Did you notice?
You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
and the even and the odd
and the night when it travels.
For one who has sense, these (items) are surely worth being sworn by.
Did you not see how your Fosterer dealt with Aad,
people of Iram, possessors of (lofty buildings supported by) pillars,
the like of which was not created in (other) cities,
and Samood who cut the rocks in the valley,
and Firawn, possessor of pegs,
who rebelled in the cities?
Thus they increased corruption in them.
So your Fosterer poured on them a portion of the punishment.
Your Fosterer is certainly watchfully waiting.
So as for man, whenever his Fosterer tries him by honouring him and favouring him, then he says, “My Fosterer has honoured me.”
And as for (the situation) when He tries him by straitening on him his provision, he says, “My Fosterer has disgraced me.”
No, but the orphan is not honoured by you,
and you do not urge one another on the feeding of the poor,
and you eat off the inheritance, eating it greedily,
and you love wealth with intense love.
No, when the earth is crushed to level it in a level,
and your Fosterer comes with the angels in rank after rank,
so on that day, hell will be brought near, (and) on that day man will be mindful. But his being mindful (on that day) will be of no use to him.
He will say, "I wish I had sent (good deeds) before, for my life (after death).
So on that day, no one’s punishment will be like His punishment,
and no one's binding will be like His binding.
O you peaceful soul!
Return to your Fosterer pleased and pleasing (Him),
so enter among My servants,
and enter My garden.
