By the Nights twice five
By the even and odd (contrasted)
And by the Night when it passeth away;
Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand
Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),
Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars
The like of which were not produced in (all) the land
And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?
And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes
(All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands
And heaped therein mischief (on mischief)
Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements
For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower
Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me."
But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!"
Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans
Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!
And ye devour inheritance - all with greed
And ye love wealth with inordinate love
Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder
And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank
And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him
He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!"
For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict
And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind
(To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction
"Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him
"Enter thou, then, among My devotees
"Yea, enter thou My Heaven
