Sūrat al-Fajr (Arabic: سورة الفجر Sūrat ul-Faǧr, "The Dawn, Daybreak") is the 89th chapter (sura) of the Quran with 30 verses. The sura describes destruction of disbelieving peoples: the Ancient Egyptians, the people of Iram of the Pillars, and Mada'in Saleh. It condemns those who love wealth and look with disdain upon the poor and orphans. Righteous people are promised Paradise – the final verse says "And enter you My Paradise!". The Surah is so designated after the word wal-fajr with which it opens.
