Did you notice?
89:1  By the daybreak
89:2  And ten nights
89:3  And the even and the odd
89:4  And the night as it recedes
89:5  Is there in this an oath for a rational person
89:6  Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with Aad
89:7  Erum of the pillars
89:8  The like of which was never created in the land
89:9  And Thamood—those who carved the rocks in the valley
89:10  And Pharaoh of the Stakes
89:11  Those who committed excesses in the lands
89:12  And spread much corruption therein
89:13  So your Lord poured down upon them a scourge of punishment
89:14  Your Lord is on the lookout
89:15  As for man, whenever his Lord tests him, and honors him, and prospers him, he says, 'My Lord has honored me.'
89:16  But whenever He tests him, and restricts his livelihood for him, he says, 'My Lord has insulted me.'
89:17  Not at all. But you do not honor the orphan
89:18  And you do not urge the feeding of the poor
89:19  And you devour inheritance with all greed
89:20  And you love wealth with immense love
89:21  No—when the earth is leveled, pounded, and crushed
89:22  And your Lord comes, with the angels, row after row
89:23  And on that Day, Hell is brought forward. On that Day, man will remember, but how will remembrance avail him
89:24  He will say, 'If only I had forwarded for my life.'
89:25  On that Day, none will punish as He punishes
89:26  And none will shackle as He shackles
89:27  But as for you, O tranquil soul
89:28  Return to your Lord, pleased and accepted
89:29  Enter among My servants
89:30  Enter My Paradise
