M. M. Pickthall rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the Daw
89:2 And ten nights
89:3 And the Even and the Odd
89:4 And the night when it departeth
89:5 There surely is an oath for thinking man
89:6 Dost thou not consider how thy Lord dealt with (the tribe of) A'ad
89:7 With many-columned Iram
89:8 The like of which was not created in the lands
89:9 And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley
89:10 And with Pharaoh, firm of might
89:11 Who (all) were rebellious (to Allah) in these lands
89:12 And multiplied iniquity therein
89:13 Therefore thy Lord poured on them the disaster of His punishment
89:14 Lo! thy Lord is ever watchful
89:15 As for man, whenever his Lord trieth him by honouring him, and is gracious unto him, he saith: My Lord honoureth me
89:16 But whenever He trieth him by straitening his means of life, he saith: My Lord despiseth me
89:17 Nay, but ye (for your part) honour not the orpha
89:18 And urge not on the feeding of the poor
89:19 And ye devour heritages with devouring greed
89:20 And love wealth with abounding love
89:21 Nay, but when the earth is ground to atoms, grinding, grinding
89:22 And thy Lord shall come with angels, rank on rank
89:23 And hell is brought near that day; on that day man will remember, but how will the remembrance (then avail him)
89:24 He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for my life
89:25 None punisheth as He will punish on that day
89:26 None bindeth as He then will bind
89:27 But ah! thou soul at peace
89:28 Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure
89:29 Enter thou among My bondmen
89:30 Enter thou My Garden
