90:2 The town where you live. وَأَنْتَ حِلٌّ بِهَذَا الْبَلَدِ
90:3 The begetting and the begotten. وَوَالِدٍ وَمَا وَلَدَ

90:6 He boasts, "I spent so much money!" يَقُولُ أَهْلَكْتُ مَالًا لُبَدًا
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him? أَيَحْسَبُ أَنْ لَمْ يَرَهُ أَحَدٌ
90:8 Did we not give him two eyes? أَلَمْ نَجْعَلْ لَهُ عَيْنَيْنِ
90:9 A tongue and two lips? وَلِسَانًا وَشَفَتَيْنِ

90:16 Or the poor who is in need. أَوْ مِسْكِينًا ذَا مَتْرَبَةٍ
90:17 And being one of those who believe, and exhorting one another to be steadfast, and exhorting one another to be kind. ثُمَّ كَانَ مِنْ الَّذِينَ ءامَنُوا وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْمَرْحَمَةِ
90:18 These have deserved happiness. أُوْلَئِكَ أَصْحَبُ الْمَيْمَنَةِ
90:19 As for those who disbelieved in our revelations, they have incurred misery. وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بِءايَتِنَا هُمْ أَصْحَبُ الْمَشْءمَةِ
90:20 They will be confined in the Hellfire. عَلَيْهِمْ نَارٌ مُؤصَدَةٌ

Praise be to God Lord of the universe.
