89. Surat-ul-Fajr (The Dawn)

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

 

1. By the Dawn,
2. and by the ten nights,
3. and by the even and the odd,
4. and by night when it departs
5. indeed in them is an oath for man of sense.
6. Did thou not see how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad,
7. and the people of many-columned Iram,
8. the like of which was not built in the cities,
9. and with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the vale?
10. And with Fir'awn, owner of the stakes --
11. who all waxed exorbitant in the cities;
12. so they multiplied corruption therein,
13. So thy Lord inflicted on them the scourage of His chastisement.
14. Verily thy Lord is in an ambuscade.
15. As for man -- when his Lord tries him and honours him, and is bountiful to him, he says: my Lord has honoured me.
16. And when his lord tries him and stints unto him his provision, he says: my lord has despised me.
17. No indeed I but you do not honour the orphan,
18. nor urge upon each other the feeding of the poor,
19. and you devour the inheritance greedily,
20. and you love riches with exceeding love.
21. No indeed I when the earth is ground with exceeding grinding,
22. and comes thy Lord and the angles, rank on rank,
23. and hell that Day is brought near. man on that Day shall remember, but how can remembrance avail him them?
24. Man will say: would that I had sent before for this life of mine.
25. So on that Day none shall torment any like His torment,
26. nor shall blind any like His bond.
27. O thou peaceful soul!
28. Return unto thy Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing.
29. Enter thou among My righteous bondmen,
30. and enter thou My Garden.
