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 swear by this city (Mecca) (1) And thou art an indweller of this city - (2) And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], (3) We verily have created man in an atmosphere: (4) Thinks he that none can overcome him? (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And did We not guide him to the two elevated things? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) It is the freeing of a slave; (13) Or the giving of food in a day of hunger (14) an orphaned relative (15) or a needy man in misery; (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) Those who do so are the people of the right hand, (18) And those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left Hand; (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
