The Clear Quran, Dr. Mustafa Khattab rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I do swear by this city ˹of Mecca˺—
90:2 even though you ˹O Prophet˺ are subject to abuse in this city—
90:3 and by every parent and ˹their˺ child!
90:4 Indeed, We have created humankind in ˹constant˺ struggle.
90:5 Do they think that no one has power over them,
90:6 boasting, “I have wasted enormous wealth!”?
90:7 Do they think that no one sees them?
90:8 Have We not given them two eyes,
90:9 a tongue, and two lips;
90:10 and shown them the two ways ˹of right and wrong˺?
90:11 If only they had attempted the challenging path ˹of goodness instead˺!
90:12 And what will make you realize what ˹attempting˺ the challenging path is?
90:13 It is to free a slave;
90:14 or to give food in times of famine
90:15 to an orphaned relative
90:16 or to a poor person in distress;
90:17 and—above all—to be one of those who have faith and urge each other to perseverance and urge each other to compassion.
90:18 These are the people of the right.
90:19 As for those who deny Our signs, they are the people of the left.
90:20 The Fire will be sealed over them.
