Abdul Majid Daryabadi rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by yonder city
90:2 And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city -
90:3 And by the begetter and that which he begat,
90:4 Assuredly We have created man in trouble.
90:5 Deemest he that none will overpower him?
90:6 He saith: 'I have wasted riches plenteous.
90:7 Deemest he that none beholdeth him?
90:8 Have We not, made for him two eyes
90:9 And a tongue and two lips,
90:10 And shown Unto him the two highways?
90:11 Yet he attempteth not the steep,
90:12 And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is?
90:13 It is freeing the neck,
90:14 Or, feeding, in a day of privation,
90:15 An orphan, of kin,
90:16 Or a poor man cleaving to the dust.
90:17 Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion.
90:18 These are the fellows of the righthand.
90:19 And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand.
90:20 Over them shall be Fire closing round.
