Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 I swear by (or call to witness) the dawn
89:2 And by the nights twice five (of pilgrimage)!
89:3 And the even and the odd!
89:4 And the night when it passes on!
89:5 Is there not in these a lesson (evidence or admonition) for a man of understanding?
89:6 Have you not seen how your Lord did with the people of A´ad?
89:7 With the city of Iram of the lofty pillars?
89:8 The like of which has not been created in all the land?
89:9 And with the people of Thamud when they hewed the great stones in the valley?
89:10 And with Pharaoh, Lord of the stakes?
89:11 All these were outrageous in the land,
89:12 And did multiply wickedness therein,
89:13 Therefore, your Lord poured out upon them the scourge of diverse torments.
89:14 Verily, your Lord is ever watchful!
89:15 Now 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 restricts his subsistence, then he says, "My Lord despises me!"
89:17 Nay, nay! But you do not honour the orphan,
89:18 Nor do you urge each other to feed the poor,
89:19 And you devour the inheritance (of the weak) with greed,
89:20 And you love wealth with an abounding love!
89:21 Nay, when the earth is crushed to pieces,
89:22 And your Lord comes with the angels, rank on rank,
89:23 And Hell is brought near on that Day, on that Day shall man remember! But how shall the remembrance profit him?
89:24 He will say, "Would that I had sent something forward for my life!"
89:25 But on that Day none shall punish as He punishes,
89:26 And none shall be bound with bonds like his!
89:27 But O, you soul in peace and fulfilment!
89:28 Return unto your Lord, well pleased and well pleasing unto Him!
89:29 Enter you amongst My servants,
89:30 Enter you My Garden (Paradise)!
