George Sale rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
---
89:1 By the day-break,
89:2 and then nights;
89:3 by that which is double, and that which is single;
89:4 and by the night when it cometh on:
89:5 Is there not in this an oath formed with understanding?
89:6 Hast thou not considered how thy Lord dealt with Ad,
89:7 the people of Irem, adorned with lofty buildings,
89:8 the like whereof hath not been erected in the land;
89:9 and with Thamud, who hewed the rocks in the valley into houses;
89:10 and with Pharaoh, the contriver of the stakes:
89:11 Who had behaved insolently in the earth,
89:12 and multiplied corruption therein?
89:13 Wherefore thy Lord poured on them various kinds of chastisement:
89:14 For thy Lord is surely in a watch-tower, whence He observeth the actions of men.
89:15 Moreover man, when his Lord trieth him by prosperity, and honoureth him, and is bounteous unto him, saith, my Lord honoureth me:
89:16 But when He proveth him by afflictions, and withholdeth his provisions from him, he saith, my Lord despiseth me.
89:17 By no means: But ye honour not the orphan,
89:18 neither do ye excite one another to feed the poor;
89:19 and ye devour the inheritance of the weak, with undistinguishing greediness;
89:20 and ye love riches, with much affection.
89:21 By no means should ye do thus. When the earth shall be minutely ground to dust;
89:22 and thy Lord shall come, and the angels rank by rank;
89:23 and hell, on that day, shall be brought nigh: On that day shall man call to remembrance his evil deeds; but how shall remembrance avail him?
89:24 He shall say, would to God that I had heretofore done good works in my life-time!
89:25 On that day none shall punish with his punishment;
89:26 nor shall any bind with his bonds.
89:27 O thou soul which art at rest,
89:28 return unto thy Lord, well pleased with thy reward, and well pleasing unto God:
89:29 Enter among my servants;
89:30 and enter my paradise.
