The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ I swear by this city (Makkah); (1) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Deemest he that none will overpower him? (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep. (11) And what could make thee conceive what it is, that steep uphill road? (12) It is the setting free of a slave (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) an orphaned relative (15) Or to a Miskin (poor) afflicted with misery. (16) And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) But those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they are those on the Left Hand (the dwellers of Hell). (19) Upon them shall be a Fire that will hem them in. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
