1 By the night enshrouding
2 And the day resplendent
3 And Him Who hath created male and female,
4 Lo! your effort is dispersed (toward divers ends).
5 As for him who giveth and is dutiful (toward Allah)
6 And believeth in goodness;
7 Surely We will ease his way unto the state of ease.
8 But as for him who hoardeth and deemeth himself independent,
9 And disbelieveth in goodness;
10 Surely We will ease his way unto adversity.
11 His riches will not save him when he perisheth.
12 Lo! Ours it is (to give) the guidance
13 And lo! unto Us belong the latter portion and the former.
