وَالضُّحَىٰ
CONSIDER the bright morning hours, (1)
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا سَجَىٰ
and the night when it grows still and dark. (2)
مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَىٰ
Thy Sustainer has not forsaken thee, nor does He scorn thee: (3)
وَلَلْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَكَ مِنَ الْأُولَىٰ
for, indeed, the life to come will be better for thee than this earlier part [of thy life]! (4)
وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ
And, indeed, in time will thy Sustainer grant thee [what thy heart desires], and thou shalt be well-pleased. (5)
أَلَمْ يَجِدْكَ يَتِيمًا فَآوَىٰ
Has He not found thee an orphan, and given thee shelter? (6)
وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَىٰ
And found thee lost on thy way, and guided thee? (7)
وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلًا فَأَغْنَىٰ
And found thee in want, and given thee sufficiency? (8)
فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلَا تَقْهَرْ
Therefore, the orphan shalt thou never wrong, (9)
وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلَا تَنْهَرْ
and him that seeks [thy] help shalt thou never chide, (10)
