Have you not seen what your Lord did to the 'Ad
8. إِرَمَ ذَاتِ الْعِمَادِ
Of Eram with lofty pillars (erected as signposts in the desert),
9. الَّتِي لَمْ يُخْلَقْ مِثْلُهَا فِي الْبِلَادِ
The like of whom were never created in the realm;
10. وَثَمُودَ الَّذِينَ جَابُوا الصَّخْرَ بِالْوَادِ

So your Lord poured a scourge of punishment over them.

Your Lord is certainly in wait.
16. فَأَمَّا الْإِنسَانُ إِذَا مَا ابْتَلَاهُ رَبُّهُ فَأَكْرَمَهُ وَنَعَّمَهُ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّي أَكْرَمَنِ
As for man, whenever his Lord tries him and then is gracious and provides good things for him, he says: "My Lord has been gracious to me."
17. وَأَمَّا إِذَا مَا ابْتَلَاهُ فَقَدَرَ عَلَيْهِ رِزْقَهُ فَيَقُولُ رَبِّي أَهَانَنِ
But when He tries him by restraining his means, he says: "My Lord despises me."
18. كَلَّا ۖ بَل لَّا تُكْرِمُونَ الْيَتِيمَ
No. In fact you are not generous to the orphans,
19. وَلَا تَحَاضُّونَ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ
Nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,
20. وَتَأْكُلُونَ التُّرَاثَ أَكْلًا لَّمًّا
And you devour (others') inheritance greedily,
21. وَتُحِبُّونَ الْمَالَ حُبًّا جَمًّا
And love wealth with all your heart.
22. كَلَّا إِذَا دُكَّتِ الْأَرْضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا
Surely when We pound the earth to powder grounded, pounded to dust,
23. وَجَاءَ رَبُّكَ وَالْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا
And comes your Lord, and angels row on row,
24. وَجِيءَ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِجَهَنَّمَ ۚ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ الْإِنسَانُ وَأَنَّىٰ لَهُ الذِّكْرَىٰ
And Hell is brought near, that day will man remember, but of what avail will then remembering be?
25. يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي قَدَّمْتُ لِحَيَاتِي
He will say: "Alas the woe! Would that I had sent ahead something in my life."
26. فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَّا يُعَذِّبُ عَذَابَهُ أَحَدٌ
None can punish as He will punish on that day,
27. وَلَا يُوثِقُ وَثَاقَهُ أَحَدٌ
And none can bind as He will bind.
28. يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ
O you tranquil soul,
29. ارْجِعِي إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and well-pleasing Him.
30. فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي
"Enter then among My votaries,
31. وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي
Enter then My garden."
