Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I need not swear by the Lord of this land,
90:2 and though a dweller in this land!
90:3 Nor by the begetter and what he begets!
90:4 We have surely created man in trouble.
90:5 Does he think that none can do aught against him?
90:6 He says, I have wasted wealth in plenty;
90:7 does he think that no one sees him?
90:8 Have we not made for him two eyes
90:9 and a tongue, and two lips?
90:10 and guided him in the two highways?
90:11 but he will not attempt the steep!
90:12 And what shall make thee know what the steep is?
90:13 It is freeing captives,
90:14 or feeding on the day of famine,
90:15 an orphan who is akin,
90:16 or a poor man who lies in the dust;
90:17 and again (it is) to be of these who believe and encourage each other to patience, and encourage each other to mercy,-
90:18 these are the fellows of the right!
90:19 But those who disbelieve in our signs, they are the fellows of the left,
90:20 for them is fire that closes in!
