3 Thy Lord hath not forsaken thee nor doth He hate thee,

4 And verily the latter portion will be better for thee than the former,

5 And verily thy Lord will give unto thee so that thou wilt be content.

7 Did He not find thee wandering and direct (thee) ?

10 Therefor the beggar drive not away,

11 Therefor of the bounty of thy Lord be thy discourse.
