1 . I swear by yonder city
2 . And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city -
3 . And by the begetter and that which he begat,
4 . Assuredly We have created man in trouble.
5 . Deemest he that none will overpower him?
6 . He saith: ´I have wasted riches plenteous.
7 . Deemest he that none beholdeth him?
8 . Have We not, made for him two eyes
9 . And a tongue and two lips,
10 . And shown Unto him the two highways?
11 . Yet he attempteth not the steep,
12 . And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is?
13 . It is freeing the neck,
14 . Or, feeding, in a day of privation,
15 . An orphan, of kin,
16 . Or a poor man cleaving to the dust.
17 . Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion.
18 . These are the fellows of the righthand.
19 . And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand.
20 . Over them shall be Fire closing round.
