Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 Nay! I bring to witness this city (Makka)
90:2 — and you are a freeman and a citizen of this city
90:3 And (I bring to witness) the begetter (father) and that (son) which he begot
90:4 Verily, We have created the human being to face hardship
90:5 Does he think that none will (ever) object against him
90:6 He says (regretfully): “I have spent enormous wealth!”
90:7 Does he think that none has watched him (— neither Allah, nor the two angels imposed on him)
90:8 Have We not made for him a pair of eyes
90:9 And a tongue, and a pair of lips
90:10 And We showed him the two ways (the righteous as well as the evil one)
90:11 But he has not yet passed through the difficult terrain
90:12 And what has made you realise what Al-Aqaba (the difficult terrain) is
90:13 It is freeing or getting freed one (human) neck from (any sort of) enslavement
90:14 Or providing food in a day of famine and hunger
90:15 to Yatim (weak in society, or an orphan,) near of kin
90:16 or an indigent in full contentment
90:17 Then he became of those who accepted Faith, and they recommended to one another for perseverance and patience; and they recommended one another for pity and compassion
90:18 Such are the people of the desirable site
90:19 And those who disbelieved in Ayaatina: they are the people of the site devoid of (Allah’s) mercy
90:20 over them (will be) Fire, made completely covered over them with no outlet
