In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[90.1] Nay! I swear by this city.
[90.2] And you shall be made free from obligation in this city--
[90.3] And the begetter and whom he begot.
[90.4] Certainly We have created man to be in distress.
[90.5] Does he think that no one has power over him?
[90.6] He shall say: I have wasted much wealth.
[90.7] Does he think that no one sees him?
[90.8] Have We not given him two eyes,
[90.9] And a tongue and two lips,
[90.10] And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways?
[90.11] But he would not attempt the uphill road,
[90.12] And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is?
[90.13] (It is) the setting free of a slave,
[90.14] Or the giving of food in a day of hunger
[90.15] To an orphan, having relationship,
[90.16] Or to the poor man lying in the dust.
[90.17] Then he is of those who believe and charge one another to show patience, and charge one another to show compassion.
[90.18] These are the people of the right hand.
[90.19] And (as for) those who disbelieve in our communications, they are the people of the left hand.
[90.20] On them is fire closed over.
