  • 90. THE CITY
    THIS COUNTRYSIDE

    Revealed before the Hijrah. This chapter has 20 verses.


    In the name of God,
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    90:1 I do call to witness this City;-
    90:2 And thou art a freeman of this City;-
    90:3 And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;-
    90:4 Verily We have created man into toil and struggle.
    90:5 Thinketh he, that none hath power over him?
    90:6 He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance!
    90:7 Thinketh he that none beholdeth him?
    90:8 Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?-
    90:9 And a tongue, and a pair of lips?-
    90:10 And shown him the two highways?
    90:11 But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep.
    90:12 And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?-
    90:13 (It is:) freeing the bondman;
    90:14 Or the giving of food in a day of privation
    90:15 To the orphan with claims of relationship,
    90:16 Or to the indigent (down) in the dust.
    90:17 Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion.
    90:18 Such are the Companions of the Right Hand.
    90:19 But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand.
    90:20 On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round).
