Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the daw
89:2 and ten nights
89:3 And the single and the double
89:4 And the night when it travels on
89:5 Is there in that an oath for a man of sense
89:6 Hast thou not seen how thy Lord did with Ad?
89:7 with Iram of the columns
89:8 the like of which has not been created in the land
89:9 And Thamud when they hewed the stones in the valley
89:10 And Pharaoh of the stakes
89:11 Who were outrageous in the land
89:12 and did multiply wickedness therein
89:13 and thy Lord poured out upon them the scourge of torment
89:14 Verily, thy Lord is on a watch tower
89:15 and as for man, whenever his Lord tries him and honours him and grants him favour, then he says, My Lord has honoured me
89:16 but whenever he tries him and doles out to him his subsistence, then he says, My Lord despises me
89:17 Nay, but ye do not honour the orphan
89:18 nor do ye urge each other to feed the poor
89:19 and ye devour the inheritance (of the weak) with a general devouring
89:20 and ye love wealth with a complete love
89:21 Nay, when the earth is crushed to pieces
89:22 and thy Lord comes with the angels, rank on rank
89:23 and hell is brought on that day,- on that day shall man be reminded! but how shall he have a reminder
89:24 He will say, 'Would that I had sent something forward for my life!
89:25 But on that day no one shall be tormented with a torment like his
89:26 and none shall be bound with bonds like his
89:27 O thou comforted soul
89:28 return unto thy Lord, well pleased and well pleased with
89:29 And enter amongst my servants
89:30 and enter my Paradise
