T.B.Irving rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by [this] countryside,
90:2 you are a native settled on this land
90:3 as well as any parent and whatever he may father.
90:4 We have created man under stress.
90:5 Does he reckon that no one can do anything against him?
90:6 He says: I have used up piles of money!
90:7 Does he consider that no one sees him?
90:8 Have We not granted him both eyes,
90:9 a tongue and two lips,
90:10 and guided him along both highroads?
90:11 Yet he does not tackle the Obstacle!
90:12 What will make you realize what the Obstacle is?
90:13 [It means] redeeming the captive,
90:14 or feeding
90:15 some orphaned relative on a day of famine
90:16 or some needy person in distress.
90:17 Then he will act like someone who believes, recommends patience and encourages mercifulness.
90:18 Those will be the companions on the right-hand side,
90:19 while the ones who disbelieve in Our signs will be companions on the sinister side:
90:20 above them a fire will hem them in.
