89:1  By the dawn,
89:2  by the 10 nights (first 10 days of the month of Dhul-Hijja),
89:3  by the even and the odd (of all the creations of Allah),
89:4  and by the night when it departs!
89:5  Are there not in them (above oaths) sufficient proofs for the people of understanding?
89:6  Have you (O Muhammad) not seen how your Lord dealt with Ad (people)?
89:7  (Tall residents of) Iram with lofty pillars,
89:8  the like of which were not created like them in the land.
89:9  With Thamud (people), who cut out rocks in the valley (to make residences)?
89:10  With Pharaoh who had the stakes?
89:11  They all transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,
89:12  and made much mischief in it.
89:13  So your Lord poured on them different kinds of punishment.
89:14  Surely, your Lord is ever watchful (over them).
89:15  As for people, when their Lord tries them and gives them honor and bounties, they say: “Our Lord has honored us.”
89:16  But when He tries them through restricting their means of life, then they say: “Our Lord has humiliated us!”
89:17  Nay! But you did not treat the orphans with kindness and generosity,
89:18  nor did you encourage each other in feeding the poor!
89:19  You devour inheritance (of the weak) with greed,
89:20  and you love wealth with much love!
89:21  Nay! When the earth will be grounded to exceeding grinding (powder),
89:22  your Lord will come with the angels standing in rows,
89:23  hell will be brought near (in sight) that Day. On that Day people will remember (their deeds), but how the remembrance will avail them?
89:24  One will say: “Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for my life?”
89:25  On that Day, none will punish anymore except His punishment,
89:26  and none can bind anyone like His binding.
89:27  (It will be said to the pious): “O you the one in satisfaction!
89:28  Come back to your Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing (to Him).
89:29  Then you enter among My servants,
89:30  and you enter My Paradise!”
