N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 BY THE Daw
89:2 and the Ten Nights¹
89:3 by that which is dual, and that which is single
89:4 by the night, as it journeys on
89:5 Is there not in this a mighty oath for a man of sense
89:6 Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with ‘Ād
89:7 The many-columned city of Iram
89:8 whose like has never been created in the land
89:9 And Thamūd, who hewed out their dwellings among the rocks of the valley
89:10 And Pharaoh, who impaled his victims upon the stake
89:11 They had all led sinful lives
89:12 and made the land teem with wickedness
89:13 Therefore your Lord let loose on them the scourge of a torment
89:14 for from His eminence your Lord observes all
89:15 As for man, when his Lord tests him by honouring him and bestowing blessings on him, he says: ‘My Lord has honoured me.&lsquo
89:16 But when He tests him by diminishing his provisions, he says: ‘My Lord despises me.&lsquo
89:17 No! But you show no kindness to the orphan
89:18 nor do you vie with each other in feeding the destitute
89:19 Greedily you lay your hands on the inheritance of the weak
89:20 and you love riches with all your hearts
89:21 No! But when the earth is crushed to fine dust
89:22 and your Lord comes down with the angels, in their ranks
89:23 and Hell is on that day brought near ― on that day man will remember. And what will remembrance avail him
89:24 He will say: ‘Would that I had been charitable in my lifetime!&lsquo
89:25 But on that day none will punish as He will punish
89:26 and none will bind with chains like His
89:27 O serene soul
89:28 Return to your Lord, well pleased, and pleasing in His sight
89:29 Join My servant
89:30 and enter My Paradise
