Did you notice?
89:1  By the morning
89:2  and the ten nights (first ten days of Dhul-Hijja)
89:3  the even and the odd
89:4  and the night when it departs
89:5  Is there not in these an oath (enough evidence) for those who use their common sense
89:6  Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with ‘Ad
89:7  The residents of Iram, the city of lofty pillars
89:8  the like of which had never been built in other cities
89:9  And with the people of Thamud who hewed out their dwellings in the rocks of the valley
89:10  And with Pharaoh the owner of stakes
89:11  They all transgressed beyond bounds in their cities
89:12  and committed great mischief therein
89:13  Therefore, your Lord let loose on them His scourge of torment
89:14  Surely your Lord is ever watchful
89:15  As for man, when his Lord tries him through giving him honor and blessings, he says: "My Lord is bountiful to me."
89:16  But when He tries him through restricting his subsistence, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me."
89:17  Nay! But you did not show kindness to the orphan
89:18  nor did you encourage each other in feeding the poor
89:19  Greedily you lay your hands on the inheritance of the weak
89:20  and you love wealth with all your hearts
89:21  Nay! You should know, when the earth will be pounded to powder
89:22  your Lord will come, with angels standing in ranks
89:23  hell shall be brought in sight. On that Day man will remember his deeds, but how is that remembrance going to profit him
89:24  He will say: "Alas! Would that I had sent forth some good deeds for this life of mine."
89:25  None can punish as Allah will punish on that Day
89:26  and none can bind as He will bind
89:27  To the righteous soul it will be said: "O fully satisfied soul
89:28  Return to your Lord, well pleased with Him and well-pleasing to Him
89:29  Join My servants
89:30  and enter My paradise."
