The Holy Quran, tr. by Yusuf Ali, [1934] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful 1. By the Break of Day; 2. By the Nights twice five; 3. By the Even And Odd (contrasted); 4. And by the Night When it passeth away;— 5. Is there (not) in these An adjuration (or evidence) For those who understand? 6. Seest thou not How thy Lord dealt With the ‘Ād (people),— 7. Of the (city of) Iram, With lofty pillars, 8. The like of which Were not produced In (all) the land? 9. And with the Thamūd (People), who cut out (Huge) rocks in the-valley?— 10. And with Pharaoh, Lord of Stakes? 11. (All) these transgressed Beyond bounds in the lands. 12. And heaped therein Mischief (on mischief). 13. Therefore did thy Lord Pour on them a scourge Of diverse chastisements: 14. For thy Lord is (As a Guardian) On a watch-tower. 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" 16. But when he trieth him, Restricting his subsistence For him, then saith he (In despair), "My Lord Hath humiliated me I." 17. Nay, nay! But ye Honour not the orphans! 18. Nor do ye encourage One another To feed the poor!— 19. And ye devour Inheritance— All with greed, 20. And ye love wealth With inordinate love! 21. Nay! When the earth Is pounded to powder, 22. And thy Lord cometh, And His angels, Rank upon rank, 23. And Hell, that Day, Is brought (face to face),— On that Day will man Remember, but how will That remembrance profit him? 24. He will say: "Ah! Would that I had Sent forth (Good Deeds) For (this) my (Future) Life!" 25. For, that Day, His Chastisement will be Such as none (else) Can inflict, 26. And His bonds Will be such as None (other) can bind. 27. (To the righteous soul Will be said:) "O (thou) soul, In (complete) rest And satisfaction! 28. "Come back thou To thy Lord,— Well pleased (thyself), And well-pleasing Unto Him! 29. "Enter thou, then, Among my Devotees! 30. "Yea, enter thou My Heaven!

1 Sahil Badruddin = "The Quran (which literally means " the recitation" is meant to be recited due to its poetic and linguistic beauty. The recitation of the Sura Fajr: "
2 Sara Di Diego = "This Sura was written while persecution against Muslims was just starting.  Thus God mentions these things He made that are regulated (dawn, night, etc.), in order to show that God is very powerful and that should believe him.Work Cited:http://www.theonlyquran.com/quran/Al-Fajr/Maududi_Commentry"
3 Sara Di Diego = "The word used here is Fajr, which means "the time when the night has been ripped, and the light begins to come through the sky".  This is the time when animals wake up and birds start chirping, thus it is a time of rebirth since the night is like death.Work Cited:http://www.linguisticmiracle.com/tafsir/fajr"
4 Sara Di Diego = "10 is an important number in Islam.  There are 10 nights of Ramadan and 10 nights of Dhul Hijjah.  Also, the first and last 10 days of a month are when you can see the shiftings of the moon, and thus gives the most light.Work Cited:http://www.linguisticmiracle.com/tafsir/fajr"
5 Cary W = "Only God is good, yet being made in His Image and likeness, we are given great accountability for all we choose to do, speak and think. This passage reminds us to walk humbly before Him whom even the angels tremble, and to seek only His Highest pleasure: to love only Him, honor the orphans and feed the poor in our midst."
