And [by] the even [number] and the od
And [by] the night when it passes
Is there [not] in [all] that an oath [sufficient] for one of perception
Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with 'Aad
[With] Iram - who had lofty pillars
The likes of whom had never been created in the land
And [with] Thamud, who carved out the rocks in the valley
And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes?
[All of] whom oppressed within the land
And increased therein the corruption
So your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment
Indeed, your Lord is in observation
And as for man, when his Lord tries him and [thus] is generous to him and favors him, he says, "My Lord has honored me."
But when He tries him and restricts his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me."
No! But you do not honor the orpha
And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor
And you consume inheritance, devouring [it] altogether
And you love wealth with immense love
No! When the earth has been leveled - pounded and crushed
And your Lord has come and the angels, rank upon rank
And brought [within view], that Day, is Hell - that Day, man will remember, but what good to him will be the remembrance
He will say, "Oh, I wish I had sent ahead [some good] for my life."
So on that Day, none will punish [as severely] as His punishment
And none will bind [as severely] as His binding [of the evildoers]
[To the righteous it will be said], "O reassured soul
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him]
And enter among My [righteous] servant
And enter My Paradise."
