090 : The City

90:1
I do call to witness this City;-

90:2
And thou art a freeman of this City;-

90:3
And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;-

90:4
Verily We have created man into toil and struggle.

90:5
Thinketh he, that none hath power over him?

90:6
He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance!

90:7
Thinketh he that none beholdeth him?

90:8
Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?-

90:9
And a tongue, and a pair of lips?-

90:10
And shown him the two highways?

90:11
But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep.

90:12
And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?-

90:13
(It is:) freeing the bondman;

90:14
Or the giving of food in a day of privation

90:15
To the orphan with claims of relationship,

90:16
Or to the indigent (down) in the dust.

90:17
Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion.

90:18
Such are the Companions of the Right Hand.

90:19
But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand.

90:20
On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round).
