The Holy Qur'an (Maulana Muhammad Ali)/93. The Brightness of the Day
93. The Brightness of the Day (Al-Duha)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
1 By the brightness of the day!
2 And the night when it is still! --
3 Thy Lord has not forsaken thee, not is He displeased.
4 And surely the latter state is better for thee than the former.
5 And soon will thy Lord give thee so that thou wilt be well pleased.
6 Did He not find thee an orphan and give (thee) shelter?
7 And find thee groping, so He showed the way?
8 And find thee in want, so He enriched thee?
9 Therefore the orphan, oppress not.
10 And him who asks, chide not.
11 And the favour of thy Lord, proclaim.
