90. THE CITY

The City

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1. No, I do swear by this city (Makkah), 2. and you are a dweller of this city, 3. and by the begetter (father) and that which he begot (son), 4. We have indeed created man in hardship. 5. Does he think that no one will ever have power over him? 6. He says, I have destroyed plenty of wealth. 7. Does he think that no one sees him ? 8. Did We not make for him two eyes, 9. and a tongue and two lips, 10. and show him the two high ways (of good and evil)? 11. But he did not attempt the uphill (road). 12. And what will make you realize what the uphill (road) is? 13. Freeing a slave, 14. or feeding during a period of hunger, 15. an orphan having relationship, 16. or the dusty poor, 17. then to be among those who believe and recommend to each other patience and recommend to each other compassion. 18. Those are the companions of the right hand (side). 19. And those who do not believe in Our signs, they are the companions of the left hand (side). 20. Fire will be closed over them (enveloping them from all sides). (R 1)
