In the Name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
swear by the night when it draws a veil,
the day when it shines in brightness,
the creating of the male and the female,
striving is most surely (directed to) various (ends).
as for him who gives away and guards (against evil),
accepts the best,
will facilitate for him the easy end.
as for him who is niggardly and considers himself free from need (of Allah),
rejects the best,
will facilitate for him the difficult end.
his wealth will not avail him when he perishes.
Surely Ours is it to show the way,
most surely Ours is the hereafter and the former.
Therefore I warn you of the fire that flames:
shall enter it but the most unhappy,
gives the lie (to the truth) and turns (his) back.
away from it shall be kept the one who guards most (against evil),
gives away his wealth, purifying himself.
no one has with him any boon for which he should be rewarded,
Except the seeking of the pleasure of his Lord, the Most High.
he shall soon be well-pleased.
