Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 No! I do swear by this City,
90:2 — And you are a free citizen of this City —
90:3 And by father and that which he begets,
90:4 We have certainly created man for hard work.
90:5 Does he think that no one has any control over him?
90:6 He claims, "I have squandered much wealth."
90:7 Does he think no one is keeping a watch on him?
90:8 Have We not made two eyes for him,
90:9 And a tongue and two lips,
90:10 And shown him the two ways [right and wrong]?
90:11 But he ventures not up the steep road;
90:12 And what do you understand what the steep road is?
90:13 Freeing a slave,
90:14 Or feeding on a day of extreme hunger,
90:15 An orphan closely related,
90:16 Or miserable poor man.
90:17 Then he becomes of those who believe and exhort one another to patience, and exhort one another to mercy.
90:18 These are the people of the right hand.
90:19 And those who suppress the Truth in Our Verses, those are the people of the left hand.
90:20 On them is Fire closing in.
