Faridul Haque rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this city (Mecca) -
90:2 For you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) are in this city.
90:3 And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you - his illustrious son!
90:4 We have indeed created man surrounded by hardships.
90:5 Does man think that no one will ever have power over him?
90:6 He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.”
90:7 Does man think that no one saw him?
90:8 Did We not make two eyes for him?
90:9 And a tongue and two lips?
90:10 And did We not guide him to the two elevated things?
90:11 So he did not quickly enter the steep valley.
90:12 And what have you understood, what the valley is!
90:13 The freeing of a slave!
90:14 Or the feeding on a day of hunger.
90:15 Of a related orphan,
90:16 Or of a homeless needy person!
90:17 And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another.
90:18 These are the people of the right.
90:19 And those who denied Our signs, are the people of the left.
90:20 Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them.
