90:1  I swear by this city (the world in which I live)...
90:2  That you are free of restriction herein!
90:3  And (I swear) by the One who gives birth (to man) and that which is born of him,
90:4  We have certainly created man in stages of difficulty!
90:5  Does he now think that none can overpower him?
90:6  He says, “I have spent much wealth.”
90:7  Does he think nobody can see him?
90:8  Did We not form two eyes for him?
90:9  A tongue and two lips...
90:10  And showed him the two ways (of falsity and Truth)!
90:11  But he did not have (the courage) to climb that steep hill!
90:12  Do you know what that steep hill is?
90:13  It is to liberate from slavery (to free consciousness from its enslavement to the body)!
90:14  Or to feed another while hungry!
90:15  (To feed) an orphan of near relation.
90:16  Or to feed the impoverished one who is in distress.
90:17  And then to be of those who believe and advise patience and mercy to one another.
90:18  These are the people of the right (the fortunate ones).
90:19  But those who deny Our signs, they are the people of the left (the unfortunate ones).
90:20  They are enclosed and trapped in Fire!
