هَل فى ذٰلِكَ قَسَمٌ لِذى حِجرٍ(5)
Is this not a sufficient oath for intelligent people?(5)

(Muhammad), consider how your Lord dealt with the tribe of Ad,(6)
إِرَمَ ذاتِ العِمادِ(7)
the people of the huge columned city of Eram(7)
الَّتى لَم يُخلَق مِثلُها فِى البِلٰدِ(8)
whose like has never been created in any other land.(8)
وَثَمودَ الَّذينَ جابُوا الصَّخرَ بِالوادِ(9)

فَصَبَّ عَلَيهِم رَبُّكَ سَوطَ عَذابٍ(13)
Thus, your Lord afflicted them with torment;(13)
إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَبِالمِرصادِ(14)
your Lord keeps an eye on (all evil-doing people).(14)
فَأَمَّا الإِنسٰنُ إِذا مَا ابتَلىٰهُ رَبُّهُ فَأَكرَمَهُ وَنَعَّمَهُ فَيَقولُ رَبّى أَكرَمَنِ(15)
As for the human being, when his Lord tests him, honors him, and grants him bounty, he says, "God has honored me".(15)
وَأَمّا إِذا مَا ابتَلىٰهُ فَقَدَرَ عَلَيهِ رِزقَهُ فَيَقولُ رَبّى أَهٰنَنِ(16)
However, when his Lord tests him by a measured amount of sustenance, he says, "God has disgraced me".(16)
كَلّا ۖ بَل لا تُكرِمونَ اليَتيمَ(17)
(Since wealth does not necessarily guarantee everlasting happiness) then why do you not show kindness to the orphans,(17)
وَلا تَحٰضّونَ عَلىٰ طَعامِ المِسكينِ(18)
or urge one another to feed the destitute?(18)
وَتَأكُلونَ التُّراثَ أَكلًا لَمًّا(19)
Why do you take away the inheritance of others indiscriminately(19)
وَتُحِبّونَ المالَ حُبًّا جَمًّا(20)
and why do you have an excessive love of riches?(20)
كَلّا إِذا دُكَّتِ الأَرضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا(21)
When the earth is crushed into small pieces(21)
وَجاءَ رَبُّكَ وَالمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا(22)
and (when you find yourself) in the presence of your Lord and the rows and rows of angels, your greed for riches will certainly be of no avail to you.(22)
وَجِا۟يءَ يَومَئِذٍ بِجَهَنَّمَ ۚ يَومَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ الإِنسٰنُ وَأَنّىٰ لَهُ الذِّكرىٰ(23)
On that day, hell will be brought closer and the human being will come to his senses, but this will be of no avail to him.(23)
يَقولُ يٰلَيتَنى قَدَّمتُ لِحَياتى(24)
He will say, "Would that I had done some good deeds for this life".(24)
فَيَومَئِذٍ لا يُعَذِّبُ عَذابَهُ أَحَدٌ(25)
On that day the punishment of God and His detention will be unparalleled.(25)
وَلا يوثِقُ وَثاقَهُ أَحَدٌ(26)
And His bonds will be such as none other can bind.(26)
يٰأَيَّتُهَا النَّفسُ المُطمَئِنَّةُ(27)

ارجِعى إِلىٰ رَبِّكِ راضِيَةً مَرضِيَّةً(28)
