The Holy Qu'ran
Translation by Abdullah Yousuf Ali


Ad-Duha ; Early Hours of Morning

Surah 93 (Chapter 93); 11 Verses

Makki ; Revealed at Mecca

1. By the Glorious Morning Light.

2. And by the Night when it is still

3. The guardian-Lord Hath not forsaken thee Nor is He displeased.

4. And verily the hereafter will be better for thee than the present.

5. And soon will thy Guardian-Lord give thee (that wherewith) thou shalt be well-pleased.

6. Did He not find thee an orphan and give thee shelter (and care)?

7. And He found thee wandering and He gave thee guidance.

8. And He found thee in need and made thee independent.

9. Therefore treat not the orphan with harshness

10. Nor repulse the petitioner (Unheard);

11. But the Bounty of thy Lord Rehearse and proclaim!
