I swear by (or call to witness) the daw
And by the nights twice five (of pilgrimage)
And the even and the odd
And the night when it passes on
Is there not in these a lesson (evidence or admonition) for a man of understanding
Have you not seen how your Lord did with the people of A´ad
With the city of Iram of the lofty pillars
The like of which has not been created in all the land
And with the people of Thamud when they hewed the great stones in the valley
And with Pharaoh, Lord of the stakes
All these were outrageous in the land
And did multiply wickedness therein
Therefore, your Lord poured out upon them the scourge of diverse torments
Verily, your Lord is ever watchful
Now as for man, whenever his Lord tries him and honours him and grants him favour, then he says, "My Lord has honoured me"
But whenever he tries him and restricts his subsistence, then he says, "My Lord despises me!"
Nay, nay! But you do not honour the orphan
Nor do you urge each other to feed the poor
And you devour the inheritance (of the weak) with greed
And you love wealth with an abounding love
Nay, when the earth is crushed to pieces
And your Lord comes with the angels, rank on rank
And Hell is brought near on that Day, on that Day shall man remember! But how shall the remembrance profit him
He will say, "Would that I had sent something forward for my life!"
But on that Day none shall punish as He punishes
And none shall be bound with bonds like his
But O, you soul in peace and fulfilment
Return unto your Lord, well pleased and well pleasing unto Him
Enter you amongst My servants
Enter you My Garden (Paradise)
