The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Nay! I swear by this city (1) this city wherein you have been rendered violable– (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) that We have created man into a life of toil and trial. (4) Does he, then, think that no one has power over him? (5) He says, "I have spent enormous wealth." (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Did We not assign unto him two eyes (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And have shown him the two ways? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (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 the feeding, upon a day of [one's own] hunger, (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) Those are the companions of the right. (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) Over them shall be Fire closing round. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
