The Koran Interpreted Translation by A.J. Arberry

107 CHARITY (1 – 7)

The Qurʾan Translation by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

107. Common Kindnesses (1 – 7)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Hast thou seen him who cries lies to the Doom? That is he who repulses the orphan and urges not the feeding of the needy. So woe to those that pray 5and are heedless of their prayers, to those who make display and refuse charity.

A Meccan sura describing some characteristics of a person who denies the Judgement.

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

1[Prophet], have you considered the person who denies the Judgement? 2It is he who pushes aside the orphan 3and does not urge others to feed the needy.4So woe to those who pray 5but are heedless of their prayer; 6those who are all show 7and forbid common kindnesses.
