90:1  I swear by this city (Mecca)
90:2  For you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) are in this city
90:3  And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you - his illustrious son
90:4  We have indeed created man surrounded by hardships
90:5  Does man think that no one will ever have power over him
90:6  He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.”
90:7  Does man think that no one saw him
90:8  Did We not make two eyes for him
90:9  And a tongue and two lips
90:10  And did We not guide him to the two elevated things
90:11  So he did not quickly enter the steep valley
90:12  And what have you understood, what the valley is
90:13  The freeing of a slave
90:14  Or the feeding on a day of hunger
90:15  Of a related orphan
90:16  Or of a homeless needy person
90:17  And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another
90:18  These are the people of the right
90:19  And those who denied Our signs, are the people of the left
90:20  Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them
