The Study Quran rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 Nay, I swear by this land,
90:2 while thou art free in this land;
90:3 and [by] the begetter, and that which he begat,
90:4 truly We created man in travail.
90:5 Does he suppose that none will ever have power over him?
90:6 He says, “I have squandered vast wealth!”
90:7 Does he suppose that no one sees him?
90:8 Did We not make for him two eyes,
90:9 a tongue, and two lips,
90:10 and guide him upon the two highways?
90:11 Yet he has not assailed the steep pass.
90:12 And what will apprise thee of the steep pass?
90:13 [It is] the freeing of a slave,
90:14 or giving food at a time of famine
90:15 to an orphan near of kin,
90:16 or an indigent, clinging to the dust,
90:17 while being one of those who believe and exhort one another to patience, and exhort one another to compassion.
90:18 Those are the companions of the right.
90:19 And those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the companions of the left.
90:20 Upon them is a Fire enclosed.
