90:1I swear by this land.

90:2And you are a resident of this land.

90:3And by a father and what he fathered.

90:4We created man in distress.

90:5Does he think that no one has power over him?

90:6He says, “I have used up so much money.”

90:7Does he think that no one sees him?

90:8Did We not give him two eyes?

90:9And a tongue, and two lips?

90:10And We showed him the two ways?

90:11But he did not brave the ascent.

90:12And what will explain to you what the ascent is?

90:13The freeing of a slave.

90:14Or the feeding on a day of hunger.

90:15An orphan near of kin.

90:16Or a destitute in the dust.

90:17Then he becomes of those who believe, and advise one another to patience, and advise one another to kindness.

90:18These are the people of happiness.

90:19But as for those who defy Our revelations—these are the people of misery.

90:20Upon them is a padlocked Fire.
