بِسْمِ ٱللَّـهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the name of God, the Almighty,1 the Merciful.

وَٱلْفَجْرِ

892

1 By the dawn,1

وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ

2 And ten nights,1

وَٱلشَّفْعِ وَٱلْوَتْرِ

3 And the even and the odd,

وَٱلَّيْلِ إِذَا يَسْرِ

4 And the night when he1 departs!2

هَلْ فِى ذَٰلِكَ قَسَمٌ لِّذِى حِجْرٍ

5 Is there not in that an oath for one of intelligence?1

أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِعَادٍ

6 Hast thou not considered1 how thy Lord did with ʿĀd,

إِرَمَ ذَاتِ ٱلْعِمَادِ

7 Iram of the pillars,

ٱلَّتِى لَمْ يُخْلَقْ مِثْلُهَا فِى ٱلْبِلَـٰدِ

8 The like of which had never been created in the land,

وَثَمُودَ ٱلَّذِينَ جَابُوا۟ ٱلصَّخْرَ بِٱلْوَادِ

9 And Thamūd, who hollowed the rocks in the valley,

وَفِرْعَوْنَ ذِى ٱلْأَوْتَادِ

10 And Pharaoh,1 the Lord of Stakes

ٱلَّذِينَ طَغَوْا۟ فِى ٱلْبِلَـٰدِ

11 Who transgressed all bounds in the lands,

فَأَكْثَرُوا۟ فِيهَا ٱلْفَسَادَ

12 And increased corruption therein?

فَصَبَّ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّكَ سَوْطَ عَذَابٍ

13 So thy Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment.

إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَبِٱلْمِرْصَادِ

14 Thy Lord is ever watchful.1

فَأَمَّا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنُ إِذَا مَا ٱبْتَلَىٰهُ رَبُّهُۥ فَأَكْرَمَهُۥ وَنَعَّمَهُۥ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّىٓ أَكْرَمَنِ

15 And as for man, when his Lord tries him, and honours him, and favours him, he says: “My Lord has honoured me.”

وَأَمَّآ إِذَا مَا ٱبْتَلَىٰهُ فَقَدَرَ عَلَيْهِ رِزْقَهُۥ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّىٓ أَهَـٰنَنِ

16 But when He tries him, and straitens his provision, he says: “My Lord has humiliated me.”

كَلَّا بَل لَّا تُكْرِمُونَ ٱلْيَتِيمَ

17 No, indeed!1 The truth is,2 you honour not the fatherless,3

وَلَا تَحَـٰٓضُّونَ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ ٱلْمِسْكِينِ

18 Nor encourage one another to feed the needy,

وَتَأْكُلُونَ ٱلتُّرَاثَ أَكْلًا لَّمًّا

19 But consume the inheritance with greed,1

وَتُحِبُّونَ ٱلْمَالَ حُبًّا جَمًّا

20 And love wealth with much love.

كَلَّآ إِذَا دُكَّتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا

21 No, indeed!1 When the earth is ground to powder,2

وَجَآءَ رَبُّكَ وَٱلْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا

22 And thy Lord comes — and the angels, rank upon rank —

وَجِا۟ىٓءَ يَوْمَئِذٍۭ بِجَهَنَّمَ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ ٱلْإِنسَـٰنُ وَأَنَّىٰ لَهُ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰ

23 And Gehenna, that day, is brought: that day will man take heed; but how will the reminder be for him?

يَقُولُ يَـٰلَيْتَنِى قَدَّمْتُ لِحَيَاتِى

24 He will say: “Would that I had sent ahead for my life!”

فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَّا يُعَذِّبُ عَذَابَهُۥٓ أَحَدٌ

25 And — that day — none will punish as His punishment,

وَلَا يُوثِقُ وَثَاقَهُۥٓ أَحَدٌ

26 And none will bind as His binding.

يَـٰٓأَيَّتُهَا ٱلنَّفْسُ ٱلْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ

27 “O thou soul at peace:

ٱرْجِعِىٓ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً

28 “Return thou to thy Lord — well-pleased and well-pleasing,

فَٱدْخُلِى فِى عِبَـٰدِى

29 “And enter thou among My servants.

وَٱدْخُلِى جَنَّتِى

30 “And enter thou My Garden.”
