وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَىٰ ( 1 ) By the night when it covers وَالنَّهَارِ إِذَا تَجَلَّىٰ ( 2 ) And [by] the day when it appears وَمَا خَلَقَ الذَّكَرَ وَالْأُنثَىٰ ( 3 ) And [by] He who created the male and female, إِنَّ سَعْيَكُمْ لَشَتَّىٰ ( 4 ) Indeed, your efforts are diverse. فَأَمَّا مَنْ أَعْطَىٰ وَاتَّقَىٰ ( 5 ) As for he who gives and fears Allah وَصَدَّقَ بِالْحُسْنَىٰ ( 6 ) And believes in the best [reward], فَسَنُيَسِّرُهُ لِلْيُسْرَىٰ ( 7 ) We will ease him toward ease. وَأَمَّا مَن بَخِلَ وَاسْتَغْنَىٰ ( 8 ) But as for he who withholds and considers himself free of need وَكَذَّبَ بِالْحُسْنَىٰ ( 9 ) And denies the best [reward], فَسَنُيَسِّرُهُ لِلْعُسْرَىٰ ( 10 ) We will ease him toward difficulty. وَمَا يُغْنِي عَنْهُ مَالُهُ إِذَا تَرَدَّىٰ ( 11 ) And what will his wealth avail him when he falls? إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا لَلْهُدَىٰ ( 12 ) Indeed, [incumbent] upon Us is guidance. وَإِنَّ لَنَا لَلْآخِرَةَ وَالْأُولَىٰ ( 13 ) And indeed, to Us belongs the Hereafter and the first [life]. فَأَنذَرْتُكُمْ نَارًا تَلَظَّىٰ ( 14 ) So I have warned you of a Fire which is blazing. لَا يَصْلَاهَا إِلَّا الْأَشْقَى ( 15 ) None will [enter to] burn therein except the most wretched one. الَّذِي كَذَّبَ وَتَوَلَّىٰ ( 16 ) Who had denied and turned away. وَسَيُجَنَّبُهَا الْأَتْقَى ( 17 ) But the righteous one will avoid it - الَّذِي يُؤْتِي مَالَهُ يَتَزَكَّىٰ ( 18 ) [He] who gives [from] his wealth to purify himself وَمَا لِأَحَدٍ عِندَهُ مِن نِّعْمَةٍ تُجْزَىٰ ( 19 ) And not [giving] for anyone who has [done him] a favor to be rewarded إِلَّا ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ رَبِّهِ الْأَعْلَىٰ ( 20 ) But only seeking the countenance of his Lord, Most High. وَلَسَوْفَ يَرْضَىٰ ( 21 ) And he is going to be satisfied.

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or fewer.

Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Jamaica has 95 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
{{PD-Art}} template without license parameter: please specify why the underlying work is public domain in both the source country and the United States
