Surat Al-Fajr (The Dawn)

The Holy Quran - Surat Al-Fajr (The Dawn)

In the Name of Allah, Most Kind, Most Merciful

  1. By the down,
  2. And [by] the ten nights,
  3. And [by] the even and the odd,
  4. And [by] the night when it runs its course!
  5. Is there not on oath in this for men of understanding?
  6. Are you not aware of now your Lord has dealt with Aad –
  7. Iram – who had lofty pillars?
  8. The likes of whom has never been created in all the land?
  9. And [with] the Thamoud who carved out rocks in the volley?
  10. And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stokes?
  11. [All of] whom rebelled in the land,
  12. And increased corruption in it.
  13. So your Lord poured on them different kinds of severe punishment;
  14. Indeed, your Lord is Ever Watchful.
  15. As for man, when his Lord tries him with generosity and bounty, he says, “My Lord has honored me.”
  16. But when He tries him by restricting his provision, he says, “My Lord has humiliated me.”
  17. But no! You do not honor the orphans,
  18. And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor,
  19. And you eat up inheritance, devouring it with greed,
  20. And you love wealth with exceeding love.
  21. No! When the earth is levelled – pounded and crushed –
  22. And your Lord comes, and the angels, row after row, rank upon rank,
  23. And brought [within view], that Day, will be Hell – that Day man will remember, but what will that reminder avail him?
  24. He will say, “Oh I wish that I had sent ahead [Some good] for my life.”
  25. So on that Day none will punish [as severely] as His punishment,
  26. And no one will bind [as severely] as His binding (of the evildoers).
  27. [To the righteous it will be said,] “O reassured soul,
  28. Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him]
  29. And join the company of My [righteous] servants,
  30. And enter my Paradise.”

Quran - Surat  al-Ghaashiyah

In the Name of Allah, Most Kind, Most Merciful

  1. Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you?
  2. Some faces will on that day be humbled.
  3. Labouring, toiling endlessly:
  4. They will enter an intensely hot Fire:
  5. They will be given to drink from a boiling spring.
  6. For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant
  7. Which will neither nourish them, nor avail them against hunger.
  8. Other faces on that day will radiate with bliss,
  9. Well pleased with the fruit of their striving
  10. In a sublime garden,
  11. Where they will hear no empty talk.
  12. Therein there is a flowing spring.
  13. Therein will be couches raised high.
  14. And cups set at hand,
  15. And cushions arranged.
  16. And rich carpets spread around.
  17. Do they not then look at the camels how they are created?
  18. And the sky, how it is raised high?
  19. And at the mountains how they are fixed firm?
  20. And the earth how it is spread out?
  21. So remind [O Muhammad]; for you are only one who reminds;
  22. You are not set in authority over them;
  23. As for him who turns away and rejects the Truth.
  24. Allah will punish him with the most terrible punishment.
  25. Indeed, to Us will be their return.
  26. Then indeed, upon us will be the account.
