89:1  By the dawn,
89:2  The ten nights,
89:3  The even and odd numbers,
89:4  And the night when it passes.
89:5  Is this not a sufficient oath for highly intelligent one?
89:6  Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with (the people of) ‘A'ad’,
89:7  (With) ‘Iram’, the city of the pillars
89:8  The like of which had never been created in the land?
89:9  (With people of) ‘Thamūd’, who hewed out the rocks in the valley
89:10  And with ‘Pharaoh’, lord of stakes?
89:11  All of them went beyond the bounds (of moral & divine principles) in the lands,
89:12  And increased therein the corruption.
89:13  Thus, your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment.
89:14  Indeed, your Lord is Ever Watchful.
89:15  As for man, whenever his Lord tries him, then treats him with honor and gives him great comfort and extravagant living, he would say: "My Lord has honored me."
89:16  But, whenever He tries him differently by straitening his means of livings, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!"
89:17  Nay! but you honor not the orphan,
89:18  Neither do you exhort one another to feed the poor.
89:19  You devour greedily the inheritance of others indiscriminately,
89:20  And you have immense love for wealth.
89:21  Nay! When the earth is made to crumble into dust,
89:22  And your Lord will come with ‘Angels’, rank on rank,
89:23  On that day, ‘Gehenna’ will be brought closer, and man will remember (his obligations towards his Lord), but this will be of no avail to him.
89:24  He will say: "Alas! I wish I had sent forth righteous acts for my life!"
89:25  No one chastises as the way He is going to chastise on that day;
89:26  No one binds as the way He is going to bind.
89:27  As for you, O' Comforted ‘Human Self’!
89:28  Return to your Lord, highly gratified and well-pleasing to Him!
89:29  Thus, enter (peacefully) among My (pious) servants!
89:30  And enter into My ‘Jannah’!
