George Sale rendition of Surah The Night(al-Layl)
92:1 By the night, when it covereth all things with darkness;
92:2 by the day, when it shineth forth;
92:3 by Him who hath created the male, and the female:
92:4 Verily your endeavour is different.
92:5 Now whoso is obedient, and feareth God,
92:6 and professeth the truth of that faith which is most excellent;
92:7 unto him will We facilitate the way to happiness:
92:8 But whoso shall be covetous, and shall be wholly taken up with this world,
92:9 and shall deny the truth of that which is most excellent;
92:10 unto him will We facilitate the way to misery;
92:11 and his riches shall not profit him, when he shall fall headlong into hell.
92:12 Verily unto Us appertaineth the direction of mankind:
92:13 And ours is the life to come, and the present life.
92:14 Wherefore I threaten you with fire which burneth fiercely,
92:15 which none shall enter to be burned except the most wretched;
92:16 who shall have disbelieved, and turned back.
92:17 But he who strictly bewareth idolatry and rebellion, shall be removed far from the same;
92:18 who giveth his substance in alms,
92:19 and by whom no benefit is bestowed on any, that it may be recompensed,
92:20 but who bestoweth the same for the sake of his Lord, the most High:
92:21 And hereafter he shall be well satisfied with his reward.
