092 - Soorah al-Layl - (The Night) - [Makkee]
In the Name of All‚h, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[092:001] By the night as it envelops.
[092:002] By the day as it appears in brightness.
[092:003] By Him Who created male and female.
[092:004] Certainly, your efforts and deeds are diverse (different in aims and purposes);
[092:005] As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to All‚h and fears Him,
[092:006] And believes in Al-Husn‚.
[092:007] We will make smooth for him the path of ease (goodness).
[092:008] But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient.
[092:009] And denies Al-Husn‚ (see the footnote of the Verse No. 6).
[092:010] We will make smooth for him the path for evil.
[092:011] And what will his wealth avail him when he goes down (in destruction)?
[092:012] Truly, on Us is (to give) guidance.
[092:013] And truly, to Us (belong) the last (Hereafter) and the first (this world).
[092:014] Therefore, I have warned you of a blazing Fire (Hell).
(V.92:6) A) Al-Husn‚: The Best (i.e. either L‚ il‚ha illall‚h: none has the right to be worshipped but All‚h) or a reward from All‚h (i.e. All‚h will compensate him for what he will spend in All‚h's way or bless him with Paradise).
B) See the footnote of (V.4:37).
(V.92:8) Narrated 'AlÓ [radhi-yAll‚hu 'anhu]: We were in the company of the Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] and he said, "There is none among you but has his place written for him, either in Paradise or in the Hell-fire." We said, "O All‚h's Messenger! Shall we depend (on this fact and give up work)?" He replied, "No! Carry on doing good deeds, for everybody will find easy (to do) such deeds as will lead him to his destined place." Then the Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] recited: "As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to All‚h and fears Him, and believes in Al-Husn‚. We will make smooth for him the path of ease ..." (V.92: 5-10) [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/4947 (O.P.472)]
