Did you notice?
You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
The even and odd numbers,
And the night when it passes.
Is this not a sufficient oath for highly intelligent one?
Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with (the people of) ‘A'ad’,
(With) ‘Iram’, the city of the pillars
The like of which had never been created in the land?
(With people of) ‘Thamūd’, who hewed out the rocks in the valley
And with ‘Pharaoh’, lord of stakes?
All of them went beyond the bounds (of moral & divine principles) in the lands,
And increased therein the corruption.
Thus, your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment.
Indeed, your Lord is Ever Watchful.
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."
But, whenever He tries him differently by straitening his means of livings, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!"
Nay! but you honor not the orphan,
Neither do you exhort one another to feed the poor.
You devour greedily the inheritance of others indiscriminately,
And you have immense love for wealth.
Nay! When the earth is made to crumble into dust,
And your Lord will come with ‘Angels’, rank on rank,
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.
He will say: "Alas! I wish I had sent forth righteous acts for my life!"
No one chastises as the way He is going to chastise on that day;
No one binds as the way He is going to bind.
As for you, O' Comforted ‘Human Self’!
Return to your Lord, highly gratified and well-pleasing to Him!
Thus, enter (peacefully) among My (pious) servants!
And enter into My ‘Jannah’!
