البلد

Al-Balad - The City

90:1 Nay, I swear by this city -
90:2 And thou art an indweller of this city -
90:3 And the begetter and that which he begat,
90:4 We verily have created man in an atmosphere:
90:5 Thinketh he that none hath power over him?
90:6 And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth:
90:7 Thinketh he that none beholdeth him?
90:8 Did We not assign unto him two eyes
90:9 And a tongue and two lips,
90:10 And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways?
90:11 But he hath not attempted the Ascent -
90:12 Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Ascent is! -
90:13 (It is) to free a slave,
90:14 And to feed in the day of hunger.
90:15 An orphan near of kin,
90:16 Or some poor wretch in misery,
90:17 And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity.
90:18 Their place will be on the right hand.
90:19 But those who disbelieve Our revelations, their place will be on the left hand.
90:20 Fire will be an awning over them.
