p. 1751


Dhuhā, or The Glorious Morning Light.

In the name of God, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

1. By the Glorious
Morning Light,

2. And by the Night
When it is still,—

3. Thy Guardian-Lord
Hath not forsaken thee,
Nor is He displeased,

4. And verily the hereafter
Will be better for thee
Than the present.

p. 1752

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.

p. 1753

9. Therefore, treat not
The orphan with harshness,

10. Nor repulse the petitioner

11. But the Bounty
Of thy Lord—
Rehearse and proclaim!

p. 1754
