Qur'an

 Revealed 35th  

90:1
I swear by this city, Mecca -

90:2
And you are free of restriction in this city -

90:3
And [by] the father and that which was born [of him],

90:4
We have certainly created man into hardship.

90:5
Does he think that never will anyone overcome him?

90:6
He says, "I have spent wealth in abundance."

90:7
Does he think that no one has seen him?

90:8
Have We not made for him two eyes?

90:9
And a tongue and two lips?

90:10
And have shown him the two ways?

90:11
But he has not broken through the difficult pass.

90:12
And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass?

90:13
It is the freeing of a slave

90:14
Or feeding on a day of severe hunger

90:15
An orphan of near relationship

90:16
Or a needy person in misery

90:17
And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion.

90:18
Those are the companions of the right. [*Matthew 25:32 - 40]

90:19
But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left.

90:20
Over them will be fire closed in.  [*Matthew 25:41 - 43]
