Did you notice?
89:1  By oath of the (particular) dawn
89:2  And by oath of ten nights
89:3  And by oath of the even and the odd
89:4  And by oath of the night when it recede
89:5  Why is there an oath in this, for the intelligent
89:6  Did you not see how did your Lord deal with (the tribe of) Aad
89:7  (And) the tall giants of Iram
89:8  Like whom no one else was born in the cities
89:9  And the tribe of Thamud, who hewed rocks in the valley
89:10  And with Firaun, who used to crucify
89:11  Those who rebelled in the cities
89:12  And who then spread a lot of turmoil in them
89:13  Therefore your Lord struck them hard with the means of punishment
89:14  Indeed nothing is hidden from the sight of your Lord
89:15  So man, whenever his Lord tests him by giving him honour and favours – thereupon he says, “My Lord has honoured me.&rdquo
89:16  And if He tests him and restricts his livelihood – thereupon he says, “My Lord has degraded me!&rdquo
89:17  Not at all – but rather you do not honour the orphan
89:18  And do not urge one another to feed the needy
89:19  And you readily devour the inheritance with greed
89:20  And you harbour intense love for wealth
89:21  Most certainly - when the earth is smashed and blown to bits
89:22  And when the command of your Lord comes – and the angels row by row
89:23  And when hell is brought that day – on that day will man reflect, but where is the time now to think
89:24  He will say, “Alas – if only I had sent some good deeds ahead, during my lifetime!&rdquo
89:25  So on that day, no one punishes like He does
89:26  And no one binds like He does
89:27  O the contented soul
89:28  Return towards your Lord – you being pleased with Him, and He pleased with you
89:29  Then enter the ranks of My chosen bondmen
89:30  And come into My Paradise
