Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The City, This Countryside(al-Balad)
90:1 I swear by this city —
90:2 and you are resident in this city —
90:3 and by a father and what he fathered,
90:4 We created man in trouble.
90:5 Does he imagine that no one has power over him?
90:6 He says, ´I have consumed vast quantities of wealth.´
90:7 Does he imagine that no one has seen him?
90:8 Have We not given him two eyes,
90:9 and a tongue and two lips
90:10 and shown him the two highways?
90:11 But he has not braved the steep ascent.
90:12 What will convey to you what the steep ascent is?
90:13 It is freeing a slave
90:14 or feeding on a day of hunger
90:15 an orphaned relative
90:16 or a poor man in the dust;
90:17 then to be one of those who have iman and urge each other to steadfastness and urge each other to compassion.
90:18 Those are the Companions of the Right.
90:19 Those who reject Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left.
90:20 Above them is a sealed vault of Fire.
