Surah al Kauthar,al Maun (Alms Giving),Quraysh

Surat Quraysh (Arabic: سورة قريش‎) (after the tribe of Quraysh) is the 106th chapter of the Qur'an. It is a Makkan sura consisting of 4 ayat. It urges the Quraysh tribe who dominated Mecca to serve Allah, who had protected them, for the sake of their own future.

It forms a pair with the preceding sura, al-Fil, reminding the Quraysh of the favors that God had bestowed on them; indeed, it is said that in Ubayy ibn Ka'b's copy of the Quran they were written together as a single sura. The Kaaba was central to the life of Quraish, being a center of pilgrimage which brought much trade and prestige; Surat al-Fil describes how God saved the Kaaba from destruction, while surat Quraish describes God as Lord of that Kaaba and urges Quraish to worship Him so that, among other things, He should protect them on their trading journeys.

Quran Chapter 107 - Quran Translation of Surah Al-Maun (Alms Giving)

1 Have you seen him who denies the Recompense?
2 That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly),
3 And urges not the feeding of AlMiskeen (the poor),
4 So woe unto those performers of Salat (prayers) (hypocrites),
5 Who delay their Salat (prayer) from their stated fixed times,
6 Those who do good deeds only to be seen (of men),
7 And refuse Al-Maoon (small kindnesses e.g. salt, sugar
