You can SEARCH IslamAwakened:
I (do not need to) swear by this town (‘Mecca’)
You are free, (O’ ‘Muhammad’, to punish or forgive the ‘Polytheists’) in this town.
By the father and that which he begets,
Indeed We have created man to cope with adversity
Does he think that no one can triumph over him?!
He says (boastfully): "I have squandered huge fortunes."
Does he think that no one sees him?
Have We not made for him two eyes,
A tongue, and two lips,
And shown him the two ways?
Yet he tried not to break through the ‘Steep Path’.
What would make you aware of what the ‘Steep Path’ might be?
It is setting a slave free
Or feeding hungry people in the days of famine,
An orphan near of kin,
Or a needy man living in misery,
Then he (who used to boast) is of those who adhere to Islamic monotheism, exhort one another to patience and exhort one another to compassion.
Those are the ‘companions of the right side’
But those who refuse to admit the truth of Our Revelations are the ‘companions of the left side’.
Upon them will be Fire closed over.
