A.L. Bilal Muhammad et al (2018) rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
---
89:1 By the dawn,
89:2 By the ten nights,
89:3 By the even and odd,
89:4 And by the night when it passes away.
89:5 Is there not in these an oath for those who understand?
89:6 Do you not see how your Lord dealt with the ‘Ad?
89:7 Of Iram, with lofty pillars,
89:8 The like of which were not produced in all the land?
89:9 And with the Thamud, who carved out rocks in the valley?
89:10 And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes?
89:11 All of these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,
89:12 And spread corruption therein.
89:13 Therefore your Lord poured on them a scourge of diverse chastisements.
89:14 For your Lord is on a watchtower.
89:15 Now, as for humanity, when their Lord tries them, giving them honor and gifts, they then say, “My Lord has honored me.”
89:16 But when He tries them, restricting subsistence from them, he says then, “My Lord has humiliated me.”
89:17 But no, you do not honor the orphans.
89:18 Nor do you encourage one another to feed the poor.
89:19 And you devour inheritance, all with greed,
89:20 And you love wealth with inordinate love.
89:21 No, when the earth is pounded to powder,
89:22 And your Lord comes, and His angels, rank upon rank,
89:23 And hell, that day, is brought forth, on that day will the human being remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?
89:24 He will say, “I wish that I had invested in my life.”
89:25 For that day, their chastisement will be such as none else can inflict,
89:26 And His bonds will be such as none other can bind.
89:27 To the righteous soul it will be said, “O you soul in complete rest and satisfaction.
89:28 “Come back to your Lord, well pleased, and well-pleasing.
89:29 “Enter then among My devotees.
89:30 “Yes, enter My paradise.
