89. THE DAWN ( DAYBREAK )

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 honor 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!
