Mecca.—7 Verses.

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

What thinkest thou of him who treateth our RELIGION as a lie?
He it is who thrusteth away the orphan,
And stirreth not others up to feed the poor.
Woe to those who pray,
But in their prayer are careless;
Who make a shew of devotion,
But refuse help to the needy.
