Chapter 90:
Al-Balad — The City:

Revealed at Makkah: 20 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


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

90:1 Nay, I call to witness this City!

90:2 And thou wilt be made free from obligation in this City —

90:3 And the begetter and he whom he begot!

90:4 We have certainly created man to face difficulties.

90:5 Does he think that no one has power over him?

90:6 He will say: I have wasted much wealth.

90:7 Does he think that no one sees him?

90:8 Have We not given him two eyes,

90:9 And a tongue and two lips,

90:10 And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways?

90:11 But he attempts not the uphill road;

90:12 And what will make thee comprehend what the uphill road is?

90:13 (It is) to free a slave,

90:14 Or to feed in a day of hunger

90:15 An orphan nearly related,

90:16 Or the poor man lying in the dust.

90:17 Then he is of those who believe and exhort one another to patience, and exhort one another to mercy.

90:18 These are the people of the right hand.

90:19 And those who disbelieve in Our messages, they are the people of the left hand.

90:20 On them is Fire closed over.
