Dr. Munir Munshey rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by (the sanctity of) this town (of Makkah)!
90:2 (Because) you (oh Muhammad, SAW), are allowed in this town.
90:3 By the father (the first man, prophet Adam), and (all) the children he begot!
90:4 Surely, We have fashioned man to toil (and undergo a trial).
90:5 Does man think that nobody has any power over him?
90:6 (Boastfully) he says, "I have squandered heaps of wealth."
90:7 Does he think nobody watches over him?
90:8 Did We not give him two eyes?
90:9 A tongue, and the lips?
90:10 And showed him the two (divergent) paths (of good and evil)?
90:11 But man does not attempt the harder (uphill course).
90:12 And how would you know what the harder course (of action) is?
90:13 (It is) freeing slaves,
90:14 And on a day of hunger, feeding (the hungry),
90:15  Orphans among the kinsfolk,
90:16 And the needy among the destitute.
90:17 Furthermore, (the harder course is) to be among those who believe and persevere (in belief), and persevere with kindness and compassion.
90:18 Such are the people of the right side _ (the righteous ones).
90:19 While those who disbelieve Our verses (and Our signs) are the people of the left side _ (the rebellious ones)!
90:20 Fire shall besiege and beset them, all around.
