بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ وَالفَجرِ(1)
By the break of Day(1)
وَلَيالٍ عَشرٍ(2)
By the Nights twice five;(2)
وَالشَّفعِ وَالوَترِ(3)
By the even and odd (contrasted);(3)
وَالَّيلِ إِذا يَسرِ(4)
And by the Night when it passeth away;-(4)
هَل فى ذٰلِكَ قَسَمٌ لِذى حِجرٍ(5)
Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand?(5)
أَلَم تَرَ كَيفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِعادٍ(6)
Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),-(6)
إِرَمَ ذاتِ العِمادِ(7)
Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars,(7)
الَّتى لَم يُخلَق مِثلُها فِى البِلٰدِ(8)
The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?(8)
وَثَمودَ الَّذينَ جابُوا الصَّخرَ بِالوادِ(9)
And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?-(9)

And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes?(10)
الَّذينَ طَغَوا فِى البِلٰدِ(11)
(All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,(11)
فَأَكثَروا فيهَا الفَسادَ(12)
And heaped therein mischief (on mischief).(12)
فَصَبَّ عَلَيهِم رَبُّكَ سَوطَ عَذابٍ(13)
Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements:(13)
إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَبِالمِرصادِ(14)
For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower.(14)
فَأَمَّا الإِنسٰنُ إِذا مَا ابتَلىٰهُ رَبُّهُ فَأَكرَمَهُ وَنَعَّمَهُ فَيَقولُ رَبّى أَكرَمَنِ(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."(15)
وَأَمّا إِذا مَا ابتَلىٰهُ فَقَدَرَ عَلَيهِ رِزقَهُ فَيَقولُ رَبّى أَهٰنَنِ(16)
But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!"(16)
كَلّا ۖ بَل لا تُكرِمونَ اليَتيمَ(17)
Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans!(17)
وَلا تَحٰضّونَ عَلىٰ طَعامِ المِسكينِ(18)
Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!-(18)
وَتَأكُلونَ التُّراثَ أَكلًا لَمًّا(19)
And ye devour inheritance - all with greed,(19)
وَتُحِبّونَ المالَ حُبًّا جَمًّا(20)
And ye love wealth with inordinate love!(20)
كَلّا إِذا دُكَّتِ الأَرضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا(21)
Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder,(21)
وَجاءَ رَبُّكَ وَالمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا(22)
And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,(22)
وَجِا۟يءَ يَومَئِذٍ بِجَهَنَّمَ ۚ يَومَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ الإِنسٰنُ وَأَنّىٰ لَهُ الذِّكرىٰ(23)
And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?(23)
يَقولُ يٰلَيتَنى قَدَّمتُ لِحَياتى(24)
He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!"(24)
فَيَومَئِذٍ لا يُعَذِّبُ عَذابَهُ أَحَدٌ(25)
For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict,(25)
وَلا يوثِقُ وَثاقَهُ أَحَدٌ(26)
And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.(26)
يٰأَيَّتُهَا النَّفسُ المُطمَئِنَّةُ(27)
(To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!(27)
ارجِعى إِلىٰ رَبِّكِ راضِيَةً مَرضِيَّةً(28)
