89:1  By the dawn
89:2  And the ten nights
89:3  By the even and the odd
89:4  By the night as it passes
89:5  A profound oath, for one who possesses intelligence
89:6  Have you noted what your Lord did to `Aad
89:7  Erum; the town with tall buildings
89:8  There was nothing like it anywhere
89:9  Also Thamoud, who carved the rocks in their valley
89:10  And Pharaoh who possessed might
89:11  They all transgressed in the land
89:12  They spread evil throughout
89:13  Consequently, your Lord poured upon them a whipping retribution
89:14  Your Lord is ever watchful
89:15  When the human being is tested by his Lord, through blessings and joy, he says, "My Lord is generous towards me."
89:16  But if He tests him through reduction in provisions, he says, "My Lord is humiliating me!"
89:17  Wrong! It is you who brought it on yourselves by not regarding the orphan
89:18  And not advocating charity towards the poor
89:19  And consuming the inheritance of helpless orphans
89:20  And loving the money too much
89:21  Indeed, when the earth is crushed, utterly crushed
89:22  And your Lord comes, together with the angels in row after row
89:23  On that day, Gehenna will be brought forth. On that day, the human being will remember - but what a remembrance - it will be too late
89:24  He will say, "Oh, I wish I prepared for my (eternal) life."
89:25  On that day, no retribution could be worse than His retribution
89:26  And no confinement is as effective as His confinement
89:27  As for you, O content soul
89:28  Return to your Lord, pleased and pleasing
89:29  Welcome into My servants
89:30  Welcome into My Paradise
