Did you notice?
89:1  By the Dawn
89:2  And the Ten Nights
89:3  And the Even and the Odd
89:4  And the night when it moves on to its close
89:5  Is there not in it strong evidence for one possessed of understanding
89:6  Hast thou not see how thy Lord dealt with Ad
89:7  The tribe if Iram, possessors of lofty buildings
89:8  The like of whom have not been created in these parts
89:9  And with Thamud who hewed out rocks in the valley
89:10  And with Pharaoh, lord of vast hosts
89:11  Who committed excesses in the cities
89:12  And wrought much corruption therein
89:13  Thy Lord, then, let loose on them the scourge of punishment
89:14  Surely, thy Lord is ever on the watch
89:15  As for man, when his Lord tries him and honours him and bestows favours on him, he says, `My Lord has honoured me.
89:16  But when HE tries and straitens for him his means of subsistence, he says, `My Lord has disgraced me.
89:17  Nay, but you honour not the orphan
89:18  And urge not one another to feed the poor
89:19  And devour the heritage of other people, devouring greedily and wholly
89:20  And you love wealth with exceeding love
89:21  Hearken ! when the earth is completely broken into pieces
89:22  And thy Lord comes attended by angels, rank on rank
89:23  And Hell is brought near that day; on that day man will remember, but of what avail shall that remembrance be to him
89:24  He will say, `O, would that I had sent on some good works for my life here !
89:25  So on that day none can punish like unto HIS punishment
89:26  And none can bind like unto HIS binding
89:27  O, thou soul at peace
89:28  Return to thy Lord, thou well-pleased with HIM and HE well-pleased with thee
89:29  So enter thou among MY chosen servants
89:30  And enter thou MY Garden
