Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Dawn, Daybreak(al-Fajr)
89:1 By the dawn
89:2 and ten nights,
89:3 and the even and odd,
89:4 and the night when it travels on,
89:5 is there not in that an oath for the intelligent?
89:6 Do you not see what your Lord did with ´Ad —
89:7 Iram of the Columns
89:8 whose like was not created in any land —
89:9 and Thamud who carved out rocks in the valley-side,
89:10 and Pharaoh of the Stakes,
89:11 all of whom were tyrants in their lands
89:12 and caused much corruption in them?
89:13 So your Lord unleashed on them a scourging punishment;
89:14 your Lord is always lying in wait.
89:15 As for man, when his Lord tests him by honouring him and favouring him, he says, ´My Lord has honoured me!´
89:16 But then when He tests him by restricting his provision, he says, ´My Lord has humiliated me!´
89:17 No indeed! You do not honour orphans
89:18 nor do you urge the feeding of the poor;
89:19 you devour inheritance with voracious appetites
89:20 and you have an insatiable love of wealth.
89:21 No indeed! When the earth is crushed and ground to dust
89:22 and your Lord arrives with the angels rank upon rank
89:23 and that Day Hell is produced, that Day man will remember; but how will the remembrance help him?
89:24 He will say, ´Oh! If only I had prepared in advance for this life of mine!´
89:25 That Day no one will punish as He punishes
89:26 and no one will shackle as He shackles.
89:27 ´O self at rest and at peace,
89:28 return to your Lord, well-pleasing and well-pleased!
89:29 Enter among My slaves!
89:30 Enter My Garden.´
