(Revealed at Mecca – contains 30 verses – 1 section)

Bimsillah Hir Rahmaan Nir Raheem

Allah – beginning with the name of – the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

1 وَالْفَجْرِ
By oath of the (particular) dawn.
2 وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ
And by oath of ten nights.
3 وَالشَّفْعِ وَالْوَتْرِ
And by oath of the even and the odd.
4 وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَسْرِ
And by oath of the night when it recedes
5 هَلْ فِي ذَٰلِكَ قَسَمٌ لِّذِي حِجْرٍ
Why is there an oath in this, for the intelligent?
6 أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِعَادٍ
Did you not see how did your Lord deal with (the tribe of) Aad?
7 إِرَمَ ذَاتِ الْعِمَادِ
(And) the tall giants of Iram?
8 الَّتِي لَمْ يُخْلَقْ مِثْلُهَا فِي الْبِلَادِ
Like whom no one else was born in the cities.
9 وَثَمُودَ الَّذِينَ جَابُوا الصَّخْرَ بِالْوَادِ
And the tribe of Thamud, who hewed rocks in the valley.
10 وَفِرْعَوْنَ ذِي الْأَوْتَادِ

And with Firaun, who used to crucify.

11 الَّذِينَ طَغَوْا فِي الْبِلَادِ
Those who rebelled in the cities,
12 فَأَكْثَرُوا فِيهَا الْفَسَادَ
And who then spread a lot of turmoil in them.
13 فَصَبَّ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّكَ سَوْطَ عَذَابٍ
Therefore your Lord struck them hard with the means of punishment.
14 إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَبِالْمِرْصَادِ
Indeed nothing is hidden from the sight of your Lord.
15 فَأَمَّا الْإِنسَانُ إِذَا مَا ابْتَلَاهُ رَبُّهُ فَأَكْرَمَهُ وَنَعَّمَهُ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّي أَكْرَمَنِ
So man, whenever his Lord tests him by giving him honour and favours – thereupon he says, “My Lord has honoured me.”
16 وَأَمَّا إِذَا مَا ابْتَلَاهُ فَقَدَرَ عَلَيْهِ رِزْقَهُ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّي أَهَانَنِ
And if He tests him and restricts his livelihood – thereupon he says, “My Lord has degraded me!”
17 كَلَّا ۖ بَل لَّا تُكْرِمُونَ الْيَتِيمَ
Not at all – but rather you do not honour the orphan.
18 وَلَا تَحَاضُّونَ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ
And do not urge one another to feed the needy.
19 وَتَأْكُلُونَ التُّرَاثَ أَكْلًا لَّمًّا
And you readily devour the inheritance with greed.
20 وَتُحِبُّونَ الْمَالَ حُبًّا جَمًّا
And you harbour intense love for wealth.
21 كَلَّا إِذَا دُكَّتِ الْأَرْضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا
Most certainly – when the earth is smashed and blown to bits.
22 وَجَاءَ رَبُّكَ وَالْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا
And when the command of your Lord comes – and the angels row by row,
23 وَجِيءَ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِجَهَنَّمَ ۚ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ الْإِنسَانُ وَأَنَّىٰ لَهُ الذِّكْرَىٰ
And when hell is brought that day – on that day will man reflect, but where is the time now to think?
24 يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي قَدَّمْتُ لِحَيَاتِي
He will say, “Alas – if only I had sent some good deeds ahead, during my lifetime!”
25 فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَّا يُعَذِّبُ عَذَابَهُ أَحَدٌ
So on that day, no one punishes like He does!
26 وَلَا يُوثِقُ وَثَاقَهُ أَحَدٌ
And no one binds like He does!
27 يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ
O the contented soul!
28 ارْجِعِي إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً
Return towards your Lord – you being pleased with Him, and He pleased with you!
29 فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي
Then enter the ranks of My chosen bondmen!
30 وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي
And come into My Paradise!
