Dawn (Al-Fajr)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Night (Al-Layl) before The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By oath of the (particular) dawn. (1) and the ten nights! (2) by the even and the odd, (3) and by the passing night, (4) Considering all this - could there be, to anyone endowed with reason, a [more] solemn evidence of the truth? (5) Did you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) not see (thought) how your Lord dealt with 'Ad (people)? (6) of the columned (city) of Iram, (7) The like of which was not built in the cities, (8) And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley; (9) And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts, (10) They were tyrants in the land (11) and exceeded in corruption therein. (12) Therefore your Lord struck them hard with the means of punishment. (13) Verily thy Lord is in an ambuscade, (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 and stints for him his provision, then he says, 'My Lord has despised me.' (16) No indeed, but you show no kindness to the orphan, (17) Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!- (18) and you devour the inheritance with greed, (19) And you love wealth with exceeding love. (20) No indeed! When the earth is crushed and ground to dust, (21) And comes your Lord, and angels row on row, (22) On that day, hell will be brought closer and the human being will come to his senses, but this will be of no avail to him. (23) He will say: “Would that I had sent ahead what would be of avail for this life of mine!” (24) Upon that day none shall chastise as He chastises, (25) and none can bind with bonds like His. (26) O satisfied soul, (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him], (28) Enter among My servants (29) "And enter you My Paradise!" (30)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
