Surah Ad-Duha (Chapter 93)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ


By the morning brightness,
وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا سَجَىٰ
And [by] the night when it covers with darkness,
مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَىٰ
Your Lord has not taken leave of you, [O Muhammad], nor has He detested [you].
وَلَلْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَّكَ مِنَ الْأُولَىٰ
And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life].
وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ
And your Lord is going to give you, and you will be satisfied.
أَلَمْ يَجِدْكَ يَتِيمًا فَآوَىٰ
Did He not find you an orphan and give [you] refuge?
وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَىٰ
And He found you lost and guided [you],
وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلًا فَأَغْنَىٰ
And He found you poor and made [you] self-sufficient.
فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلَا تَقْهَرْ
So as for the orphan, do not oppress [him].
وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلَا تَنْهَرْ
And as for the petitioner, do not repel [him].
وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ
But as for the favor of your Lord, report [it]
