing [Him]: (28) Join My servants. (29) And enter thou My Garden. (30)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
