Farook Malik rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
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 famine
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.
