N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
---
90:1 I SWEAR by this city
90:2 (and you¹ are a resident of this city),
90:3 by the begetter² and all whom he begot:
90:4 We created man to try him with affliction.
90:5 Does he think that none has power over him?
90:6 I have squandered vast riches!‘ he says.
90:7 Does he think that none observed him?
90:8 Have We not given him two eyes,
90:9 a tongue, and two lips,
90:10 and shown him the two paths?
90:11 Yet he would not scale the Height.
90:12 Would that you knew what the Height is.
90:13 It is the freeing of a slave;
90:14 the feeding, in the day of famine,
90:15 of an orphaned relation
90:16 or a needy man in distress;
90:17 to have faith and to enjoin fortitude and mercy.
90:18 Such are those that shall stand on the right hand;
90:19 but those that deny Our revelations shall stand on the left,
90:20 with a Fire close above them.
