←Prev   al-Balad (The City, This Countryside) as rendered by/in M. Farook Malik  Next→ 

Did you notice?
90:1  I swear by this city
90:2  where to assassinate) you (O Muhammad) have been made lawful in this city
90:3  And I swear by your father (Adam) and the children he begot (mankind)
90:4  certainly We have created man to be in stress
90:5  Does he think that none has power over him
90:6  He may boast: "I have squandered wealth in abundance!"
90:7  Does he think that no one observes him
90:8  Have We not given him two eyes to observe
90:9  One tongue and two lips to control it
90:10  Then shown him the two high ways (good leading towards paradise and evil leading towards hell)
90:11  Yet he does not attempt to tackle the Aqabah (steep path)
90:12  And what will explain to you what the Aqabah is
90:13  It is the freeing of a neck (slave) from bondage
90:14  or the giving of food in a day of famin
90:15  to an orphan relative
90:16  or to a needy in distress
90:17  besides this, he should be of those who believe, enjoin fortitude, encourage kindness and compassion
90:18  Such are the people of the right hand (going towards paradise)
90:19  But those who disbelieve Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand (going towards hell)
90:20  having fire all around them
