89: Al-Fajr (الفجر)

Audio Surah: AL-FAJR

1:  I swear by the daybreak,

2:  And the ten nights,

3:  And the even and the odd,

4:  And the night when it departs.

5:  Truly in that there is an oath for those who possess understanding.

6:  Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Ad,

7:  (The people of) Aram, possessors of lofty buildings,

8:  The like of which were not created in the (other) cities;

9:  And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the valley,

10:  And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts,

11:  Who committed inordinacy in the cities,

12:  So they made great mischief therein?

13:  Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement.

14:  Most surely your Lord is watching.

15:  And as for man, when his Lord tries him, then treats him with honor and makes him lead an easy life, he says: My Lord honors me.

16:  But when He tries him (differently), then straitens to him his means of subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me.

17:  Nay! but you do not honor the orphan,

18:  Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,

19:  And you eat away the heritage, devouring (everything) indiscriminately,

20:  And you love wealth with exceeding love.

21:  Nay! when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,

22:  And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks,

23:  And hell is made to appear on that day. On that day shall man be mindful, and what shall being mindful (then) avail him?

24:  He shall say: O! would that I had sent before for (this) my life!

25:  But on that day shall no one chastise with (anything like) His chastisement,

26:  And no one shall bind with (anything like) His binding.

27:  O soul that art at rest!

28:  Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with him), well-pleasing (Him),

29:  So enter among My servants,

30:  And enter into My garden.
