Did you notice?
89:1  By the dawn
89:2  By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Heejjah)
89:3  And by the even and the odd (of all the creations of Allah)
89:4  And by the night when it departs
89:5  There is indeed in them (the above oaths) sufficient proofs for men of understanding (and that, they should avoid all kinds of sins and disbeliefs, etc.)
89:6  Did you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) not see (thought) how your Lord dealt with Ad (people)
89:7  Who were very tall like lofty pillars
89:8  The like of which were not created in the land
89:9  And (with) Thamood (people), who cut (hewed) out rocks in the valley (to make dwellings)
89:10  And (with) Firaun (Pharaoh), who had pegs (who used to torture men by binding them to pegs)
89:11  Who did transgress beyond bounds in the lands (in the disobedience of Allah)
89:12  And made therein much mischief
89:13  So your Lord poured on them different kinds of severe torment
89:14  Verily, your Lord is Ever Watchful (over them)
89:15  As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me."
89:16  But when He tries him, by straitening his means of life, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!"
89:17  Nay! But you treat not the orphans with kindness and generosity (i.e. you neither treat them well, nor give them their exact right of inheritance)
89:18  And urge not on the feeding of AlMiskeen (the poor)
89:19  And you devour inheritance all with greed
89:20  And you love wealth with much love
89:21  Nay! When the earth is ground to powder
89:22  And your Lord comes with the angels in rows
89:23  And Hell will be brought near that Day. On that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance (then) avail him
89:24  He will say: "Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my life!"
89:25  So on that Day, none will punish as He will punish
89:26  And none will bind as He will bind
89:27  (It will be said to the pious): "O (you) the one in (complete) rest and satisfaction
89:28  "Come back to your Lord, Well-pleased (yourself) and well-pleasing unto Him
89:29  "Enter you, then, among My honoured slaves
89:30  "And enter you My Paradise!"
