Islam / The Koran /
Sura 93: The Forenoon
Of Mecca

In the name of the merciful and compassionate God.

1 By the forenoon!

2 And the night when it darkens!

3 Thy Lord has not forsaken thee, nor hated thee! 4 And surely the hereafter is better for thee than the former; 5 and in the end thy Lord will give thee, and thou shalt be well pleased! 6 Did He not find thee an orphan, and give the shelter? 7 And find thee erring, and guide thee? 8 And find thee poor with a family, and nourish thee?

9 But as for the orphan oppress him not; 10 and as for the beggar drive him not away; 11 and as for the favour of thy Lord discourse thereof.
