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 Gracious, Most Merciful
By the night when it envelopeth, 1 and the day in splendour 2 By Him Who hath created the male and the female, 3 surely your striving is to diverse ends. 4 Then as for him who gives away and guards (against evil), 5 and affirmed the Truth of goodness: 6 observe piety, and believe in receiving rewards from God. 7 But as for he who withholds and considers himself free of need 8 and cries lies to the reward most fair, 9 Surely We will ease his way unto adversity. 10 When he falls (into Hell), his wealth will not help him. 11 Verily We take upon Ourselves to guide, 12 and to Us belongs the Hereafter as well as the present world -- 13 So, I warn you of the blazing Fire. 14 where none shall burn except the most wicked, 15 who gives the lie to the truth and turns away [from it]. 16 and from which the most godfearing shall be removed, 17 Who giveth his wealth that he may grow (in goodness). 18 and owes no favour to anyone, which is to be repaid, 19 seeking only the Face of his Lord, the Most High, 20 And soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction. 21
True are the words of God the Almighty.
