Did you notice?
89:1  I call to witness (all the times and places specially important for the acceptance of prayers including) the dawn (of the twentieth of Ramadzan)
89:2  And the (last) ten Nights (of Ramadzan)
89:3  And (the Prayers which consist of) the even and odd (number of Rak`ats performed during these nights)
89:4  And the Night (- Lailatul-Qadr, the Blessed Night), when it moves on (to its close)
89:5  In it there is surely a strong evidence for one who has sense and understanding
89:6  Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with `a
89:7  Of Iram, possessors of tall statures and lofty columns
89:8  The like of whom have not been created in these parts of land
89:9  And (how He dealt with the tribe of) Thamud who hewed out huge rocks in the valley (to make their housings)
89:10  And (how He dealt with) Pharaoh, lord of vast hosts
89:11  (All these people were) those who committed (all sort of) excesses in the cities
89:12  And they spread a lot of corruption and lawlessness therein
89:13  (So much) so that your Lord let loose on them the scourge and various kinds of punishments
89:14  Behold! your God is always on the watch
89:15  Moreover a human being is such that when his Lord disciplines him (by prosperity) and (thus) honours him and bestows favours on him, he says, `My Lord has honoured me.
89:16  And when He disciplines him (with affliction) and (thus) straitens for him his (means of) subsistence, he says, `My Lord has (for no reason) disgraced me.
89:17  Nay, (what you think is wrong,) but (the reason for this degradation is that) you (for your part) do not honour the orphan
89:18  And you do not urge one another to feed the poor
89:19  And you devour the heritage (of others) wholly and indiscriminately
89:20  And you are exceedingly fond of wealth
89:21  By no means (will it be so as you think). When the earth is completely crushed into pieces
89:22  And when (the judgment of) your Lord comes (to pass), and the angels (descend also) ranged rank on rank (to execute His decree)
89:23  On that Day Gehenna shall be brought near. (It is) on that very Day that a person will remember (the admonition), but of what avail shall that remembrance be to him (at that time)
89:24  He will say, `O would that I had sent forward (some good deeds as a provision) for this my life here (on this side).
89:25  So on that day none but He shall execute His punishment
89:26  And no one but He shall bind like His binding
89:27  (As for the person who has been blessed with a contented and peaceful mind He will say to him,) `O you soul at peace
89:28  `Come back to your Lord well-pleased with Him and He well-pleased with you
89:29  `Enter the fold of My chosen servants
89:30  `And enter the Garden made by Me.
