Section 1
1 Nay! I swear by this City
2 City where you are free
3 with those who bears and causes to bring about
4 Lo! We’ve created Mankind into hard work
5 he thinks none has power over him?
6 and boasts “i have spent massive wealth”
7 and thinks none sees him?
8 haven’t We given him pair of Eyes?
9 a Tongue and two (2) Lips?
10 shown him the Two (2) way’s?
11 but he doesn’t make an effort to rise
12 now what will tell you what rise is?
13 it‘s to free a neck (Slave)
14 or to feed in Day’s of hunger
15 to Orphan’s near Relation
16 or poor wretch cutting into dust
17 he is than a Believer who advises patience and sympathy
18 these are the ones of the Right Hand
19 and those who rejects Our Signs are of Left Hand
20 for they’ll have Fire closing over them
