The Koran Interpreted Translation by A.J. Arberry

93 THE FORENOON (1 – 11)

The Qurʾan Translation by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

93. The Morning Brightness (1 – 11)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

By the white forenoon and the brooding night! 5Thy Lord has neither forsaken thee nor hates thee and the Last shall be better for thee than the First. Thy Lord shall give thee, and thou shalt be satisfied.

Did He not find thee an orphan, and shelter thee? Did He not find thee erring, and guide thee? Did He not find thee needy, and suffice thee?

10As for the orphan, do not oppress him, and as for the beggar, scold him not; and as for thy Lord's blessing, declare it.

An early Meccan sura addressed to the Prophet, to reassure him, when he had not received revelation for some time, that his Lord had not forsaken him.

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

1By the morning brightness 2and by the night when it grows still, 3your Lord has not forsaken you [Prophet], nor does He hate you, 4and the future will be better for you than the past; 5your Lord is sure to give you so much that you will be well satisfied. 6Did He not find you an orphan and shelter you? 7Did He not find you lost and guide you?8Did He not find you in need and make you self-sufficient?

9So do not be harsh with the orphan 10and do not chide the one who asks for help; 11talk about the blessings of your Lord.
