Book 89


The Daybreak

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[89.1]

I swear by the daybreak,

[89.2]

And the ten nights,

[89.3]

And the even and the odd,

[89.4]

And the night when it departs.

[89.5]

Truly in that there is an oath for those who possess understanding.

[89.6]

Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Ad,

[89.7]

(The people of) Aram,
possessors of lofty buildings,

[89.8]

The like of which were not created in the (other) cities;

[89.9]

And (with) Samood,
who hewed out the rocks in the valley,

[89.10]

And (with) Firon,
the lord of hosts,

[89.11]

Who committed inordinacy in the cities,

[89.12]

So they made great mischief therein?

[89.13]

Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement.

[89.14]

Most sure!
y your Lord is watching.

[89.15]

And as for man,
when his Lord tries him,
then treats him with honor and makes him lead an easy life,
he says:
My Lord honors me.

[89.16]

But when He tries him (differently),
then straitens to him his means of subsistence,
he says:
My Lord has disgraced me.

[89.17]

Nay!
but you do not honor the orphan,

[89.18]

Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,

[89.19]

And you eat away the heritage,
devouring (everything) indiscriminately,

[89.20]

And you love wealth with exceeding love.

[89.21]

Nay!
when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,

[89.22]

And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks,

[89.23]

And hell is made to appear on that day.
On that day shall man be mindful,
and what shall being mindful (then) avail him?

[89.24]

He shall say:
O!
would that I had sent before for (this) my life!

[89.25]

But on that day shall no one chastise with (anything like) His chastisement,

[89.26]

And no one shall bind with (anything like) His binding.

[89.27]

O soul that art at rest!

[89.28]

Return to your Lord,
well-pleased (with him),
well-pleasing (Him),

[89.29]

So enter among My servants,

[89.30]

And enter into My garden.
