6He says: “I have spent wealth in abundance!” 7Does he think that no one ever sees him?

8,9Have We not given him two eyes, a tongue and two lips?

10And We have shown him the distinct two paths.

11But he has not rushed to that steep ramp.

12And what has made you know what that steep ramp is?

13It is freeing of slave 14,15or feeding an orphan who is around on a day of severe hunger16or those poor, jobless in misery. 17And then being among those who have believed and advise patience to one another and advise mercy to one another.

18Those are the companions of happiness, high positions.

19And those who conceal Our Ayat are the ones who are the companions of the ominous-sinister. 20Upon them is a fire, gates of which are closed very tightly.
