Al-Lail (The Night), 21 ayat, Makkan sura

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful 


By the night enshrouding * 1

And the day resplendent * 2

And Him Who hath created male and female * 3

Lo! your effort is dispersed (toward divers ends) * 4

As for him who giveth and is dutiful (toward Allah) * 5

And believeth in goodness * 6

Surely We will ease his way unto the state of ease * 7

But as for him who hoardeth and deemeth himself independent * 8

And disbelieveth in goodness * 9

Surely We will ease his way unto adversity * 10

His riches will not save him when he perisheth * 11

Lo! Ours it is (to give) the guidance * 12

And lo! unto Us belong the latter portion and the former * 13

Therefor have I warned you of the flaming Fire * 14

Which only the most wretched must endure * 15

He who denieth and turneth away * 16

Far removed from it will be the righteous * 17

Who giveth his wealth that he may grow (in goodness) * 18

And none hath with him any favor for reward * 19

Except as seeking (to fulfil) the purpose of his Lord Most High * 20

He verily will be content * 21
