Did you notice?
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
