In chapter ninety three
the chapter of the morning hours
my Lord swears by the morning light
that shines bright
and by the night
when it covers that light
He says, your Lord has neither left you
nor does He hate you
and surely the next life is better for you
far more precious
than this life that you hold dear
for your Lord has promised
that what is to come
is better than what has gone by
and that your Lord shall give you
until you are well-satisfied
and then more.
Did He not find you alone and give you shelter?
and He found you lost, and is your Guider?
and He found you needy and made you content?
so the orphan do not oppress
and the beggar do not drive him away
and the boundless favours of your Lord,
be grateful for.
