In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

By the morning light

And by the night when it is still

Your Lord has not foresaken you and nor does he hate you

And verily the latter will be better for you then the former

And verily your Lord will give to you so that you will be content

Did He not find you as an orphan and protect (you)

Did He not find you wandering and direct (you)

Did He not find you destitute and enrich (you)

Therefore oppress not the ophan

Therefore drive noaway the beggar

Therefore of the bounty of your Lord be your discourse
