Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I swear by the daybreak, (1) By the Nights twice five; (2) And [by] the even [number] and the odd (3) And the night when it departeth, (4) Is there in this an oath for one endowed with understanding? (5) Hast thou not seen how thy Lord did with Ad, (6) [the people of] Iram the many-pillared, (7) The like of which was not built in the cities, (8) And with Thamud who carved rocks in the valley; (9) (Also consider the people of) the Pharaoh who victimized people by placing them on the stake, (10) All of them committed excesses in their lands, (11) spreading in them much corruption? (12) Wherefore thy Lord poured on them the scourge of His torment. (13) surely thy Lord is ever on the watch. (14) As for man, when his Lord tests him, through honour and blessings, 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 urge not on the feeding of AlMiskin (the poor)! (18) and greedily devour the entire inheritance, (19) And you harbour intense love for wealth. (20) Surely when We pound the earth to powder grounded, pounded to dust, (21) And thy Lord shall come with angels, rank on rank, (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, "Would that I had done some good deeds for this life". (24) Wherefore on that Day none shall torment with His torment. (25) and Allah will bind as none other can bind. (26) O soul that art at rest! (27) "Come back to your Lord, Well-pleased (yourself) and well-pleasing unto Him! (28) "Enter then among My votaries, (29) into My Paradise. (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
