Talal A. Itani (new translation) rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this land.
90:2 And you are a resident of this land.
90:3 And by a father and what he fathered.
90:4 We created man in distress.
90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him?
90:6 He says, 'I have used up so much money.'
90:7 Does he think that no one sees him?
90:8 Did We not give him two eyes?
90:9 And a tongue, and two lips?
90:10 And We showed him the two ways?
90:11 But he did not brave the ascent.
90:12 And what will explain to you what the ascent is?
90:13 The freeing of a slave.
90:14 Or the feeding on a day of hunger.
90:15 An orphan near of kin.
90:16 Or a destitute in the dust.
90:17 Then he becomes of those who believe, and advise one another to patience, and advise one another to kindness.
90:18 These are the people of happiness.
90:19 But as for those who defy Our revelations—these are the people of misery.
90:20 Upon them is a padlocked Fire.
