Rashad Khalifa rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I solemnly swear by this town
90:2 The town where you live
90:3 The begetting and the begotten
90:4 We created the human being to work hard (to redeem himself)
90:5 Does he think that no one will ever call him to account
90:6 He boasts, "I spent so much money!"
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him
90:8 Did we not give him two eyes
90:9 A tongue and two lips
90:10 Did we not show him the two paths
90:11 He should choose the difficult path
90:12 Which one is the difficult path
90:13 The freeing of slaves
90:14 Feeding, during the time of hardship
90:15 Orphans who are related
90:16 Or the poor who is in need
90:17 And being one of those who believe, and exhorting one another to be steadfast, and exhorting one another to be kind
90:18 These have deserved happiness
90:19 As for those who disbelieved in our revelations, they have incurred misery
90:20 They will be confined in the Hellfire
