Sher Ali rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 Nay, I cite as witness this City -
90:2 And affirm that thou wilt, surely, alight in this City -
90:3 And I cite as witness the father and the son,
90:4 WE have, surely, created man to toil and struggle.
90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him?
90:6 He says, `I have wasted enormous 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 WE have pointed out to him the two highways of good and evil.
90:11 But he attempted not the steep ascent;
90:12 And what should make thee know what the steep ascent is?
90:13 It is the freeing of a slave,
90:14 Or, feeding on a day of hunger
90:15 An orphan near of kin,
90:16 Or, a poor man lying in the dust.
90:17 Then he should have been of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to mercy.
90:18 These are the people of the right hand.
90:19 But those who reject Our Signs, they are the people of the left hand.
90:20 On them will be Fire closed over.
