Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear an oath by this land
90:2 thou art allowed in this land
90:3 and by ones who are your parents and what is procreated,
90:4 truly, We created the human being in trouble.
90:5 Assumes he that none has power over him?
90:6 He says: I have caused abundant wealth to perish.
90:7 Assumes he that none sees him?
90:8 Make we not two eyes for him
90:9 and a tongue and two lips
90:10 and guided him to the two open highways?
90:11 Yet he rushed not onto the steep ascent.
90:12 What will cause thee to recognize what the steep ascent is?
90:13 It is the liberating of a bondsperson
90:14 or feeding on a day possessing famine
90:15 an orphan, possessor of kinship,
90:16 or a needy, possessor of misery.
90:17 Again, it had been among those who believed and counseled one another to having patience and counseled one another to clemency.
90:18 Those will be the Companions of the Right.
90:19 But they who were ungrateful for Our signs they will be the Companions of the Left
90:20 and over them will be fire, that which is closing in.
