Syed Vickar Ahamed rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I (reference is to Allah) do swear by this City (of Makkah);
90:2 That you (O Prophet!) are a free-man of this City;
90:3 And (with the ties of) parent and child;
90:4 Surely, We have created man into hard work and struggle.
90:5 Does he think, that no one has power over him?
90:6 He may (wrongly) say: "I have wasted away a lot of wealth!"
90:7 Does he think that no one oversees him?
90:8 Have We not made a pair of eyes for him?
90:9 And a tongue and a pair of lips?
90:10 And shown him the two highways? (The right and the wrong)
90:11 But he has made no haste for the path that is hard,
90:12 And what will explain to you the path that is hard?
90:13 (It is) freeing the slave;
90:14 Or the giving of food in a day of want (and suffering),
90:15 To the orphan with claims of relationship,
90:16 Or to the needy one (down) in the dust.
90:17 Then will he be (one) of those who believe and practices patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and practices acts of kindness and compassion.
90:18 Such are the companions of the right hand.
90:19 But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) companions of the left hand.
90:20 On them will be the Fire covering over (all around).
