Qur'an - Translation

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[89.1] I swear by the daybreak,

[89.2] And the ten nights,

[89.3] And the even and the odd,

[89.4] And the night when it departs.

[89.5] Truly in that there is an oath for those who possess understanding.

[89.6] Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with Ad,

[89.7] (The people of) Aram, possessors of lofty buildings,

[89.8] The like of which were not created in the (other) cities;

[89.9] And (with) Samood, who hewed out the rocks in the valley,

[89.10] And (with) Firon, the lord of hosts,

[89.11] Who committed inordinacy in the cities,

[89.12] So they made great mischief therein?

[89.13] Therefore your Lord let down upon them a portion of the chastisement.

[89.14] Most surely your Lord is watching.

[89.15] And as for man, when his Lord tries him, then treats him with honor and makes him lead an easy life, he says: My Lord honors me.

[89.16] But when He tries him (differently), then straitens to him his means of subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me.

[89.17] Nay! but you do not honor the orphan,

[89.18] Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,

[89.19] And you eat away the heritage, devouring (everything) indiscriminately,

[89.20] And you love wealth with exceeding love.

[89.21] Nay! when the earth is made to crumble to pieces,

[89.22] And your Lord comes and (also) the angels in ranks,

[89.23] And hell is made to appear on that day. On that day shall man be mindful, and what shall being mindful (then) avail him?

[89.24] He shall say: O! would that I had sent before for (this) my life!

[89.25] But on that day shall no one chastise with (anything like) His chastisement,

[89.26] And no one shall bind with (anything like) His binding.

[89.27] O soul that art at rest!

[89.28] Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with him), well-pleasing (Him),

[89.29] So enter among My servants,

[89.30] And enter into My garden.
