by the even and the odd
and by the night as it recedes,
is there not in [all] that an oath for a rational person?
Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Aad,
with Iram of the pillars,
whose like was never created in any land,
with Thamud, those who carved the rocks in the valley
And with Pharaoh, of the stakes?
All of them committed excesses in the lands,
and spread much corruption there.
So your Lord poured on them a scourge of punishment.
Your Lord is always watchful.
As for human being, whenever his Lord tests him, by honoring him, and blessing him, he says, "My Lord has honored me."
But when He tries him, and restricts his provision for him, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me."
Not at all! It is you who are not generous with the orphans,
and you do not urge one another to feed the needy
you who devour the inheritance [of others] with obvious greed
and you who passionately love wealth.
No indeed! When the earth is crushed, pounded and crushed
and your Lord comes with the angels, row after row,
on that Day, Hell will be brought near. On that Day, the human being will remember, but what good will that be to him then?
He will say, "I wish I had provided for this life to come."
On that Day, none will punish as He punishes.
And none will shackle as severely as He shackles.
[To the righteous it will be said], "Tranquil soul,
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him],
go in among My worshipers,
and into My Garden."
