CONSIDER the daybreak (1)
وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ

وَالشَّفْعِ وَالْوَتْرِ
Consider the multiple and the One! (3)
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَسْرِ
Consider the night as it runs its course! (4)
هَلْ فِي ذَٰلِكَ قَسَمٌ لِذِي حِجْرٍ
Considering all this – could there be, to anyone endowed with reason, a [more] solemn evidence of the truth? (5)
أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ فَعَلَ رَبُّكَ بِعَادٍ
ART THOU NOT aware of how thy Sustainer has dealt with [the tribe of] 'ād, (6)
إِرَمَ ذَاتِ الْعِمَادِ
[the people of] Iram the many-pillared, (7)
الَّتِي لَمْ يُخْلَقْ مِثْلُهَا فِي الْبِلَادِ

وَفِرْعَوْنَ ذِي الْأَوْتَادِ
