Ali Ünal rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this (sacred) city (Makkah),
90:2 – And you (O Messenger) are a dweller in this city. –
90:3 And by him (Abraham) who begets, and him (Muhammad) whom he begot;
90:4 We have assuredly created human in (a life of) trial and hardship.
90:5 Does human think that no one has power over him?
90:6 He says: "I have consumed abundant wealth!"
90:7 Does he, then, think that no one ever sees him?
90:8 Have We not made for him a pair of eyes,
90:9 And a tongue and two lips,
90:10 And shown him the two ways (one to follow and one to avoid)?
90:11 Yet he makes no effort to make the ascent.
90:12 What enables you to perceive what the ascent is?
90:13 It is the freeing of a bondsman (a slave or a captive);
90:14 Or feeding, on a day of privation,
90:15 An orphan near of kin,
90:16 Or a poor wretch in misery;
90:17 And being, besides, of those who believe and exhort one another to patience and exhort one another to pity and compassion.
90:18 Those are they who are the people of happiness and prosperity (who will be given their Records in their right hands on Judgment Day).
90:19 But those who disbelieve in Our Revelations – they are the people of wretchedness (who will be given their Records in their left hands),
90:20 On them is Fire closed over.
