Did you notice?
89:1  I CALL TO witness the daw
89:2  And the Ten Nights
89:3  The multiple and the one
89:4  The night as it advances
89:5  Is there not an evidence in this for those who have sense
89:6  Have you not seen what your Lord did to the 'A
89:7  Of Eram with lofty pillars (erected as signposts in the desert)
89:8  The like of whom were never created in the realm
89:9  And with Thamud who carved rocks in the valley
89:10  And the mighty Pharao
89:11  Who terrorised the region
89:12  And multiplied corruption
89:13  So your Lord poured a scourge of punishment over them
89:14  Your Lord is certainly in wait
89:15  As for man, whenever his Lord tries him and then is gracious and provides good things for him, he says: "My Lord has been gracious to me."
89:16  But when He tries him by restraining his means, he says: "My Lord despises me."
89:17  No. In fact you are not generous to the orphans
89:18  Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor
89:19  And you devour (others') inheritance greedily
89:20  And love wealth with all your heart
89:21  Surely when We pound the earth to powder grounded, pounded to dust
89:22  And comes your Lord, and angels row on row
89:23  And Hell is brought near, that day will man remember, but of what avail will then remembering be
89:24  He will say: "Alas the woe! Would that I had sent ahead something in my life."
89:25  None can punish as He will punish on that day
89:26  And none can bind as He will bind
89:27  O you tranquil soul
89:28  Return to your Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing Him
89:29  "Enter then among My votaries
89:30  Enter then My garden."
