Qur'an

 Revealed 10th  

89:1
By the dawn

89:2
And [by] ten nights

89:3
And [by] the even [number] and the odd

89:4
And [by] the night when it passes,

89:5
Is there [not] in [all] that an oath [sufficient] for one of perception?

89:6
Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with 'Aad -

89:7
[With] Iram - who had lofty pillars,

89:8
The likes of whom had never been created in the land?

89:9
And [with] Thamud, who carved out the rocks in the valley?

89:10
And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes?  -

89:11
[All of] whom oppressed within the lands

89:12
And increased therein the corruption.

89:13
So your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment.

89:14
Indeed, your Lord is in observation.

89:15
And as for man, when his Lord tries him and [thus] is generous to him and favors him, he says, "My Lord has honored me."

89:16
But when He tries him and restricts his provision, he says, "My Lord has humiliated me."

89:17
No!  But you do not honor the orphan

89:18
And you do not encourage one another to feed the poor.

89:19
And you consume inheritance, devouring [it] altogether,

89:20
And you love wealth with immense love.
89:21
No!  When the earth has been leveled - pounded and crushed - [*Shepherd of Hermas 3:4]

89:22
And your Lord has come and the angels, rank upon rank, [*Book of Enoch 1:4]

89:23
And brought [within view], that Day, is Hell - that Day, man will remember, but what good to him will be the remembrance?

89:24
He will say, "Oh, I wish I had sent ahead [some good] for my life."

89:25
So on that Day, none will punish [as severely] as His punishment,

89:26
And none will bind [as severely] as His binding [of the evildoers].  [*Matthew 22:13]

89:27
[To the righteous it will be said], "O reassured soul,

89:28
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him],

89:29
And enter among My [righteous] servants

89:30
And enter My Paradise."
