The Night (Al-Layl)
21 verses, revealed in Mecca after The All High (Al-A'alaa) before Dawn (Al-Fajr)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I CALL THE night to witness when it covers over, 1 And by the day as it appears in brightness; 2 And the creating of the male and the female, 3 Verily, [O men,] you aim at most divergent ends! 4 Thus, as for him who gives [to others] and is conscious of God, 5 And (in all sincerity) testifies to the best,- 6 We will pave his way to ease. 7 But he who is greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient. 8 and he belied the finest 9 for him shall We make easy the path towards hardship: 10 And what will his wealth avail him when he falls? 11 Surely, in Our hands is guidance, 12 and, behold, Ours is [the dominion over] the life to come as well as [over] this earlier part [of your life]: 13 Now I have warned you of a Fire that flames, 14 none shall enter it but the most wicked, 15 Who denied (the truth) and turned away. 16 And avoid it shall the most pious, 17 He who gives his wealth to be purified, 18 not as payment for favours received, 19 acting only for the sake of his Lord the Most High -- 20 And he shall soon be well-pleased. 21
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
