In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

By the morning,[1] and the ten nights (first ten days of Dhul-Hijja),[2] the even and the odd,[3] and the night when it departs![4] Is there not in these an oath (enough evidence) for those who use their common sense?[5] Have you not seen how your Rabb dealt with ‘Ad?[6] The residents of Iram, the city of lofty pillars,[7] the like of which had never been built in other cities.[8] And with the people of Thamüd who hewed out their dwellings in the rocks of the valley?[9] And with Fir'on (Pharaoh) the owner of stakes?[10] They all transgressed beyond bounds in their cities,[11] and committed great mischief therein.[12] Therefore, your Rabb let loose on them His scourge of torment.[13] Surely your Rabb is ever watchful.[14]

89:[1-14]

Admonition for social welfare through the examples of prior nations

As for man, when his Rabb tries him through giving him honor and blessings, he says: “My Rabb is bountiful to me."[15] But when He tries him through restricting his subsistence, he says: “My Rabb has humiliated me."[16] Nay! But you did not show kindness to the orphan,[17] nor did you encourage each other in feeding the poor.[18] Greedily you lay your hands on the inheritance of the weak,[19] and you love wealth with all your hearts.[20]

89:[15-20]

What should be avoided to do real social welfare?

Nay! You should know, when the earth will be pounded to powder,[21] your Rabb will come, with angels standing in ranks,[22] hell shall be brought in sight. On that Day man will remember his deeds, but how is that remembrance going to profit him?[23] He will say: “Alas! Would that I had sent forth some good deeds for this life of mine."[24] None can punish as Allah will punish on that Day,[25] and none can bind as He will bind.[26] To the righteous soul it will be said: “O fully satisfied soul![27] Return to your Rabb, well pleased with Him and well-pleasing to Him.[28] Join My servants,[29] and enter My paradise."[30]

89:[21-30]

Day of Judgment will be too late to heed the admonition


Allah's address to the believers

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* The admonition for social welfare through the examples of prior nations.
* What should be avoided to do real social welfare?
* The Day of Judgement will be too late to heed the admonition.

The theme of this Sürah is to affirm the rewards and punishments in the Hereafter through swearing oaths by the dawn, the ten nights, the even and the odd, and the departing night, the disbelievers are told that these things are a symbol of the regularity that exists in the night and day, and swearing oaths by these the question has been asked: "Even after witnessing this wise system established by God, do you still need any other evidence to show that it is not beyond the power of that God, Who has brought about this system, to establish the Hereafter?" Reasoning is then given from man’s own history. The evil end of 'Ad, Thamüd and Pharaoh are cited as examples showing that when they transgressed and spread corruption in the land, Allah laid upon them the scourge of His chastisement. This is proof of the fact that the system of the universe is not being run by deaf and blind forces, but by a Wise Ruler, the demand of Whose wisdom and justice is continuously visible in man’s own history.

After this, an appraisal of human society is made criticizing the materialistic attitude of people; they overlook the morality of good and evil; they regard only the achievement of worldly wealth, rank and position, or the absence of it, as the criterion of honor or disgrace; and have forgotten that neither riches are a reward nor poverty a punishment, but that Allah is trying man in both conditions to see what attitude he adopts when blessed with wealth and how he behaves when afflicted by poverty. This discourse is concluded with the assertion that accountability shall certainly be held and it will be held on the Day when the Divine Court will be established. At that time, the deniers of the judgement will be regretful, but their regrets will not save them from Allah’s punishment. As for the people who have accepted the truth, which the Heavenly books and the Prophets are presenting to the world, Allah will be pleased with them and they will be well pleased with the rewards bestowed by Allah. They will be called upon to join the righteous and enter paradise.
