Did you notice?
89:1  By the dawn
89:2  And ten nights
89:3  And the even and the odd
89:4  And the night as it journeys on (towards an end)
89:5  Is there not in that a solemn oath for one endowed with reason (to reflect upon, so that it may guide him to the truth and keep him away from evils)
89:6  Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with the (tribe of) ‘Ad
89:7  (The people of) Iram with many-columned (i.e. monumental) buildings
89:8  The like of which had not been created in the land
89:9  And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who hewed rocks in the valley (to make dwellings)
89:10  And with the Pharaoh, who had formidable strongholds
89:11  (All of) these rebelled (and transgressed all bounds) in the lands (where they lived)
89:12  And increased manifold disorder and corruption therein
89:13  Therefore your Lord let loose on them a scourge of punishment (coming in different forms)
89:14  Your Lord is ever on the watch (over human and tests him in the blessings with which He favors him)
89:15  And so, human – when his Lord tries him by bestowing favors on him – says: "My Lord has honored me."
89:16  But whenever He tries him by straitening his means of livelihood, then he says, "My Lord has humiliated me."
89:17  No indeed! You (O people) do not treat the orphan with kindness and generosity
89:18  And do not urge one another to feed the destitute
89:19  And you consume inheritance (belonging to you or others) with greed (without distinction of the lawful and unlawful)
89:20  And you love wealth with a boundless ardor for it and for hoarding
89:21  No indeed! When the earth is pounded to dust with pounding after pounding
89:22  And your Lord comes (unveils His Power and Majesty), and the angels in row upon row
89:23  And on that Day Hell is brought (forward); on that Day human will come to understand (what being favored with bounties meant and how he should have responded), but what will that understanding (then) avail him
89:24  He will say: "Would that I had forwarded (some good deeds) for my life (to come)!"
89:25  None can punish as He will punish on that Day
89:26  And none can bind as He will bind (on that Day)
89:27  (But to the righteous God will say:) "O you soul at rest (content with the truths of faith and God’s commands and His treatment of His creatures)
89:28  "Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with Him and His treatment of you), and well-pleasing to Him
89:29  "Enter, then, among My servants (fully content with servanthood to Me)
89:30  "And enter my Paradise!"
