Muhammad Sarwar rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca)
90:2 in which you are now living
90:3 or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael)
90:4 that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship.
90:5 Does He think that no one will ever have control over him?
90:6 (He boasts and shows off) saying, "I have spent a great deal of money (for the cause of God)".
90:7 Does he think that no one has seen him?
90:8 Have We not given him two eyes,
90:9 a tongue, and two lips?
90:10 Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil?
90:11 Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba
90:12 Would that you knew what Aqaba is!
90:13 It is the setting free of a slave
90:14 or, in a day of famine, the feeding of
90:15 an orphaned relative
90:16 and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of)
90:17 the believers who cooperate with others in patience (steadfastness) and kindness.
90:18 These are the people of the right hand.
90:19 As for those who disbelieve in Our revelations, they are the people of the left
90:20 who will be engulfed in the fire.
