89 Al-Fajr | The Dawn

  • 89:1

    By the dawn.

  • 89:2

    The ten nights.

  • 89:3

    The even and the odd.

  • 89:4

    The night when it passes.

  • 89:5

    In this is an oath for the one with intelligence.

  • 89:6

    Did you not see what your Lord did to Aad?

  • 89:7

    Iram, with the great columns?

  • 89:8

    The one which was like no other in the land?

  • 89:9

    Thamud who carved the rocks in the valley?

  • 89:10

    And Pharaoh with the pyramids?

  • 89:11

    They all transgressed in the land.

  • 89:12

    Made much corruption therein.

  • 89:13

    So your Lord poured upon them a measure of retribution.

  • 89:14

    Your Lord is ever watchful.

  • 89:15

    As for man, if his Lord tests him and grants him much, then he says: "My Lord has blessed me!"

  • 89:16

    If his Lord tests him and gives him little wealth, then he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!"

  • 89:17

    No, you are not generous to the orphan.

  • 89:18

    You do not look to feeding the poor.

  • 89:19

    You consume others inheritance, all with greed.

  • 89:20

    You love money, a love that is excessive.

  • 89:21

    No, when the earth is pounded into rubble.

  • 89:22

    Your Lord comes with the controllers row after row.

  • 89:23

    Hell on that day is brought. On that day the human being will remember, but how will the remembrance now help him?

  • 89:24

    He says: "I wish I had worked towards my life!"

  • 89:25

    On that day, no other will bear his punishment.

  • 89:26

    Nor will anyone be able to free his bonds.

  • 89:27

    "As for you, O the content person."

  • 89:28

    "Return to your Lord pleasing and pleased."

  • 89:29

    "Enter in amongst My servants."

  • 89:30

    "Enter My Paradise."
