The Night

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

[92.1] I swear by the night when it draws a veil,
[92.2] And the day when it shines in brightness,
[92.3] And the creating of the male and the female,
[92.4] Your striving is most surely (directed to) various (ends).
[92.5] Then as for him who gives away and guards (against evil),
[92.6] And accepts the best,
[92.7] We will facilitate for him the easy end.
[92.8] And as for him who is niggardly and considers himself free from need (of Allah),
[92.9] And rejects the best,
[92.10] We will facilitate for him the difficult end.
[92.11] And his wealth will not avail him when he perishes.
[92.12] Surely Ours is it to show the way,
[92.13] And most surely Ours is the hereafter and the former.
[92.14] Therefore I warn you of the fire that flames:
[92.15] None shall enter it but the most unhappy,
[92.16] Who gives the lie (to the truth) and turns (his) back.
[92.17] And away from it shall be kept the one who guards most (against evil),
[92.18] Who gives away his wealth, purifying himself
[92.19] And no one has with him any boon for which he should be rewarded,
[92.20] Except the seeking of the pleasure of his Lord, the Most High.
[92.21] And he shall soon be well-pleased.
