In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.
1By the night as it conceals;
2And by the day as it appears in glory;
3And by the creation of male and female.
4Verily, you strive for are diverse.
5So he who gives and fears Allah;
6And testifies to the best.
7We will indeed make smooth for him the path to bliss.
8But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self sufficient.
9And gives the lie to the best;
10We will indeed make smooth for him the path to misery;
11And will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong.
12Verily, We take upon Ourselves to guide.
13And verily, unto Us is the end and the beginning.
14Therefore do I warn you of a fire blazing fiercely;
15None shall reach it but those most unfortunate ones.1
16Who give the lie to truth and turn their backs.
17But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from it.
18Those who spend their wealth for increase in self purification.
19And have in their minds no favor from anyone for which a reward
is expected in return.
20But only the desire to seek for the countenance of their Lord
21And soon will they attain satisfaction.

1. One is not unfortunate when one makes an
informed decision against what is right. The unfortunate are those who are
swept away because they could not make up their minds.
In Romans 2:12-15,
For all who have sinned apart from the law will also perish apart from the
law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. For it
is not merely those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight. No,
it is those who do the law, who will be justified. For whenever gentiles,
who do not possess the law, do instinctively what the law requires, they are
a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that
what the law requires is written in their hearts, a fact to which their own
consciences testify, and their thoughts will either accuse or excuse them…
This text means
that all people are responsible for their sin. They may have the “law unto
themselves,” but that Law merely condemns them. It does not save them.
