    Revealed before the Hijrah. This chapter has 30 verses.

    In the name of God,
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    89:1 By the break of Day
    89:2 By the Nights twice five;
    89:3 By the even and odd (contrasted);
    89:4 And by the Night when it passeth away;-
    89:5 Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand?
    89:6 Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),-
    89:7 Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars,
    89:8 The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?
    89:9 And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?-
    89:10 And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes?
    89:11 (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,
    89:12 And heaped therein mischief (on mischief).
    89:13 Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements:
    89:14 For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower.
    89:15 Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me."
    89:16 But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!"
    89:17 Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans!
    89:18 Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!-
    89:19 And ye devour inheritance - all with greed,
    89:20 And ye love wealth with inordinate love!
    89:21 Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder,
    89:22 And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,
    89:23 And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?
    89:24 He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!"
    89:25 For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict,
    89:26 And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.
    89:27 (To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!
    89:28 "Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!
    89:29 "Enter thou, then, among My devotees!
    89:30 "Yea, enter thou My Heaven!
