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.
