Wahiduddin Khan rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this cit
90:2 and you are dwelling in this cit
90:3 and by parent and offspring
90:4 that We have created man into a life of toil and trial
90:5 Does he think then that no one has power over him
90:6 He says, I have spent enormous wealth
90:7 Does he then think that no one sees him
90:8 Have We not given him two eyes
90:9 and a tongue, and a pair of lips
90:10 and shown him the two paths
90:11 But he has not attempted the ascent
90:12 What will explain to you what the ascent is
90:13 It is the freeing of a slave
90:14 or the feeding in times of famin
90:15 of an orphaned relativ
90:16 or some needy person in distress
90:17 and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion
90:18 Those who do so are the people of the right hand
90:19 and [as for] those who are bent on denying the truth of Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand
90:20 and the Fire will close in on them
