90:1  I swear by this cit
90:2  and you are dwelling in this cit
90:3  and by parent and offspring
90:4  that We have created man into a life of toil and trial
90:5  Does he think then that no one has power over him
90:6  He says, I have spent enormous wealth
90:7  Does he then think that no one sees him
90:8  Have We not given him two eyes
90:9  and a tongue, and a pair of lips
90:10  and shown him the two paths
90:11  But he has not attempted the ascent
90:12  What will explain to you what the ascent is
90:13  It is the freeing of a slave
90:14  or the feeding in times of famin
90:15  of an orphaned relativ
90:16  or some needy person in distress
90:17  and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion
90:18  Those who do so are the people of the right hand
90:19  and [as for] those who are bent on denying the truth of Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand
90:20  and the Fire will close in on them
