SURA LXXXIX (89) - The Daybreak (Mecca - 30 Verses) (XXXIX - 54)
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the MercifulBy the Daybreak and ten nights.
Is there not in this an oath becoming a man of sense?Hast thou not seen how thy Lord dealt with Ad,
And with Themoud who hewed out the rocks in the valley;And with Pharaoh the impaler;
Wherefore thy Lord let loose on them the scourge of chastisement,For thy Lord standeth on a watch tower.
As to man, when his Lord trieth him and honoureth him and is bounteousto him,
But when he proveth him and limiteth his gifts to him,He saith, "My Lord despiseth me."
89:20 And ye devour heritages, devouring greedily,And ye love riches with exceeding love.
Aye. But when the earth shall be crushed with crushing, crushing,
And thy Lord shall come and the angels rank on rank,
And Hell on that day shall be moved up, - Man shall on that day rememberhimself. But how shall remembrance help him?
He shall say, Oh! would that I had prepared for this my life! On thatday none shall punish as God punisheth,
