The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ I do call to witness this City;- (1) And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance! (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And have shown him the two ways? (10) Yet he has not scaled the height. (11) And what could make thee conceive what it is, that steep uphill road? (12) It is the freeing of a slave (13) or, in a day of famine, the feeding of (14) an orphaned relative (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 those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left Hand; (19) The Fire will be shut over them (i.e. they will be enveloped by the Fire without any opening or window or outlet. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
