* | quran | * | 92. al-layl. the night      <   > 

1.  *     By the night as it envelops;
2.  *     And by the day as it appears in brightness;
3.  *     And by Him Who created male and female;
4.  *     Certainly, your efforts and deeds are diverse (different in aims and purposes);
5.  *     As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to Allah and fears Him,
6.  *     And believes in Al-Husna.
7.  *     We will make smooth for him the path of ease (goodness).
8.  *     But he who is greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient .
9.  *     And gives the lie to Al-Husna (see Verse No: 6 footnote);
10.  *     We will make smooth for him the path for evil;
11.  *     And what will his wealth benefit him when he goes down (in destruction).
12.  *     Truly! Ours it is (to give) guidance,
13.  *     And truly, unto Us (belong) the last (Hereafter) and the first (this world).
14.  *     Therefore I have warned you of a Fire blazing fiercely (Hell);
15.  *     None shall enter it save the most wretched,
16.  *     Who denies and turns away.
17.  *     And Al-Muttaqoon (the pious and righteous - see V.2:2) will be far removed from it (Hell).
18.  *     He who spends his wealth for increase in self-purification,
19.  *     And have in his mind no favour from anyone for which a reward is expected in return,
20.  *     Except only the desire to seek the Countenance of his Lord, the Most High;
21.  *     He surely will be pleased (when he will enter Paradise).
