Translation of Surah Duha:

“By the forenoon (after sun-rise); And by the night when it is still (or darkens); Your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither forsaken you nor hated you. And indeed the Hereafter is better for you than the present (life of this world). And verily, your Lord will give you (all i.e. good) so that you shall be well-pleased. Did He not find you (O Muhammad) an orphan and gave you a refuge? And He found you unaware (of the Qur’an, its legal laws, and Prophet hood, etc.) and guided you? And He found you poor, and made you rich (self-sufficient with self-contentment, etc.)? Therefore, treat not the orphan with oppression, And repulse not the beggar; And proclaim the Grace of your Lord (i.e. the Prophet hood and all other Graces)”

Surah Duha Meaning:

This Surah was revealed when Holy Prophet (SAWW) thought that he might had committed any mistake as the revelation stopped to come. Thus, in Surah Duha, consolation was given to the Prophet (SAWW). Firstly, by swearing an oath by forenoon or bright light and by stillness of night, it is stated beautifully that Allah has neither forsaken not hated the Holy Prophet (SAWW).

Then it is stated the Hereafter is better than this world’s life and Allah will give what is good to the Holy Prophet (SAWW) as Allah is addressing him here. Further, it is stated that Allah has been good to Muhammad (SAWW) since his birth. He was born orphan but he received love and upbringing. Prophet (SAWW) was shown the right path and made rich. Lastly, the Surah ends with Allah giving instructions to His Messenger (SAWW) to not to oppress orphans and not to repulse the beggar and proclaim the Grace of Allah (SWT).
