90: Al-Balad (البلد)

Audio Surah: AL-BALAD

1:  Nay! I swear by this city.

2:  And you shall be made free from obligation in this city--

3:  And the begetter and whom he begot.

4:  Certainly We have created man to be in distress.

5:  Does he think that no one has power over him?

6:  He shall say: I have wasted much wealth.

7:  Does he think that no one sees him?

8:  Have We not given him two eyes,

9:  And a tongue and two lips,

10:  And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways?

11:  But he would not attempt the uphill road,

12:  And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is?

13:  (It is) the setting free of a slave,

14:  Or the giving of food in a day of hunger

15:  To an orphan, having relationship,

16:  Or to the poor man lying in the dust.

17:  Then he is of those who believe and charge one another to show patience, and charge one another to show compassion.

18:  These are the people of the right hand.

19:  And (as for) those who disbelieve in our communications, they are the people of the left hand.

20:  On them is fire closed over.
