Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
I swear by the daybreak, (1) and the ten nights! (2) And by the even and the odd (of all the creations of Allah). (3) And [by] the night when it passes, (4) Is this not a sufficient oath for intelligent people? (5) Did you not see how did your Lord deal with (the tribe of) Aad? (6) the people of the huge columned city of Eram (7) The like of which were not created in the land? (8) And the tribe of Thamud, who hewed rocks in the valley. (9) and with Pharaoh of the [many] tent-poles? (10) (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands, (11) And made therein much mischief. (12) Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement. (13) Indeed, your Lord is in observation. (14) As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me." (15) But when He tries him (differently), then straitens to him his means of subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me. (16) No! But you do not honor the orphan (17) and you do not urge one another to feed the needy, (18) and you devour the inheritance greedily, (19) And you love wealth with much love! (20) Nay, but [how will you fare on Judgment Day,] when the earth is crushed with crushing upon crushing, (21) when your Lord comes down with the angels, rank upon rank, (22) and Hell is made to appear on that Day, then man will be mindful, but what will being mindful then avail him? (23) He shall say, 'O would that I had forwarded for my life!' (24) Wherefore on that Day none shall torment with His torment. (25) And no one binds like He does! (26) [But to the righteous, God will say], "O soul at peace, (27) return to your Lord wellpleased, wellpleasing. (28) So enter among My (righteous) servants (29) Enter thou My Paradise!' (30)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
