Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 I CALL TO witness the dawn
89:2 And the Ten Nights,
89:3 The multiple and the one,
89:4 The night as it advances,
89:5 Is there not an evidence in this for those who have sense?
89:6 Have you not seen what your Lord did to the 'Ad
89:7 Of Eram with lofty pillars (erected as signposts in the desert),
89:8 The like of whom were never created in the realm;
89:9 And with Thamud who carved rocks in the valley;
89:10 And the mighty Pharaoh
89:11 Who terrorised the region,
89:12 And multiplied corruption.
89:13 So your Lord poured a scourge of punishment over them.
89:14 Your Lord is certainly in wait.
89:15 As for man, whenever his Lord tries him and then is gracious and provides good things for him, he says: "My Lord has been gracious to me."
89:16 But when He tries him by restraining his means, he says: "My Lord despises me."
89:17 No. In fact you are not generous to the orphans,
89:18 Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,
89:19 And you devour (others') inheritance greedily,
89:20 And love wealth with all your heart.
89:21 Surely when We pound the earth to powder grounded, pounded to dust,
89:22 And comes your Lord, and angels row on row,
89:23 And Hell is brought near, that day will man remember, but of what avail will then remembering be?
89:24 He will say: "Alas the woe! Would that I had sent ahead something in my life."
89:25 None can punish as He will punish on that day,
89:26 And none can bind as He will bind.
89:27 O you tranquil soul,
89:28 Return to your Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing Him.
89:29 "Enter then among My votaries,
89:30 Enter then My garden."
