THE NIGHT, CHAPTER NO. 092
With the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
092.001 By the Night as it conceals (the light);
092.002 By the Day as it appears in glory;
092.003 By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female;-
092.004 Verily, (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.
092.005 So he who gives (in charity) and fears (Allah),
092.006 And (in all sincerity) testifies to the best,-
092.007 We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Bliss.
092.008 But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient,
092.009 And gives the lie to the best,-
092.010 We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Misery;
092.011 Nor will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong (into the Pit).
092.012 Verily We take upon Ourselves to guide,
092.013 And verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning.
092.014 Therefore do I warn you of a Fire blazing fiercely;
092.015 None shall reach it but those most unfortunate ones
092.016 Who give the lie to Truth and turn their backs.
092.017 But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from it,-
092.018 Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification,
092.019 And have in their minds no favour from anyone for which a reward is expected in return,
092.020 But only the desire to seek for the Countenance of their Lord Most High;
092.021 And soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction.
