The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ Nay, I swear by this city - (1) and thou art a lodger in this land; (2) And the begetter and whom he begot. (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) and shown him the two highways [of good and evil]? (10) Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba (11) What could let you know what the height is! (12) The freeing of a slave! (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. (16) Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) And (as for) those who disbelieve in our communications, they are the people of the left hand. (19) [with] fire closing in upon them. (20)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
