Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this city––
90:2 and you [Prophet] are an inhabitant of this city––
90:3 [I swear] by parent and offspring,
90:4 that We have created man for toil and trial.
90:5 Does he think that no one will have power over him?
90:6 ‘I have squandered great wealth,’ he says.
90:7 Does he think no one observes him?
90:8 Did We not give him eyes,
90:9 a tongue, lips,
90:10 and point out to him the two clear ways [of good and evil]?
90:11 Yet he has not attempted the steep path.
90:12 What will explain to you what the steep path is?
90:13 It is to free a slave,
90:14 to feed at a time of hunger
90:15 an orphaned relative
90:16 or a poor person in distress,
90:17 and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion.
90:18 Those who do this will be on the right-hand side,
90:19 but those who disbelieve in Our revelations will be on the left-hand side,
90:20 and the Fire will close in on them.
