Surah Ad-Dhuha (The Forenoon) - Aya count 11

وَٱلضُّحَىٰ ﴿١﴾

By the Glorious Morning Light,

وَٱلَّیۡلِ إِذَا سَجَىٰ ﴿٢﴾

And by the Night when it is still,-

مَا وَدَّعَكَ رَبُّكَ وَمَا قَلَىٰ ﴿٣﴾

Thy Guardian-Lord hath not forsaken thee, nor is He displeased.

وَلَلۡـَٔاخِرَةُ خَیۡرࣱ لَّكَ مِنَ ٱلۡأُولَىٰ ﴿٤﴾

And verily the Hereafter will be better for thee than the present.

وَلَسَوۡفَ یُعۡطِیكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرۡضَىٰۤ ﴿٥﴾

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

أَلَمۡ یَجِدۡكَ یَتِیمࣰا فَـَٔاوَىٰ ﴿٦﴾

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

وَوَجَدَكَ ضَاۤلࣰّا فَهَدَىٰ ﴿٧﴾

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

وَوَجَدَكَ عَاۤىِٕلࣰا فَأَغۡنَىٰ ﴿٨﴾

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

فَأَمَّا ٱلۡیَتِیمَ فَلَا تَقۡهَرۡ ﴿٩﴾

Therefore, treat not the orphan with harshness,

وَأَمَّا ٱلسَّاۤىِٕلَ فَلَا تَنۡهَرۡ ﴿١٠﴾

Nor repulse the petitioner (unheard);

وَأَمَّا بِنِعۡمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثۡ ﴿١١﴾

But the bounty of the Lord - rehearse and proclaim!
