6. وَأَذِنَتْ لِرَبِّهَا وَحُقَّتْ
And hearkens to its Lord and is dutiful,
7. يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَدْحًا فَمُلَاقِيهِ
O man, you have to strive and go on striving towards your Lord, then will you meet Him.

And he who is given his ledger in his right hand
9. فَسَوْفَ يُحَاسَبُ حِسَابًا يَسِيرًا
Will have an easy reckoning,
10. وَيَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ مَسْرُورًا

Will pray for death,
13. وَيَصْلَىٰ سَعِيرًا

16. بَلَىٰ إِنَّ رَبَّهُ كَانَ بِهِ بَصِيرًا
Why not? His Lord was always watching him.
17. فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِالشَّفَقِ
So indeed I call to witness the evening twilight,
18. وَاللَّيْلِ وَمَا وَسَقَ
And the night and all it gathers,
19. وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا اتَّسَقَ
And the moon when at the full,
20. لَتَرْكَبُنَّ طَبَقًا عَن طَبَقٍ
That you will climb from stage to stage.
21. فَمَا لَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
So, wherefore do they not believe?
22. وَإِذَا قُرِئَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقُرْآنُ لَا يَسْجُدُونَ ۩
And when the Qur'an is recited to them do not bow in adoration?
23. بَلِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُكَذِّبُونَ
In fact the unbelievers disavow.
24. وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُوعُونَ
But God knows what they harbour in their breasts.
25. فَبَشِّرْهُم بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ
So give them news of painful punishment,
26. إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ
Except those who believe and do the right: For them there is reward unending.
