and the even and odd,
and the night when it travels on,
is there not in that an oath for the intelligent?
Do you not see what your Lord did with ´Ad
whose like was not created in any land
and Thamud who carved out rocks in the valley-side,
and Pharaoh of the Stakes,
all of whom were tyrants in their lands
and caused much corruption in them?
So your Lord unleashed on them a scourging punishment;
your Lord is always lying in wait.
As for man, when his Lord tests him by honouring him and favouring him, he says, ´My Lord has honoured me!´
But then when He tests him by restricting his provision, he says, ´My Lord has humiliated me!´
No indeed! You do not honour orphans
nor do you urge the feeding of the poor;
you devour inheritance with voracious appetites
and you have an insatiable love of wealth.
No indeed! When the earth is crushed and ground to dust
and your Lord arrives with the angels rank upon rank
and that Day Hell is produced, that Day man will remember; but how will the remembrance help him?
He will say, ´Oh! If only I had prepared in advance for this life of mine!´
That Day no one will punish as He punishes
and no one will shackle as He shackles.
´O self at rest and at peace,
return to your Lord, well-pleasing and well-pleased!
Enter among My slaves!
