Quran Chapters Index

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.
