THE BRIGHTNESS (from Lawrence of Arabia)

Review of Dawood's translation of the Koran (link)

   

                   

And now, Selim, "The Brightness."



   

                   

"By the noonday brightness...



   

                   

...and by the night

when it darkeneth...



   

                   

...thy Lord hath not forsaken thee...



   

                   

...neither hath He been displeased.



   

                   

And surely the future shall be better

for thee than the past."



   

                   

"And in the end shall your Lord be

bounteous to thee...



   

                   

...and thou be satisfied."
