When your Lord manifests with the angels, rank upon rank

By the break of the dawn, by the chosen ten sacred nights,
by the mystical language of numbers concealed in contrasting odd and even,
and by the night that passes away,
- in such transformations and contrasts in creation,
is not there enough evidences for those with perception?

Has it not reached to you how your Lord dealt with the past powerful generations
such as the people of ‘Ad, the people of Iram, the city of many pillars,
the like of which has never been created in the land, and with the Thamud,
who cut out huge rocks in the valley, and with Pharaoh, firm of worldly might?

All of them committed excesses in their lands, and caused much corruption in them:
so your Lord unleashed on them the scourge of punishment.
for indeed, your Lord is in observation!

And as for man,
when his Lord tries him and thus is generous to him
he thinks in pride, "My Lord has honored me."
But when He tries him and restricts his provision,
he loses his weak faith and start thinking, "My Lord has humiliated me, forsaken me."
No indeed, look at your state of thanklessness!
You show no kindness to the orphans,
nor do you urge one another to feed the poor,
and you greedily devour the rightful inheritance of the weak,
and you have a love of wealth which can never be satisfied.

No indeed!

When the earth is crushed and ground to dust,
when your Lord comes down with the angels, rank upon rank,
and the manifestation of God's Fury is made to appear on that Day,
then man will be mindful,
but what will being mindful then avail him?

He will say, ‘Oh, would that I had provided beforehand for my life!’

On that Day no one will punish as severely as He punishes,
and no one will bind as severely as His binding of the evildoers,
- Lord of Severity and Absolute Might.

But to the true deovtees, to the righteous, the Divine Voice will declare,
"O reassured soul, return to your Lord,
well-pleased, and well-pleasing.
Enter you, then, among My devotees! 
Enter My Garden of bliss!"

- Chapter of the Dawn Break, Surah 89 of the Quran
(a non linear retranslation)
