In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful
92:1 By the Night as it conceals (the light);
92:2 By the Day as it appears in glory;
92:3 By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female;-
92:4 Verily, (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.
92:5 So he who gives (in charity) and fears (God),
92:6 And (in all sincerity) testifies to the best,-
92:7 We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Bliss.
92:8 But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient,
92:9 And gives the lie to the best,-
92:10 We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Misery;
92:11 Nor will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong (into the Pit).
92:12 Verily We take upon Ourselves to guide,
92:13 And verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning.
92:14 Therefore do I warn you of a Fire blazing fiercely;
92:15 None shall reach it but those most unfortunate ones
92:16 Who give the lie to Truth and turn their backs.
92:17 But those most devoted to God shall be removed far from it,-
92:18 Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification,
92:19 And have in their minds no favour from anyone for which a reward is expected in return,
92:20 But only the desire to seek for the Countenance of their Lord Most High;
92:21 And soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction.
