Chapter: 89, Al Fajr

89-1 : I swear by the daybreak,
89-2 : And the ten nights,
89-3 : And the even and the odd,
89-4 : And the night when it departs.
89-5 : Truly in that there is an oath for those who possess understanding.
89-6 : Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Ad,
89-7 : (The people of) Aram, possessors of lofty buildings,
89-8 : The like of which were not created in the (other) cities;
89-9 : And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the valley,
89-10 : And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts,
89-11 : Who committed inordinacy in the cities,
89-12 : So they made great mischief therein?
89-13 : Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement.
89-14 : Most surely your Lord is watching.
89-15 : 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.
89-16 : But when He tries him (differently), then straitens to him his means of subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me.
89-17 : Nay! but you do not honor the orphan,
89-18 : Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,
89-19 : And you eat away the heritage, devouring (everything) indiscriminately,
89-20 : And you love wealth with exceeding love.
89-21 : Nay! when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,
89-22 : And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks,
89-23 : And hell is made to appear on that day. On that day shall man be mindful, and what shall being mindful (then) avail him?
89-24 : He shall say: O! would that I had sent before for (this) my life!
89-25 : But on that day shall no one chastise with (anything like) His chastisement,
89-26 : And no one shall bind with (anything like) His binding.
89-27 : O soul that art at rest!
89-28 : Return to your Lord, well - pleased (with him), well - pleasing (Him),
89-29 : So enter among My servants,
89-30 : And enter into My garden.
