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
I swear by the daybreak, (1) And by ten nights, (2) by the odd and even (8th and 9th Dhil-hajj) (3) And by oath of the night when it recedes (4) Is there in that an oath for a mindful man? (5) Have you not heard how your Lord dealt with Aad? (6) Of Eram with lofty pillars (erected as signposts in the desert), (7) The likes of whom had never been created in the land? (8) And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the valley, (9) And (with) Fir'aun (Pharaoh), who had pegs (who used to torture men by binding them to pegs)? (10) who all were insolent in the land (11) and worked much corruption therein? (12) Then their Lord unloosed upon them the lash of chastisement. (13) your Lord keeps an eye on (all evil-doing people). (14) As for man - when his Lord proveth him and so honoureth him and is bounteous unto him, then he saith: 'my Lord hath honoured me, (15) But when He tries him, by straitening his means of life, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!" (16) No. In fact you are not generous to the orphans, (17) nor do you urge one another to feed the needy. (18) And ye devour inheritance - all with greed, (19) and you love wealth with an ardent love (20) Nay! When the earth is ground to powder, (21) And thy Lord shall come and the angels, rank on rank. (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 forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!" (24) On that day the punishment of God and His detention will be unparalleled. (25) none shall bind as He binds. (26) [To the righteous it will be said], "O reassured soul, (27) return to your Lord, well-pleased, well-pleasing. (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) "Yea, enter thou My Heaven! (30)
