Quran & Tafseer, The Noble Quran / Sunday, September 7th, 2008

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَى (1)

[92:1] I swear by the night when it covers (the sun),

وَالنَّهَارِ إِذَا تَجَلَّى (2)

[92:2] and by the day when it unveils itself,

وَمَا خَلَقَ الذَّكَرَ وَالأُنْثَى (3)

[92:3] and by the One who created the male and the female,

إِنَّ سَعْيَكُمْ لَشَتَّى (4)

[92:4] your efforts are diverse:

فَأَمَّا مَنْ أَعْطَى وَاتَّقَى (5)

[92:5] As for the one who gives (in charity) and fears Allah,

وَصَدَّقَ بِالْحُسْنَى (6)

[92:6] and believes in the best (religion),

فَسَنُيَسِّرُهُ لِلْيُسْرَى (7)

[92:7] We will facilitate for him the way to extreme ease (i.e. the comforts of Paradise).

وَأَمَّا مَنْ بَخِلَ وَاسْتَغْنَى (8)

[92:8] But the one who is miser and deems himself self-sufficient,

وَكَذَّبَ بِالْحُسْنَى (9)

[92:9] and rejects the best (religion),

فَسَنُيَسِّرُهُ لِلْعُسْرَى (10)

[92:10] We will facilitate for him the way to extreme distress.

وَمَا يُغْنِي عَنْهُ مَالُهُ إِذَا تَرَدَّى (11)

[92:11] And his wealth will not help him when he will fall down (into Hell).

إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا لَلْهُدَى (12)

[92:12] Of course, it is undertaken by Us to guide,

وَإِنَّ لَنَا لَلآخِرَةَ وَالأُولَى (13)

[92:13] and in Our control is the Hereafter and the worldly life.

فَأَنْذَرْتُكُمْ نَاراً تَلَظَّى (14)

[92:14] So I have warned you of a blazing fire.

لا يَصْلاهَا إِلاَّ الأَشْقَى (15)

[92:15] None will enter it but the wretched one,

الَّذِي كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلَّى (16)

[92:16] who rejected (the truth) and turned away (from it).

وَسَيُجَنَّبُهَا الأَتْقَى (17)

[92:17] And saved from it will be the most God-fearing one,

الَّذِي يُؤْتِي مَالَهُ يَتَزَكَّى (18)

[92:18] who gives his wealth (in charity) to become purified,

وَمَا لأَحَدٍ عِنْدَهُ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ تُجْزَى (19)

[92:19] while no one has conferred any favour on him for which he would give a return,

إِلاَّ ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ رَبِّهِ الأَعْلَى (20)

[92:20] but (he gave his wealth in charity) only to seek the Countenance of his Lord, the Most High.

وَلَسَوْفَ يَرْضَى (21)

[92:21] And surely he will soon be happy.
