Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Night(al-Layl)
92:1 By the night when she lets fall her darkness,
92:2 by the day in full splendour,
92:3 by Him who created the male and the female:
92:4 surely your endeavours have divergent ends.
92:5 As for him who gives and is God-fearing
92:6 and believes in the truth of the ultimate good,
92:7 We shall smooth the way to perfect ease.
92:8 But as for him who is a miser and deems himself self-sufficient,
92:9 and rejects the truth of the ultimate good,
92:10 We shall smooth the way to affliction.
92:11 What will his wealth avail him when he goes down [to his grave] .
92:12 It is for Us to give guidance,
92:13 and Ours is the life to come, and this first life.
92:14 I warn you, therefore, of the raging fire,
92:15 which none shall have to endure but the most hapless wretch,
92:16 who denies the truth and turns away.
92:17 Kept away from it will be him who is God- fearing,
92:18 who gives away his money to purify himself,
92:19 not in recompense of any favours done him by anyone.
92:20 but only out of a longing for the countenance of his Lord, the Most High.
92:21 He shall indeed be well pleased.
