I do call to witness this City;
And thou art a freeman of this City;
And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;
Verily We have created man into toil and struggle
Thinketh he, that none hath power over him
He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance
Thinketh he that none beholdeth him
Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?
And a tongue, and a pair of lips?
And shown him the two highways
But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep
And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?
(It is:) freeing the bondman
Or the giving of food in a day of privatio
To the orphan with claims of relationship
Or to the indigent (down) in the dust
Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion
Such are the Companions of the Right Hand
But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand
On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round)
