Torres Al Haneef (partial translation) rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 "No, I swear by this citty (of Makkah) --"
90:2 and you (Mu?ammad) are a free man of this city
90:3 "by the father and his children,"
90:4 surely We have created man to endure hardship
90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him
90:6 "He (boastfully) says, 'I have spent so much money on whatever I wanted.'"
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him
90:8 "Have We not given him two eyes,"
90:9 "and a tongue and two lips,"
90:10 and shown him the two main roads (to good and evil)
90:11 But he has not tried the steep path
90:12 and what will make you understand what the steep path is
90:13 "It is to free a slave,"
90:14 "or to feed, on a day of hunger,"
90:15 "an orphan in the family,"
90:16 or some poor man in need
90:17 "and to be one of those who have faith, and encourage each other to patiently endure, and encourage each other to have mercy."
90:18 They are the Companions of the Right Hand
90:19 "And as for those who do not believe in Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left Hand;"
90:20 "above them is a Fire, enclosed."
