Surah 107

Qur'anic calligraphy

Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
Ara ayta ladhee ukadhibu bid Deen
Fa dhaalikal ladhee yadu’ul yateem
Wa laa yahuddu ‘alaa ta’aamil miskeen
Fa wailun lil musalleen
Alladheena hum’ an salaatihim saahuun
Alladheena hum yuraa uun
Wa yamna ‘uunal maa’uun

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Do you see the one who denies the reckoning?
Who shuns the orphan
and forgets the hungry?
Woe to those who worship
but who worship mindlessly
and only to be seen,
and fail in neighborly kindness.

Translated by Kabir Helminski
