Did you notice?
89:1  I swear by the dawn
89:2  and by Ten Nights
89:3  and by the even and the odd
89:4  and by the night when it moves away
89:5  __Is there (not) in such an oath (enough assurance) for a man of sense?_
89:6  Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with (the people) of ‘A
89:7  of Iram , the men of tall pillars
89:8  the like of whom were never created in the lands
89:9  and (how He dealt) with (the people of) Thamud who had carved out the rocks in the Valley (of Qura)
89:10  and with Fir‘aun (Pharaoh), the man of the stakes
89:11  __ those who had rebelled in the cities
89:12  and spread a lot of mischief therein
89:13  So, your Lord let loose on them the whip of torment
89:14  Surely your Lord is ever on the watch
89:15  As for man, when his Lord tests him, and thus gives him honour and bounties, he says, .My Lord has honoured me
89:16  But when he tests him, and thus straitens his provision for him, he says, .My Lord has disgraced me
89:17  No! But you do not honour the orphan
89:18  and do not encourage one another to feed the needy
89:19  And you devour the inheritance with a sweeping gulp
89:20  and love wealth, an excessive love
89:21  No! When the earth will be crushed thoroughly to be turned into bits
89:22  and your Lord will come, and the angels as well, lined up in rows
89:23  and Jahannam (Hell), on that day, will be brought forward, it will be the day when man will realize the truth, but from where will he take advantage of such realization
89:24  He will say, .O Would that I had sent ahead (some good deeds) for (this) my life!
89:25  So no one can punish like He will punish, that day
89:26  nor can anyone shackle like He will shackle
89:27  (As for an obedient man, it will be said to him,) .O content soul
89:28  come back to your Lord, well-pleased, well-pleasing
89:29  So, enter among My (special) servants
89:30  and enter My Paradise
