92. The Night | al-Layl

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[92:1] I swear by the night when it covers (the sun),
[92:2] and by the day when it unveils itself,
[92:3] and by the One who created the male and the female,
[92:4] your efforts are diverse:
[92:5] As for the one who gives (in charity) and fears Allah,
[92:6] and believes in the best (religion),
[92:7] We will facilitate for him the way to extreme ease (i.e. the comforts of Paradise).
[92:8] But the one who is miser and deems himself self-sufficient,
[92:9] and rejects the best (religion),
[92:10] We will facilitate for him the way to extreme distress.
[92:11] And his wealth will not help him when he will fall down (into Hell).
[92:12] Of course, it is undertaken by Us to guide,
[92:13] and in Our control is the Hereafter and the worldly life.
[92:14] So I have warned you of a blazing fire.
[92:15] None will enter it but the wretched one,
[92:16] who rejected (the truth) and turned away (from it).
[92:17] And saved from it will be the most God-fearing one,
[92:18] who gives his wealth (in charity) to become purified,
[92:19] while no one has conferred any favour on him for which he would give a return,
[92:20] but (he gave his wealth in charity) only to seek the Countenance of his Lord, the Most High.
[92:21] And surely he will soon be happy.
