T.B.Irving rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the Daybreak
89:2 and ten nights
89:3 and the even and the odd,
89:4 and night as it journeys on,
89:5 does that not contain an oath for someone who is mindful?
89:6 Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad,
89:7 [the people of] Iram, possessing columns
89:8 whose like had never been created in the land?
89:9 And Thamud who carved rock out of the valley;
89:10 and Pharaoh wielding kingpins
89:11 who were (all) so arrogant in the land
89:12 and increased corruption there?
89:13 Your Lord unleashed the scourge of torment on them.
89:14 Your Lord is ever on the lookout!
89:15 Yet everyman says, whenever his Lord tests him by honoring and favoring him: "My Lord has honored me!";
89:16 while whenever He tests him by rationing His sustenance for him, he says: "My Lord has disgraced me."
89:17 Rather you are not generous with the orphan
89:18 nor do you promote feeding the needy,
89:19 and greedily use up anything you inherit.
89:20 You love money till it´s brimming over!
89:21 Indeed when the earth has been completely flattened out
89:22 and your Lord comes with the angels, row upon row,
89:23 and brings up Hell on that day; on that day everyman will remember, as if remembrance even matters to him!
89:24 He will say: "It´s too bad for me! What did I send on ahead during my lifetime?"
89:25 On that day, no one will torment [anyone] with torment like His,
89:26 and no one will hold to any agreement as he will hold to His!
89:27 O Tranquil soul,
89:28 return to your Lord well pleased and pleasing [Him]!
89:29 Enter among My servants,
89:30 and. enter My garden.
