And you, [O Muúammad], are free of restriction in this city -
And [by] the father and that which was born [of him],
We have certainly created man into hardship.
Does he think that never will anyone overcome him?
He says, |I have spent wealth in abundance.
Does he think that no one has seen him?
Have We not made for him two eyes?
And brought [within view], that Day, is Hell - that Day, man will remember, but what good to him will be the remembrance?
He will say, |Oh, I wish I had sent ahead [some good] for my life.
So on that Day, none will punish [as severely] as His punishment,
And none will bind [as severely] as His binding [of the evildoers].
[To the righteous it will be said], |O reassured soul,
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him],
And enter among My [righteous] servants
And enter My Paradise.
I swear by this city, Makkah -
And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion.
Those are the companions of the right.
And a tongue and two lips?
And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass?
It is the freeing of a slave
Or feeding on a day of severe hunger
An orphan of near relationship
Or a needy person in misery
And have shown him the two ways?
But he has not broken through the difficult pass.
