Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the dawn, (1) And the ten nights, (2) And by oath of the even and the odd. (3) by the night when it journeys on! (4) Is this not a sufficient oath for intelligent people? (5) Have you not seen what your Lord did to the 'Ad (6) Who were very tall like lofty pillars, (7) the like of whom no nation was ever created in the lands of the world? (8) and with the Thamud, who cut out [huge] rocks in the valley, (9) And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes? - (10) who transgressed in the countries of the world (11) spreading in them much corruption? (12) Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement. (13) for, indeed, your Sustainer is ever on the watch! (14) As for man, whenever his Lord tries him and then is gracious and provides good things for him, he says: "My Lord has been gracious to me." (15) But whenever He trieth him by straitening his means of life, he saith: My Lord despiseth me. (16) By no means! But ye honour not the orphan, (17) Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor, (18) and you devour the inheritance with greed, (19) And you love wealth with immense love. (20) Nay, but when the earth is ground to atoms, grinding, grinding, (21) And thy Lord shall come and the angels, rank on rank. (22) And Hell is brought near, that day will man remember, but of what avail will then remembering be? (23) He will say, "Would that I had done some good deeds for this life". (24) So on that Day, none will punish [as severely] as His punishment, (25) and Allah will bind as none other can bind. (26) O you tranquil soul, (27) return to your Lord well pleased with him and He will be pleased with you. (28) "Enter you, then, among My honoured slaves, (29) And enter My Paradise." (30)
