بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

وَالضُّحَى (1)

[93:1] I swear by the forenoon,

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا سَجَى (2)

[93:2] and by the night when it becomes peaceful,

مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَى (3)

[93:3] your Lord (O Prophet,) has neither forsaken you, nor has become displeased.

وَلَلآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَكَ مِنْ الأُولَى (4)

[93:4] Surely the Hereafter is much better for you than the present life.

وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَى (5)

[93:5] And of course, your Lord will give you so much that you will be pleased.

أَلَمْ يَجِدْكَ يَتِيماً فَآوَى (6)

[93:6] Did He not find you an orphan, and give you shelter?

وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالاًّ فَهَدَى (7)

[93:7] And He found you unaware of the way (the Sharī‗ah ), then He guided you.

وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلاً فَأَغْنَى (8)

[93:8] and He found you in need, then made you need-free.

فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلا تَقْهَرْ (9)

[93:9] Therefore, as for orphan, do not oppress him,

وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلا تَنْهَرْ (10)

[93:10] and as for the beggar, do not scold him.

وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ (11)

[93:11] And about the bounty of your Lord, do talk.
