Did you notice?
89:1  By the Dawn
89:2  by the ten nights
89:3  by the Even and the Odd
89:4  by the night when it departs
89:5  Is there an oath in that for one possessing intellect
89:6  Have you not regarded how your Lord dealt with [the people of] ‘a€d
89:7  [and] Iram, [the city] of the pillars
89:8  the like of which was not created among cities
89:9  and [the people of] Thamud, who hollowed out the rocks in the valley
89:10  and Pharaoh, the impaler
89:11  —those who rebelled [against Allah] in their citie
89:12  and caused much corruption in them
89:13  so your Lord poured on them lashes of punishment
89:14  Indeed your Lord is in ambush
89:15  As for man, whenever his Lord tests him and grants him honour and blesses him, he says, ‘My Lord has honoured me.&rsquo
89:16  But when He tests him and tightens for him his provision, he says, ‘My Lord has humiliated me.&rsquo
89:17  No indeed! Rather you do not honour the orphan
89:18  and do not urge the feeding of the needy
89:19  and you eat the inheritance rapaciously
89:20  and you love wealth with much fondness
89:21  No indeed! When the earth is levelled to a plain
89:22  and your Lord and the angels arrive in ranks
89:23  the day when hell is brought [near], on that day man will take admonition but what will the admonition avail him
89:24  He will say, ‘Alas, had I sent ahead for my life!&rsquo
89:25  On that day none shall punish as He punishes
89:26  and none shall bind as He binds
89:27  ‘O soul at peace
89:28  Return to your Lord, pleased, pleasing
89:29  Then enter among My servants
89:30  And enter My paradise!&rsquo
