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
۞ I swear by this city (Makkah); (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does he think that never will anyone overcome him? (5) He shall say: I have wasted much wealth. (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not appointed to him two eyes, (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) And have shown him the two ways? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) (It is) to free a slave, (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) of an orphan near of kin, (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) These are the people of the right. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) Over them shall be Fire closing round. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
