90:1  I swear by this town
90:2  as you reside in this town
90:3  by the father and him whom he begot
90:4  certainly We created man in travail
90:5  Does he suppose that no one will ever have power over him
90:6  He says, ‘I have squandered immense wealth.’
90:7  Does he suppose that no one sees him
90:8  Have We not made for him two eyes
90:9  a tongue, and two lips
90:10  and shown him the two paths [of good and evil]
90:11  Yet he has not embarked upon the uphill task
90:12  And what will show you what is the uphill task
90:13  [It is] the freeing of a slave
90:14  or feeding [the needy] on a day of starvation
90:15  or an orphan among relatives
90:16  or a needy man in desolation
90:17  while being one of those who have faith and who enjoin one another to patience, and enjoin one another to compassion
90:18  They are the People of the Right Hand
90:19  But those who defy Our signs, they are the People of the Left Hand
90:20  [Imposed] upon them will be a closed Fire
