Wahiduddin Khan rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this city
90:2 and you are dwelling in this city
90:3 and by parent and offspring,
90:4 that We have created man into a life of toil and trial.
90:5 Does he think then that no one has power over him?
90:6 He says, I have spent enormous wealth.
90:7 Does he then think that no one sees him?
90:8 Have We not given him two eyes,
90:9 and a tongue, and a pair of lips,
90:10 and shown him the two paths?
90:11 But he has not attempted the ascent.
90:12 What will explain to you what the ascent is?
90:13 It is the freeing of a slave;
90:14 or the feeding in times of famine
90:15 of an orphaned relative
90:16 or some needy person in distress,
90:17 and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion.
90:18 Those who do so are the people of the right hand,
90:19 and [as for] those who are bent on denying the truth of Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand,
90:20 and the Fire will close in on them.
