Chapter 89:
Al-Fajr — The Daybreak:

Revealed at Makkah: 30 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


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

89:1 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 this is an oath for men of understanding.

89:6 Hast thou not considered how thy Lord dealt with ‘Ad,

89:7 (Of) Iram, having lofty buildings,

89:8 The like of which were not created in the land;

89:9 And (with) Thamud, who hewed out rocks in the valley;

89:10 And Pharaoh, the lord of hosts,

89:11 Who exceeded limits in the cities,

89:12 And made great mischief therein?

89:13 So thy Lord poured on them a portion of chastisement.

89:14 Surely thy Lord is Watchful;

89:15 As for man, when his Lord tries him, then gives him honour and favours him, he says: My Lord honours me.

89:16 But when He tries him, then straitens to him his subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me.

89:17 Nay, but you honour not the orphan,

89:18 Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,

89:19 And you devour heritage, devouring all,

89:20 And you love wealth with exceeding love.

89:21 Nay, when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,

89:22 And thy Lord comes with the angels, ranks on ranks;

89:23 And hell is made to appear that day. On that day man will be mindful, and of what use will being mindful be then?

89:24 He will say: O would that I had sent before for (this) my life!

89:25 But none can punish as He will punish on that day.

89:26 And none can bind as He will bind on that day.

89:27 O soul that art at rest,

89:28 Return to thy Lord, well-pleased, well-pleasing,

89:29 So enter among My servants,

89:30 And enter My Garden!
