I swear by this town,
and you [Prophet] are free to dwell in this town,
And [I swear by] a father and his offspring,
We have created human being for a life of hardship.
Does he thinks that no one will have power over him?
"I have wasted much money," he says,
Does he think that no one sees him?
Have We not given him two eyes?
And a tongue and two lips
and have shown him the two ways [of good and evil]?
But he did not take the difficult path.
And how would you know what is the difficult path?
It is to free a slave,
or to feed on a day of hunger
an orphaned relative
or a needy person in distress.
Then to become one of those who believe and urge one another to endure and to urge each other to be compassionate.
Those are the people of righteousness.
But those who defy Our revelations are the people of despair.
With the fire closing in above them.
