Sūra CVII.

Mā’ūn, or Neighbourly Needs.

In the name of God, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

1. Seest thou one
Who denies the Judgment
(To come)?

2. Then such is the (man)
Who repulses the orphan
(With harshness),

3. And encourages not
The feeding of the indigent.

4. So woe to the worshippers

5. Who are neglectful
Of their Prayers,

6. Those who (want but)
To be seen (of men),

7. But refuse (to supply)
(Even) neighbourly needs.
