Yusuf Ali (Saudi Rev. 1985) rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the break of Da
89:2 By the Nights twice five
89:3 By the even and odd (contrasted)
89:4 And by the Night when it passeth away;
89:5 Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand
89:6 Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),
89:7 Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars
89:8 The like of which were not produced in (all) the land
89:9 And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?
89:10 And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes
89:11 (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands
89:12 And heaped therein mischief (on mischief)
89:13 Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements
89:14 For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower
89:15 Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me."
89:16 But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!"
89:17 Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans
89:18 Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!
89:19 And ye devour inheritance - all with greed
89:20 And ye love wealth with inordinate love
89:21 Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder
89:22 And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank
89:23 And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him
89:24 He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!"
89:25 For, that Day, His 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 will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction
89:28 "Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him
89:29 "Enter thou, then, among My devotees
89:30 "Yea, enter thou My Heaven
