Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

I do swear by this city ˹of Mecca˺—

    

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

even though you ˹O Prophet˺ are subject to abuse in this city—

   ﭿ

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

and by every parent and ˹their˺ child!

     

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Indeed, We have created humanity in ˹constant˺ struggle.

      

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Do they think that no one has power over them,

    

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

boasting, “I have wasted enormous wealth!”?

     

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Do they think that no one sees them?

    

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Have We not given them two eyes,

  

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

a tongue, and two lips;

  

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

and shown them the two ways ˹of right and wrong˺?
