Did you notice?
89:1  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 this is an oath for men of understanding
89:6  Hast thou not considered how thy Lord dealt with ‘Ad
89:7  (Of) Iram, having lofty buildings
89:8  The like of which were not created in the land
89:9  And (with) Thamud, who hewed out rocks in the valley
89:10  And (with) Pharaoh, the lord of hosts
89:11  Who exceeded limits in the cities
89:12  And made great mischief therein
89:13  So thy Lord poured on them a portion of chastisement
89:14  Surely thy Lord is Watchful
89:15  As for man, when his Lord tries him, then gives him honour and favours him, he says: My Lord honours me
89:16  But when He tries him, then straitens to him his subsistence, he says: My Lord has disgraced me
89:17  Nay, but you honour not the orphan
89:18  Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor
89:19  And you devour heritage, devouring all
89:20  And you love wealth with exceeding love
89:21  Nay, when the earth is made to crumble to pieces
89:22  And thy Lord comes with the angels, ranks on ranks
89:23  And hell is made to appear that day. On that day man will be mindful, and of what use will being mindful be then
89:24  He will say: O would that I had sent before for (this) my life
89:25  But none can punish as He will punish on that day
89:26  And none can bind as He will bind on that day
89:27  O soul that art at rest
89:28  Return to thy Lord, well-pleased, well-pleasing
89:29  So enter among My servants
89:30  And enter My Garden
