al-Balad (The City, This Countryside)
as rendered by Ali Quli Qara'i

Ali Quli Qara'i rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
---
90:1 I swear by this town,
90:2 as you reside in this town;
90:3 by the father and him whom he begot:
90:4 certainly We created man in travail.
90:5 Does he suppose that no one will ever have power over him?
90:6 He says, ‘I have squandered immense wealth.’
90:7 Does he suppose that no one sees him?
90:8 Have We not made for him two eyes,
90:9 a tongue, and two lips,
90:10 and shown him the two paths [of good and evil]?
90:11 Yet he has not embarked upon the uphill task.
90:12 And what will show you what is the uphill task?
90:13 [It is] the freeing of a slave,
90:14 or feeding [the needy] on a day of starvation,
90:15 or an orphan among relatives,
90:16 or a needy man in desolation,
90:17 while being one of those who have faith and who enjoin one another to patience, and enjoin one another to compassion.
90:18 They are the People of the Right Hand.
90:19 But those who defy Our signs, they are the People of the Left Hand.
90:20 [Imposed] upon them will be a closed Fire.
