Shakir rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 Nay! I swear by this city
90:2 And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-
90:3 And the begetter and whom he begot
90:4 Certainly We have created man to be in distress
90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him
90:6 He shall say: I have wasted much wealth
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him
90:8 Have We not given him two eyes
90:9 And a tongue and two lips
90:10 And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways
90:11 But he would not attempt the uphill road
90:12 And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is
90:13 (It is) the setting free of a slave
90:14 Or the giving of food in a day of hunge
90:15 To an orphan, having relationship
90:16 Or to the poor man lying in the dust
90:17 Then he is of those who believe and charge one another to show patience, and charge one another to show compassion
90:18 These are the people of the right hand
90:19 And (as for) those who disbelieve in our communications, they are the people of the left hand
90:20 On them is fire closed over
