90:6  He says, “I have destroyed plenty of wealth.”
90:7  Does he think that no one sees him ?
90:8  Did We not make for him two eyes,
90:9  and a tongue and two lips,
90:10  and show him the two high ways (of good and evil)?
90:11  But he did not attempt the uphill (road).
90:12  And what will make you realize what the uphill (road) is?
90:13  Freeing a slave,
90:14  or feeding during a period of hunger,
90:15  an orphan having relationship,
90:16  or the dusty poor,

90:20  Fire will be closed over them (enveloping them from all sides).
