;

1 . By the night when it envelopeth,

2 . By the day when it appeareth in glory,

3 . By Him Who hath created the male and the female,

4 . Verily your endeavour is diverse.

5 . Then as for him who giveths and feareth Him.

6 . And testifieth to the Good,

7 . Unto him therefore We shall indeed make easy the path to ease.

8 . And as for him who stinteth and is heedless,

9 . And who belieth the Good,

10 . Unto him therefore We shall Indeed make easy the path to hardship.

11 . And his substance will avail him not when he perisheth.

12 . Verify on us is the guidance

13 . And verify Ours is both the Hereafter and the life present.

14 . Wherefore have warned you of Fire flaming,

15 . None shall roast therein but the most wretched,

16 . Who belieth and turneth away.

17 . And avoid it shall the most pious,

18 . Who giveth away his substance that he may be cleansed,

19 . And who hath no favour from anyone to recompense.

20 . But only seeking the Countenance of his Lord the Most High.

21 . And presently he shall become wellpleased.
