Did you notice?
89:1  By the dawn
89:2  And the ten nights
89:3  And the even and the odd
89:4  And by the night as it passes
89:5  Is there in this an oath for one with understanding?
89:6  Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with AAa
89:7  [The anscient people] of Iram, [city of] lofty-pillared buildings
89:8  Like which no city had ever been created on the lands
89:9  And [another ancient people of] Thamood who hewed the rocks in the valley [to carve out buildings therefrom]
89:10  And Pharaoh of the many tent pegs (i.e. with means and power)
89:11  Who committed transgression in the lands
89:12  They often spread anarchy in them
89:13  Then their Lord lashed them with whip of punishment
89:14  Indeed, your Lord is ever watchful
89:15  Then as his Lord tests him by bestowing honour and bounties upon him, man says, "My Lord has honoured me!"
89:16  And as He tests him by restricting his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me!"
89:17  No! On the contrary, you do not treat the orphan honourably
89:18  And urge not one another to feed the poor
89:19  And devour the inheritance — devouring it all
89:20  And love the worldly wealth — loving it immensely
89:21  [And] no, [the Lord does not restrict His provisions to man to humiliate him]! When the earth is pounded to make it level
89:22  And when your Lord reveals Himself with rows upon rows of angels
89:23  And Hell brought near, that Day will man remember [what the Qur'aan had told him]! Of what avail will that remembering be to him
89:24  Man will say, "Would that I had sent ahead for this life of mine!"
89:25  Then, on that Day, Allah will punish him as none other can
89:26  And bind him as none other can
89:27  "O you contented soul!"
89:28  "Return to your Lord pleased [with yourself], pleasing (to your Lord)."
89:29  "Enter then to be among My devotees!"
89:30  "And enter My Garden!" ,
