90:1 - Nay, I swear by this city -
90:2 - And thou art an indweller of this city -
90:3 - And the begetter and that which he begat,
90:4 - We verily have created man in an atmosphere:
90:5 - Thinketh he that none hath power over him?
90:6 - And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth:
90:7 - Thinketh he that none beholdeth him?
90:8 - Did We not assign unto him two eyes
90:9 - And a tongue and two lips,
90:10 - And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways?
90:11 - But he hath not attempted the Ascent -
90:12 - Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Ascent is! -
90:13 - (It is) to free a slave,
90:14 - And to feed in the day of hunger.
90:15 - An orphan near of kin,
90:16 - Or some poor wretch in misery,
90:17 - And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity.
90:18 - Their place will be on the right hand.
90:19 - But those who disbelieve Our revelations, their place will be on the left hand.
90:20 - Fire will be an awning over them.
