The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ Nay! I swear by this city (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Does he think that never will anyone overcome him? (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Did We not make two eyes for him? (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) And shown him the two highways? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (11) What could let you know what the height is! (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) Of a related orphan, (15) and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of) (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) These are the people of the right. (18) As for those who disbelieve in Our revelations, they are the people of the left (19) On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round). (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
