The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I CALL THIS earth to witness -- 1 this land in which thou art free to dwell 2 and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: 3 We created the human in fatigue. 4 Does he think that never will anyone overcome him? 5 He says: "I have wasted a great deal of wealth." 6 Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? 7 Did We not make two eyes for him? 8 and a tongue, and a pair of lips, 9 And showed him two highways (of good and evil)? 10 But he hath not attempted the Ascent - 11 And what will make you know the path that is steep? 12 The freeing of a slave! 13 Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), 14 to an orphan near of kin; 15 or to a destitute lying in dust; 16 and being, withal, of those who have attained to faith, and who enjoin upon one another patience in adversity, and enjoin upon one another compassion. 17 They are those on the Right Hand (the dwellers of Paradise), 18 And (as for) those who disbelieve in our communications, they are the people of the left hand. 19 Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. 20
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
