Did you notice?
90:1  I swear by this (sacred) city (Makkah)
90:2  – And you (O Messenger) are a dweller in this city. &ndash
90:3  And by him (Abraham) who begets, and him (Muhammad) whom he begot
90:4  We have assuredly created human in (a life of) trial and hardship
90:5  Does human think that no one has power over him
90:6  He says: "I have consumed abundant wealth!"
90:7  Does he, then, think that no one ever sees him
90:8  Have We not made for him a pair of eyes
90:9  And a tongue and two lips
90:10  And shown him the two ways (one to follow and one to avoid)
90:11  Yet he makes no effort to make the ascent
90:12  What enables you to perceive what the ascent is
90:13  It is the freeing of a bondsman (a slave or a captive)
90:14  Or feeding, on a day of privation
90:15  An orphan near of kin
90:16  Or a poor wretch in misery
90:17  And being, besides, of those who believe and exhort one another to patience and exhort one another to pity and compassion
90:18  Those are they who are the people of happiness and prosperity (who will be given their Records in their right hands on Judgment Day)
90:19  But those who disbelieve in Our Revelations – they are the people of wretchedness (who will be given their Records in their left hands)
90:20  On them is Fire closed over
