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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By the night when it covers 1 By the day when it appeareth in glory, 2 Consider the creation of the male and the female! 3 surely your striving is to diverse ends. 4 As for one who gives [to others] and fears [God], 5 for those who spend for the cause of God, 6 So We will very soon provide him ease. 7 And for him who hoarded wealth and remained carefree, 8 And rejects the best, 9 We shall pave his way to hardship, 10 And his riches will not avail him when he falls headlong (into the Abyss). 11 Truly! Ours it is (to give) guidance, 12 and to Us belong the Last and the First. 13 Therefore I have warned you of a Fire blazing fiercely (Hell); 14 None shall enter it but the most unhappy, 15 who gives the lie to the truth and turns away [from it]. 16 But the God-fearing shall be kept away from it, 17 one who gives his wealth to become purified, 18 And who hath no favour from anyone to recompense. 19 acting only for the sake of his Lord the Most High -- 20 Will surely be gratified. 21
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
