And the even and the odd
And by the night as it passes
Is there in this an oath for one with understanding?
Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with AAa
[The anscient people] of Iram, [city of] lofty-pillared buildings
Like which no city had ever been created on the lands
And [another ancient people of] Thamood who hewed the rocks in the valley [to carve out buildings therefrom]
And Pharaoh of the many tent pegs (i.e. with means and power)
Who committed transgression in the lands
They often spread anarchy in them
Then their Lord lashed them with whip of punishment
Indeed, your Lord is ever watchful
Then as his Lord tests him by bestowing honour and bounties upon him, man says, "My Lord has honoured me!"
And as He tests him by restricting his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me!"
No! On the contrary, you do not treat the orphan honourably
And urge not one another to feed the poor
And devour the inheritance — devouring it all
And love the worldly wealth — loving it immensely
[And] no, [the Lord does not restrict His provisions to man to humiliate him]! When the earth is pounded to make it level
And when your Lord reveals Himself with rows upon rows of angels
And Hell brought near, that Day will man remember [what the Qur'aan had told him]! Of what avail will that remembering be to him
Man will say, "Would that I had sent ahead for this life of mine!"
Then, on that Day, Allah will punish him as none other can
And bind him as none other can
"O you contented soul!"
"Return to your Lord pleased [with yourself], pleasing (to your Lord)."
"Enter then to be among My devotees!"
"And enter My Garden!" ,
