92:1  CONSIDER the night as it veils [the earth] in darkness
92:2  and the day as it rises bright
92:3  Consider the creation of the male and the female
92:4  Verily, [O men,] you aim at most divergent ends
92:5  Thus, as for him who gives [to others] and is conscious of God
92:6  and believes in the truth of the ultimate good
92:7  for him shall We make easy the path towards [ultimate] ease
92:8  But as for him who is niggardly, and thinks that he is self-sufficient
92:9  and calls the ultimate good a lie –
92:10  for him shall We make easy the path towards hardship
92:11  and what will his wealth avail him when he goes down [to his grave]
92:12  BEHOLD, it is indeed for Us to grace [you] with guidance
92:13  and, behold, Ours is [the dominion over] the life to come as well as [over] this earlier part [of your life]
92:14  and so I warn you of the raging fire
92:15  [the fire] which none shall have to endure but that most hapless wretc
92:16  who gives the lie to the truth and turns away [from it]
92:17  For, distant from it shall remain he who is truly conscious of God
92:18  he that spends his possessions [on others] so that he might grow in purity –
92:19  not as payment for favours received
92:20  but only out of a longing for the countenance of his Sustainer, the All-Highest
92:21  and such, indeed, shall in time be well-pleased
