بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ وَالْعَصْرِ
I swear by the time,
By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),
By the declining day,
إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ
Most surely man is in loss,
Verily Man is in loss,
Lo! man is a state of loss,
إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ
Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience.
Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.
Save those who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to endurance.
