IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE MOST GRACIOUS, THE DISPENSER OF GRACE:
For good people Allah will facilitate the easy way and for the wicked the hard way, and What benefit will he get from wealth, if he himself is doomed
1 CONSIDER the night as it veils [the earth] in darkness,
2 and the day as it rises bright!
3 Consider the creation of the male and the female!1
4 Verily, [O men,] you aim at most divergent ends!2
5 Thus, as for him who gives [to others] and is conscious of God,
6 and believes in the truth of the ultimate good3 -
7 for him shall We make easy the path towards [ultimate] ease.4
8 But as for him who is niggardly, and thinks that he is self-sufficient,5
9 and calls the ultimate good a lie -
10 for him shall We make easy the path towards hardship:
11 and what will his wealth avail him when he goes down [to his grave]?6
12 BEHOLD, it is indeed for Us to grace [you] with guidance;
13 and, behold, Ours is [the dominion over] the life to come as well as [over] this earlier part [of your life]:7
14 and so I warn you of the raging fire -
15 [the fire] which none shall have to endure but that most hapless wretch
16 who gives the lie to the truth and turns away [from it].
17 For, distant from it shall remain he who is truly conscious of God:
18 he that spends his possessions [on others] so that he might grow in purity -
19 not as payment for favours received,8
20 but only out of a longing for the countenance of his Sustainer, the All-Highest:
21 and such, indeed, shall in time be well-pleased.
