Did you notice?
89:1  By the daw
89:2  and ten nights
89:3  And the single and the double
89:4  And the night when it travels on
89:5  Is there in that an oath for a man of sense
89:6  Hast thou not seen how thy Lord did with Ad?
89:7  with Iram of the columns
89:8  the like of which has not been created in the land
89:9  And Thamud when they hewed the stones in the valley
89:10  And Pharaoh of the stakes
89:11  Who were outrageous in the land
89:12  and did multiply wickedness therein
89:13  and thy Lord poured out upon them the scourge of torment
89:14  Verily, thy Lord is on a watch tower
89:15  and as for man, whenever his Lord tries him and honours him and grants him favour, then he says, My Lord has honoured me
89:16  but whenever he tries him and doles out to him his subsistence, then he says, My Lord despises me
89:17  Nay, but ye do not honour the orphan
89:18  nor do ye urge each other to feed the poor
89:19  and ye devour the inheritance (of the weak) with a general devouring
89:20  and ye love wealth with a complete love
89:21  Nay, when the earth is crushed to pieces
89:22  and thy Lord comes with the angels, rank on rank
89:23  and hell is brought on that day,- on that day shall man be reminded! but how shall he have a reminder
89:24  He will say, 'Would that I had sent something forward for my life!
89:25  But on that day no one shall be tormented with a torment like his
89:26  and none shall be bound with bonds like his
89:27  O thou comforted soul
89:28  return unto thy Lord, well pleased and well pleased with
89:29  And enter amongst my servants
89:30  and enter my Paradise
