90:1  I swear by this city–&ndash
90:2  and you [Prophet] are an inhabitant of this city–&ndash
90:3  [I swear] by parent and offspring
90:4  that We have created man for toil and trial
90:5  Does he think that no one will have power over him
90:6  ‘I have squandered great wealth,’ he says
90:7  Does he think no one observes him
90:8  Did We not give him eyes
90:9  a tongue, lips
90:10  and point out to him the two clear ways [of good and evil]
90:11  Yet he has not attempted the steep path
90:12  What will explain to you what the steep path is
90:13  It is to free a slave
90:14  to feed at a time of hunge
90:15  an orphaned relativ
90:16  or a poor person in distress
90:17  and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion
90:18  Those who do this will be on the right-hand side
90:19  but those who disbelieve in Our revelations will be on the left-hand side
90:20  and the Fire will close in on them
