90:1  I do swear by this city ˹of Mecca˺—
90:2  even though you ˹O Prophet˺ are subject to abuse in this city—
90:3  and by every parent and ˹their˺ child!
90:4  Indeed, We have created humankind in ˹constant˺ struggle.
90:5  Do they think that no one has power over them,
90:6  boasting, “I have wasted enormous wealth!”?
90:7  Do they think that no one sees them?
90:8  Have We not given them two eyes,
90:9  a tongue, and two lips;
90:10  and shown them the two ways ˹of right and wrong˺?
90:11  If only they had attempted the challenging path ˹of goodness instead˺!
90:12  And what will make you realize what ˹attempting˺ the challenging path is?
90:13  It is to free a slave;
90:14  or to give food in times of famine
90:15  to an orphaned relative
90:16  or to a poor person in distress;
90:17  and—above all—to be one of those who have faith and urge each other to perseverance and urge each other to compassion.
90:18  These are the people of the right.
90:19  As for those who deny Our signs, they are the people of the left.
90:20  The Fire will be sealed over them.
