1 . By the fig, by the olive,

2 . By Mount Sinai,

3 . By the yonder secure city,

4 . Assuredly We have created man in goodliest mould,

5 . Thereafter We cause him to return to the lowest of the low,

6 . Save those who believe and work righteous Works. Theirs shall be hire unending.

7 . What hencefort shall make thee belie the Requital?

8 . Is not Allah the Greatest of the rulers?
