In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
By the dawn, وَٱلْفَجْرِ۝۱
and the ten nights, وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ ۝۲
and the even and the odd, وَٱلشَّفْعِ وَٱلْوَتْرِ ۝۳
and by the night when it departs. وَٱلَّيْلِ إِذَا يَسْرِ ۝۴
Is there in this an oath for one endowed with understanding? هَلْ فِى ذَٰلِكَ قَسَمٌ لِّذِى حِجْرٍ ۝۵
Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِعَادٍ ۝۶
of Iram, known for their lofty columns, إِرَمَ ذَاتِ ٱلْعِمَادِ ۝۷
the like of whom no nation was ever created in the lands of the world? ٱلَّتِى لَمْ يُخْلَقْ مِثْلُهَا فِى ٱلْبِلَٰدِ ۝۸
And how did He deal with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the valley? وَثَمُودَ ٱلَّذِينَ جَابُوا۟ ٱلصَّخْرَ بِٱلْوَادِ ۝۹
And with Pharaoh of the tent pegs وَفِرْعَوْنَ ذِى ٱلْأَوْتَادِ ۝۱۰
who transgressed in the countries of the world ٱلَّذِينَ طَغَوْا۟ فِى ٱلْبِلَٰدِ ۝۱۱
spreading in them much corruption? فَأَكْثَرُوا۟ فِيهَا ٱلْفَسَادَ ۝۱۲
Then their Lord unloosed upon them the lash of chastisement. فَصَبَّ عَلَيْهِمْ رَبُّكَ سَوْطَ عَذَابٍ ۝۱۳
Truly your Lord is ever watchful. إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَبِٱلْمِرْصَادِ ۝۱۴
As for man, when his Lord tests him by exalting him and bestowing His bounties upon him, he says: “My Lord has exalted me.” فَأَمَّا ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ إِذَا مَا ٱبْتَلَىٰهُ رَبُّهُۥ فَأَكْرَمَهُۥ وَنَعَّمَهُۥ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّىٓ أَكْرَمَنِ ۝۱۵
But when He tests him by straitening his sustenance, he says: “My Lord has humiliated me.” وَأَمَّآ إِذَا مَا ٱبْتَلَىٰهُ فَقَدَرَ عَلَيْهِ رِزْقَهُۥ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّىٓ أَهَٰنَنِ ۝۱۶
But no; you do not treat the orphan honourably, كَلَّا ۖ بَل لَّا تُكْرِمُونَ ٱلْيَتِيمَ ۝۱۷
and do not urge one another to feed the poor, وَلَا تَحَٰٓضُّونَ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ ٱلْمِسْكِينِ ۝۱۸
and greedily devour the entire inheritance, وَتَأْكُلُونَ ٱلتُّرَاثَ أَكْلًا لَّمًّا ۝۱۹
and love the riches, loving them ardently. وَتُحِبُّونَ ٱلْمَالَ حُبًّا جَمًّا ۝۲۰
But no; when the earth is ground to powder, كَلَّآ إِذَا دُكَّتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا ۝۲۱
and when your Lord appears with rows upon rows of angels, وَجَآءَ رَبُّكَ وَٱلْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا ۝۲۲
and when Hell is brought near that Day. On that Day will man understand, but of what avail will that understanding be? وَجِا۟ىٓءَ يَوْمَئِذٍۭ بِجَهَنَّمَ ۚ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ وَأَنَّىٰ لَهُ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰ ۝۲۳
He will say: “Would that I had sent ahead what would be of avail for this life of mine!” يَقُولُ يَٰلَيْتَنِى قَدَّمْتُ لِحَيَاتِى ۝۲۴
Then on that Day Allah will chastise as none other can chastise; فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَّا يُعَذِّبُ عَذَابَهُۥٓ أَحَدٌ ۝۲۵
and Allah will bind as none other can bind. وَلَا يُوثِقُ وَثَاقَهُۥٓ أَحَدٌ ۝۲۶
(On the other hand it will be said): “O serene soul! يَٰٓأَيَّتُهَا ٱلنَّفْسُ ٱلْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ ۝۲۷
Return to your Lord well-pleased (with your blissful destination), well-pleasing (to your Lord). ٱرْجِعِىٓ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً ۝۲۸
So enter among My (righteous) servants فَٱدْخُلِى فِى عِبَٰدِى ۝۲۹
and enter My Paradise.” وَٱدْخُلِى جَنَّتِى ۝۳۰
