Did you notice?
90:1  I swear by this city,
90:2  where you, live freely?
90:3  And by a father, and all his offspring!
90:4  Every human We created experiences hardship.
90:5  Does he really think no one has control over him?
90:6  He boasts, “I have spent a huge amount of wealth!”
90:7  Does he really think no one has seen him?
90:8  Haven’t We given him two eyes,
90:9  a tongue and two lips?
90:10  We showed him the two steep paths of good and evil?
90:11  He hasn’t yet set foot on the steep mountain track.
90:12  What can explain to you the mountain track?
90:13  It is to free a slave,
90:14  to feed on a day of severe hunger
90:15  an orphan relative,
90:16  or a penniless and distressed person.
90:17  Only then is he a believer, who instruct each other to be patient and kind.
90:18  They will get Book of Deeds in the right hand.
90:19  But those who denied Our signs, will get it in the left hand,
90:20  the Fire closing in around them
