Sura Al-Fajr (Dawn)
Sheikh / Mohammad Ayyoob

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    89:1-5 By the dawn, and ten nights, and the Even and the Odd, and the night when it departs, there surely is an oath for those who possess understanding.

    89:6-12 Do you not consider how your Lord dealt with (the tribe of) Aad, with many-columned Iram, the like of which was not created in the lands; and with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley; and with Pharaoh, firm of might, who (all) were rebellious (to God) in these lands, and multiplied iniquity therein?

    89:13-14 Therefore your Lord poured on them the disaster of His punishment. Lo! Your Lord is ever Watchful.

    89:15-16 As for man, whenever his Lord tries him by honoring him, and is gracious to him, he says: My Lord honors me. But whenever He tries him by straitening his means of life, he says: My Lord despises me.

    89:17-20 Nay, but you (for your part) honor not the orphan, and urge not on the feeding of the poor, and you devour heritages with devouring greed, and love wealth with abounding love.

    89:21-26 Nay, but when the earth is ground to atoms, grinding, grinding, and your Lord shall come with angels, rank on rank, and Hell is brought near that Day; on that Day man will remember, but how will the remembrance (then avail him)? He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for my life! None punishes as He will punish on that Day! None binds as He then will bind.

    89:27-30 But ah! Your soul at peace! Return to your Lord, content in His good pleasure! Enter you among My bondmen! Enter you My Garden!
