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 Most Merciful
۞ No! I swear by this land, (1) in which you are now living (2) And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], (3) indeed, We created man in trouble. (4) Does he, then, think that no one has power over him? (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not make two eyes for him? (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) and guided him on the two highways? (10) But he could not scale the steep ascent. (11) and what shall teach thee what is the steep? (12) (It is) the freeing of a slave, (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) Or of a homeless needy person! (16) and, then besides this, he be one of those who believed, and enjoined upon one another steadfastness and enjoined upon one another compassion. (17) These are the people of the right. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) with the Fire closed above them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
