Book 90


The City

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.
