The Holy Qur'an

Surah # 89 - Verses: 1 to 30  

" The Dawn, Daybreak " 

translated by A. Yusufali

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

1 . By the break of Day 

2 . By the Nights twice five; 

3 . By the even and odd (contrasted); 

4 . And by the Night when it passeth away;- 

5 . Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? 

6 . Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),- 

7 . Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars, 

8 . The like of which were not produced in (all) the land? 

9 . And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?- 

10 . And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes? 

11 . (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands, 

12 . And heaped therein mischief (on mischief). 

13 . Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements: 

14 . For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower. 

15 . Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honor and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me." 

16 . But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!" 

17 . Nay, nay! but ye honor not the orphans! 

18 . Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!- 

19 . And ye devour inheritance - all with greed, 

20 . And ye love wealth with inordinate love! 

21 . Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder, 

22 . And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank, 

23 . And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him? 

24 . He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!" 

25 . For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict,

26 . And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind. 

27 . (To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction! 

28 . "Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!

29 . "Enter thou, then, among My devotees!

30 . "Yea, enter thou My Heaven!
