The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ I do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) by the begetter, and that he begot, (3) We verily have created man in an atmosphere: (4) Does he think that no one can overpower him? (5) He saith: I have wasted riches plenteous. (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) But he would not try to ascend the steep uphill road... (11) And what have you understood, what the valley is! (12) To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery), (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) To an orphan, having relationship, (15) or of a needy [stranger] lying in the dust (16) And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) But those who deny Our revelations are the people of the left hand: (19) who will be engulfed in the fire. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
