089 : The Dawn

89:1
By the break of Day

89:2
By the Nights twice five;

89:3
By the even and odd (contrasted);

89:4
And by the Night when it passeth away;-

89:5
Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand?

89:6
Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),-

89:7
Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars,

89:8
The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?

89:9
And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?-

89:10
And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes?

89:11
(All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,

89:12
And heaped therein mischief (on mischief).

89:13
Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements:

89:14
For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower.

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."

89:16
But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!"

89:17
Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans!

89:18
Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!-

89:19
And ye devour inheritance - all with greed,

89:20
And ye love wealth with inordinate love!

89:21
Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder,

89:22
And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,

89:23
And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?

89:24
He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!"

89:25
For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict,

89:26
And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.

89:27
(To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!

89:28
"Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!

89:29
"Enter thou, then, among My devotees!

89:30
"Yea, enter thou My Heaven!
