92. Al-Layl (The Night)

Meccan, 21 verses

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

  1. By the night when it covers

  2. and by the day when it shows

  3. and by what created the male and the female,

  4. indeed your efforts are different.

  5. As for anyone who gives and is cautious (of God)

  6. and confirms goodness,

  7. then We are going to get him ready for the easy way.

  8. And as for anyone who is stingy and supposes he has no need

  9. and denies goodness

  10. then We are going to get him ready for the difficult way,

  11. and his wealth will be of no use when he falls (dead).

  12. Indeed the guidance is Our responsibility.

  13. And the Hereafter and the first (this world) belong to Us.

  14. So I warn you of a flaming fire,

  15. no one enters (and burns in) it except the most unfortunate,

  16. the one who denied and turned away.

  17. And the most cautious (of God) will be kept away from it,

  18. The one who gives his wealth to be purified.

  19. And no one has any favor with Him to be rewarded (for it)

  20. except (anyone who) looks for pleasure (and attention) of his Lord, the highest,

  21. and he is going to be pleased.
