89:1 - By the Dawn
89:2 - And ten nights,
89:3 - And the Even and the Odd,
89:4 - And the night when it departeth,
89:5 - There surely is an oath for thinking man.
89:6 - Dost thou not consider how thy Lord dealt with (the tribe of) A'ad,
89:7 - With many-columned Iram,
89:8 - The like of which was not created in the lands;
89:9 - And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley;
89:10 - And with Pharaoh, firm of might,
89:11 - Who (all) were rebellious (to Allah) in these lands,
89:12 - And multiplied iniquity therein?
89:13 - Therefore thy Lord poured on them the disaster of His punishment.
89:14 - Lo! thy Lord is ever watchful.
89:15 - As for man, whenever his Lord trieth him by honouring him, and is gracious unto him, he saith: My Lord honoureth me.
89:16 - But whenever He trieth him by straitening his means of life, he saith: My Lord despiseth me.
89:17 - Nay, but ye (for your part) honour not the orphan
89:18 - And urge not on the feeding of the poor.
89:19 - And ye devour heritages with devouring greed.
89:20 - And love wealth with abounding love.
89:21 - Nay, but when the earth is ground to atoms, grinding, grinding,
89:22 - And thy Lord shall come with angels, rank on rank,
89:23 - And hell is brought near that day; on that day man will remember, but how will the remembrance (then avail him)?
89:24 - He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for my life!
89:25 - None punisheth as He will punish on that day!
89:26 - None bindeth as He then will bind.
89:27 - But ah! thou soul at peace!
89:28 - Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure!
89:29 - Enter thou among My bondmen!
89:30 - Enter thou My Garden!
