by the Ten (secret) Nights
by the odd and even (8th and 9th Dhil-hajj
and by the night when it moves on towards daybreak (reward and retribution in the next life is an absolute reality)
Is this not a sufficient oath for intelligent people
(Muhammad), consider how your Lord dealt with the tribe of Ad
the people of the huge columned city of Era
whose like has never been created in any other land
(Also consider how He dealt with) the Thamud, who carved their houses out of the rocks in the valley
(Also consider the people of) the Pharaoh who victimized people by placing them on the stake
led rebellious lives
and spread much corruption in the land
Thus, your Lord afflicted them with torment
your Lord keeps an eye on (all evil-doing people)
As for the human being, when his Lord tests him, honors him, and grants him bounty, he says, "God has honored me"
However, when his Lord tests him by a measured amount of sustenance , he says, "God has disgraced me"
(Since wealth does not necessarily guarantee everlasting happiness) then why do you not show kindness to the orphans
or urge one another to feed the destitute
Why do you take away the inheritance of others indiscriminatel
and why do you have an excessive love of riches
When the earth is crushed into small piece
and (when you find yourself) in the presence of your Lord and the rows and rows of angels, your greed for riches will certainly be of no avail to you
On that day, hell will be brought closer and the human being will come to his senses, but this will be of no avail to him
He will say, "Would that I had done some good deeds for this life"
On that day the punishment of God and His detention will be unparalleled
And His bonds will be such as none other can bind
return to your Lord well pleased with him and He will be pleased with you
