The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) by the begetter, and that he begot, (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does He think that no one will ever have control over him? (5) (He boasts and shows off) saying, "I have spent a great deal of money (for the cause of God)". (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Ascent is! - (12) (It is) the setting free of a slave, (13) Or the giving of food in a day of privation (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) Then he is of those who believe and charge one another to show patience, and charge one another to show compassion. (17) Those who do so are the people of the right hand, (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) with the Fire closed above them. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
