I swear by the early hours of the day,
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا سَجَىٰ
And the night when it covers with darkness.
مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَىٰ
Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor has He become displeased,
وَلَلْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَكَ مِنَ الْأُولَىٰ
And surely what comes after is better for you than that which has gone before.
وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ
And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.
أَلَمْ يَجِدْكَ يَتِيمًا فَآوَىٰ
Did He not find you an orphan and give you shelter?
وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَىٰ
And find you lost (that is, unrecognized by men) and guide (them to you)?
وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلًا فَأَغْنَىٰ
And find you in want and make you to be free from want?
فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلَا تَقْهَرْ
Therefore, as for the orphan, do not oppress (him).
وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلَا تَنْهَرْ
And as for him who asks, do not chide (him),
وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ
And as for the favor of your Lord, do announce (it).
