92 THE NIGHT (1 – 21)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

By the night enshrouding and the day in splendour and That which created the male and the female, surely your striving is to diverse ends.

5As for him who gives and is godfearing and confirms the reward most fair, 10We shall surely ease him to the Easing. But as for him who is a miser, and self-sufficient, and cries lies to the reward most fair, We shall surely ease him to the Hardship; his wealth shall not avail him when he perishes.

Surely upon Us rests the guidance, and to Us belong the Last and the First.

Now I have warned you of a Fire that flames, 15whereat none but the most wretched shall be roasted, even he who cried lies, and turned away; and from which the most godfearing shall be removed, even he who gives his wealth to purify himself and confers no favour on any man for recompense, 20only seeking the Face of his Lord the Most High; and he shall surely be satisfied.
