Maududi rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the dawn
89:2 and the ten nights
89:3 and the even and the odd
89:4 and by the night when it departs
89:5 Is there in this an oath for one endowed with understanding
89:6 Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with A
89:7 of Iram, known for their lofty columns
89:8 the like of whom no nation was ever created in the lands of the world
89:9 And how did He deal with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the valley
89:10 And with Pharaoh of the tent peg
89:11 who transgressed in the countries of the worl
89:12 spreading in them much corruption
89:13 Then their Lord unloosed upon them the lash of chastisement
89:14 Truly your Lord is ever watchful
89:15 As for man, when his Lord tests him by exalting him and bestowing His bounties upon him, he says: "My Lord has exalted me."
89:16 But when He tests him by straitening his sustenance, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me."
89:17 But no; you do not treat the orphan honourably
89:18 and do not urge one another to feed the poor
89:19 and greedily devour the entire inheritance
89:20 and love the riches, loving them ardently
89:21 But no; when the earth is ground to powder
89:22 and when your Lord appears with rows upon rows of angels
89:23 and when Hell is brought near that Day. On that Day will man understand, but of what avail will that understanding be
89:24 He will say: "Would that I had sent ahead what would be of avail for this life of mine!"
89:25 Then on that Day Allah will chastise as none other can chastise
89:26 and Allah will bind as none other can bind
89:27 (On the other hand it will be said): "O serene soul
89:28 Return to your Lord well-pleased (with your blissful destination), well-pleasing (to your Lord)
89:29 So enter among My (righteous) servant
89:30 and enter My Paradise."
