Maulana Muhammad Ali rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 Nay, I call to witness this City!
90:2 And thou wilt be made free from obligation in this City --
90:3 And the begetter and he whom he begot!
90:4 We have certainly created man to face difficulties.
90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him?
90:6 He will say: I have wasted much wealth.
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 pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways?
90:11 But he attempts not the uphill road;
90:12 And what will make thee comprehend what the uphill road is?
90:13 (It is) to free a slave,
90:14 Or to feed in a day of hunger
90:15 An orphan nearly related,
90:16 Or the poor man lying in the dust.
90:17 Then he is of those who believe and exhort one another to patience, and exhort one another to mercy.
90:18 These are the people of the right hand.
90:19 And those who disbelieve in Our messages, they are the people of the left hand.
90:20 On them is Fire closed over.
