The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ I swear by this city (Makkah); (1) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) Verily, We have created man into [a life of] pain, toil and trial. (4) Does He think that no one will ever have control over him? (5) He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.” (6) Does he think that none has observed him? (7) Have We not appointed to him two eyes, (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) and shown him the two paths? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) It is freeing the neck, (13) Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) or to a destitute lying in dust; (16) And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another. (17) They are those on the Right Hand (the dwellers of Paradise), (18) But those who disbelieve in Our verses, they are the Companions of the Left, (19) over them is a Fire covered down. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
