By the night when it swathes.
By the day when it illuminates.
By the One who created the male and female,
Your endeavors are indeed in vain.
As for the one who gives charity, acts piously
And confirms the belief in ‘Al-Husna’ (i.e ‘the best’ which is: there is no god but Allâh)
We will lead him easily towards ease.
But the one who refrains from giving alms, considers himself free of need
And believes that ‘Al-Husna’ is a lie
We will lead him easily towards adversity.
His wealth will not benefit him when he falls into disintegration.
Verily, it is incumbent on Us to give divine guidance,
And indeed, unto Us belong the End and the Beginning.
Thus, I have warned you of fiercely blazing fire.
It scorches no one but the most wretched one
Who gives the lie to (Truth) and takes no heed.
But the most ‘pious’ one can elude from it
Since he gives from his wealth to purify himself,
Not looking forward to any reward from anyone,
Only seeking the countenance of his Lord, the Most High.
And he will be satisfied.
