In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[89.1] I swear by the
[89.2] And the ten nights,
[89.3] And the even and the odd,
[89.4] And the night when it departs.
[89.5] Truly in that there is an oath for those who
[89.6] Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with
[89.7] (The people of) Aram, possessors of lofty
[89.8] The like of which were not created in the (other)
[89.9] And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the
[89.10] And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts,
[89.11] Who committed inordinacy in the cities,
[89.12] So they made great mischief therein?
[89.13] Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion
of the chastisement.
[89.14] Most sure!y your Lord is watching.
[89.15] And as for man, when his Lord tries him, then
treats him with honor and makes him lead an easy life, he says:
My Lord honors me.
[89.16] But when He tries him (differently), then
straitens to him his means of subsistence, he says: My Lord has
[89.17] Nay! but you do not honor the orphan,
[89.18] Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,
[89.19] And you eat away the heritage, devouring
[89.20] And you love wealth with exceeding love.
[89.21] Nay! when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,
[89.22] And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in
[89.23] And hell is made to appear on that day. On that
day shall man be mindful, and what shall being mindful (then)
[89.24] He shall say: O! would that I had sent before for
(this) my life!
[89.25] But on that day shall no one chastise with
(anything like) His chastisement,
[89.26] And no one shall bind with (anything like) His
[89.27] O soul that art at rest!
[89.28] Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with him),
[89.29] So enter among My servants,
[89.30] And enter into My garden.
