Dr. Munir Munshey rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 (I swear by) the dawn
89:2 The ten nights (of the month of ´Hajj´)
89:3 Even and odd (numbers)
89:4 And the night as it passes
89:5 Is there a (more solemn) vow for the sensible ones
89:6 Are you not aware of what your Lord did to the (people of) ´Aads´
89:7 Those well known for the high pillars (of their architecture)
89:8 Such that the likes of them had never been raised in other cities
89:9 And (how He dealt) with the people of ´Samood´, who hollowed out huge rocks (and built palaces) in the valley
89:10 And with the pharaoh wielding the kingdom
89:11 Those who transgressed and crossed all bounds in the lands
89:12 And vastly increased mischief and corruption in the land
89:13 So your Lord unleashed upon them the scourge of suffering
89:14 Indeed, your Lord is ever so vigilant
89:15 Such is man! When his Lord puts him through a test by granting him honor and a life of ease, he says, "My Lord has honored me!"
89:16 And when He tests him by restricting his means of livelihood, he says, "My Lord has disgraced me!"
89:17 Not at all! In fact, you do not treat the orphans kindly
89:18 Nor do you encourage each other to feed the poor
89:19 Greedily, you (misappropriate and) devour the inheritance (of the weak, the widows and the orphans)
89:20 You love wealth with all your heart
89:21 No, of course not! (On the day) when the earth is pounded repeatedly and crushed
89:22 And your Lord (Himself) comes down, along with His angels ranked in rows
89:23 And (the day) the hell is brought (in view), is the day when man shall remember clearly. But rememberance then will be of no avail
89:24 Man will say, "Alas! If only I had sent ahead of me (the good deeds) for this life of mine!"
89:25 No one can punish (as severely) as He will, that day
89:26 No one can tie up and bind as (securely as) He will (that day)
89:27 (The righteous would be told), "Oh you, the tranquil peaceful soul!"
89:28 "Return to your Lord contented and happy, having won His pleasure!"
89:29 "Join My (honored) servants!"
89:30 "And enter My (idyllic blissful) paradise!"
