Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear (or call to witness) this City (Mecca)
90:2 And you (Muhammad) are a dweller of this City
90:3 And the (mystic ties) of Parent and Child
90:4 We have surely created man in suffering (struggle, trouble, sorrow)
90:5 Does he think that none has power over him
90:6 He says, "I have squandered wealth in plenty;"
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him
90:8 Have We not made for him two eye
90:9 And a tongue, and two lips
90:10 And guided him in the two highways
90:11 But he has not attempted the ascent
90:12 And what will explain to you the ascent
90:13 It is freeing captives (or prisoners, slaves, the restricted or bound)
90:14 Or feeding on the day of privation
90:15 An orphan who is a kin
90:16 Or a destitute lying in the dust (of misery)
90:17 And again (it is) to be of those who believe and encourage each other to patience, and encourage each other to mercy
90:18 These are the fellows of the right
90:19 But those who disbelieve in our signs, they are the fellows of the left
90:20 For them is the enclosing Fire
