89:1  By the daw
89:2  and ten nights
89:3  by the even and the odd
89:4  by the night when it journeys on
89:5  Is there in that an oath for a mindful man
89:6  Hast thou not seen how thy Lord did with Ad
89:7  Iram of the pillars
89:8  the like of which was never created in the land
89:9  and Thamood, who hollowed the rocks in the valley
89:10  and Pharaoh, he of the tent-pegs
89:11  who all were insolent in the lan
89:12  and worked much corruption therein
89:13  Thy Lord unloosed on them a scourge of chastisement
89:14  surely thy Lord is ever on the watch
89:15  As for man, whenever his Lord tries him, and honours him, and blesses him, then he says, 'My Lord has honoured me.
89:16  But when he tries him and stints for him his provision, then he says, 'My Lord has despised me.
89:17  No indeed; but you honour not the orphan
89:18  and you urge not the feeding of the needy
89:19  and you devour the inheritance greedily
89:20  and you love wealth with an ardent lov
89:21  No indeed! When the earth is ground to powder
89:22  and thy Lord comes, and the angels rank on rank
89:23  and Gehenna is brought out, upon that day man will remember; and how shall the Reminder be for him
89:24  He shall say, 'O would that I had forwarded for my life!
89:25  Upon that day none shall chastise as He chastises
89:26  none shall bind as He binds
89:27  'O soul at peace
89:28  return unto thy Lord, well-pleased, well-pleasing
89:29  Enter thou among My servants
89:30  Enter thou My Paradise!
