Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the dawn
89:2 and the ten nights,
89:3 by the even number and the odd number
89:4 and at night when it sets out.
89:5 Is there not in that an oath to be sworn for a possessor of intelligence?
89:6 Hast thou not considered how thy Lord accomplished with Ad,
89:7 with Iram of the pillars
89:8 of which are not created the likes in the land?
89:9 And with Thamud, those who hollowed out the rocks in the valley?
89:10 And with Pharaoh, the possessor of the stakes,
89:11 those who were defiant in the land
89:12 and made much corruption in it?
89:13 So thy Lord unloosed on them a scourge of punishment.
89:14 Truly, thy Lord is, surely, on the watch.
89:15 Then, as for the human being, when his Lord tested him and honored him and lauded him, he says: My Lord honored me.
89:16 But whenever He tested him and constricted his provision for him, he says: My Lord despised me.
89:17 No indeed! Nay! You honor not the orphan
89:18 and you encouraged not one another about food for the needy
89:19 and you consume the inheritance, a greedy consuming,
89:20 and you love wealth with an ardent cherishing.
89:21 No indeed! When the earth will be ground to powder, ground to powder, ground to powder,
89:22 and thy Lord will draw near, and the angels, ranged in rows,
89:23 on the Day hell is brought about. On that Day the human being will recollect. And how will the reminder be for him?
89:24 He will say: O would that I had put forward from this life for the world to come!
89:25 Then, on that Day, He will punish no one the like of His punishment.
89:26 And no one will bind as His restraints.
89:27 O soul, one that is at peace!
89:28 Return to thy Lord, one that is well-pleasing, well-pleased:
89:29 Enter thou among My servants
89:30 and thou enter My Garden!
