Surah 89

Al Fajr
Surah 89. The Dawn, Daybreak

 

89:1 By the break of Day
Waalfajri
89:2 By the Nights twice five;
Walayalin AAashrin
89:3 By the even and odd (contrasted);
WaalshshafAAi waalwatri
89:4 And by the Night when it passeth away;-
Waallayli itha yasri
89:5 Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand?
Hal fee thalika qasamun lithee hijrin
89:6 Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the ‘Ad (people),-
Alam tara kayfa faAAala rabbuka biAAadin
89:7 Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars,
Irama thati alAAimadi
89:8 The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?
Allatee lam yukhlaq mithluha fee albiladi
89:9 And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?-
Wathamooda allatheena jaboo alssakhrabialwadi
89:10 And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes?
WafirAAawna thee al-awtadi
89:11 (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,
Allatheena taghaw fee albiladi
89:12 And heaped therein mischief (on mischief).
Faaktharoo feeha alfasada
89:13 Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements:
Fasabba AAalayhim rabbuka sawtaAAathabin
89:14 For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower.
Inna rabbaka labialmirsadi
89:15 Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), “My Lord hath honoured me.”
Faamma al-insanu itha maibtalahu rabbuhu faakramahu wanaAAAAamahu fayaqoolu rabbeeakramani
89:16 But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), “My Lord hath humiliated me!”
Waamma itha ma ibtalahufaqadara AAalayhi rizqahu fayaqoolu rabbee ahanani
89:17 Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans!
Kalla bal la tukrimoonaalyateema
89:18 Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!-
Wala tahaddoona AAala taAAamialmiskeeni
89:19 And ye devour inheritance – all with greed,
Wata/kuloona altturatha aklanlamman
89:20 And ye love wealth with inordinate love!
Watuhibboona almala hubbanjamman
89:21 Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder,
Kalla itha dukkati al-ardudakkan dakkan
89:22 And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,
Wajaa rabbuka waalmalaku saffansaffan
89:23 And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?
Wajee-a yawma-ithin bijahannamayawma-ithin yatathakkaru al-insanu waannalahu alththikra
89:24 He will say: “Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!”
Yaqoolu ya laytanee qaddamtu lihayatee
89:25 For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict,
Fayawma-ithin la yuAAaththibuAAathabahu ahadun
89:26 And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.
Wala yoothiqu wathaqahu ahadun
89:27 (To the righteous soul will be said:) “O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!
Ya ayyatuha alnnafsualmutma-innatu
89:28 “Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!
IrjiAAee ila rabbiki radiyatanmardiyyatan
89:29 “Enter thou, then, among My devotees!
Faodkhulee fee AAibadee
89:30 “Yea, enter thou My Heaven!
Waodkhulee jannatee
