Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 Nay! I bring to witness this city (Makka);
90:2 — and you are a freeman and a citizen of this city.
90:3 And (I bring to witness) the begetter (father) and that (son) which he begot.
90:4 Verily, We have created the human being to face hardship.
90:5 Does he think that none will (ever) object against him?
90:6 He says (regretfully): “I have spent enormous wealth!”
90:7 Does he think that none has watched him (— neither Allah, nor the two angels imposed on him)?
90:8 Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?
90:9 And a tongue, and a pair of lips?
90:10 And We showed him the two ways (the righteous as well as the evil one).
90:11 But he has not yet passed through the difficult terrain.
90:12 And what has made you realise what Al-Aqaba (the difficult terrain) is?
90:13 It is freeing or getting freed one (human) neck from (any sort of) enslavement.
90:14 Or providing food in a day of famine and hunger,
90:15 to Yatim (weak in society, or an orphan,) near of kin,
90:16 or an indigent in full contentment.
90:17 Then he became of those who accepted Faith, and they recommended to one another for perseverance and patience; and they recommended one another for pity and compassion.
90:18 Such are the people of the desirable site.
90:19 And those who disbelieved in Ayaatina: they are the people of the site devoid of (Allah’s) mercy,
90:20 over them (will be) Fire, made completely covered over them with no outlet.
