Surah List
Translation of the Holy Qur-an in English

90. Surat-ul-Balad (The City)

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.


1. I swear by this city,
2. and thou shalt be allowed in this city --
3. and by the begetter and what he begat,
4. assuredly We have created man in toil.
5. Does he think that none can overcome him?
6. He says: I have squandered abundant riches.
7. Does he suppose that no one has seen him?
8. Have We not made for him two eyes?
9. and a tongue and two lips,
10. and shown to him the two highways?
11. Yet he does not attempt the steep.
12. And what shall make thee understand what the steep is?
13. It is freeing the neck --
14. or, feeding in day of privation,
15. an orphan of kin,
16. or a poor man, cleaving to the dust.
17. Then he become one of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion.
18. These are the fellows of the right-hand.
19. And those who disbelieved in Our signs -- they are the fellows of the left-hand.
20. Over them shall be the Fire closing round.
