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
۞ I do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) And thou art an indweller of this city - (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) Verily We have created man into toil and struggle. (4) Does he think that none has power over 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 showed him two highways (of good and evil)? (10) Yet he attempteth not the steep, (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) And to feed in the day of hunger. (14) an orphaned relative (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) then that he become of those who believe and counsel each other to be steadfast, and counsel each other to be merciful. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) But those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they are those on the Left Hand (the dwellers of Hell). (19) On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round). (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
