by the 10 nights (first 10 days of the month of Dhul-Hijja),
by the even and the odd (of all the creations of Allah),
and by the night when it departs!
Are there not in them (above oaths) sufficient proofs for the people of understanding?
Have you (O Muhammad) not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad (people)?
(Tall residents of) Iram with lofty pillars,
the like of which were not created like them in the land.
With Thamud (people), who cut out rocks in the valley (to make residences)?
With Pharaoh who had the stakes?
They all transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,
and made much mischief in it.
So your Lord poured on them different kinds of punishment.
Surely, your Lord is ever watchful (over them).
As for people, when their Lord tries them and gives them honor and bounties, they say: “Our Lord has honored us.”
But when He tries them through restricting their means of life, then they say: “Our Lord has humiliated us!”
Nay! But you did not treat the orphans with kindness and generosity,
nor did you encourage each other in feeding the poor!
You devour inheritance (of the weak) with greed,
and you love wealth with much love!
Nay! When the earth will be grounded to exceeding grinding (powder),
your Lord will come with the angels standing in rows,
hell will be brought near (in sight) that Day. On that Day people will remember (their deeds), but how the remembrance will avail them?
One will say: “Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for my life?”
On that Day, none will punish anymore except His punishment,
and none can bind anyone like His binding.
(It will be said to the pious): “O you the one in satisfaction!
Come back to your Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing (to Him).
Then you enter among My servants,
and you enter My Paradise!”
