The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city (2) by the begetter, and that he begot, (3) We created the human in fatigue. (4) Does he think that no one can overpower him? (5) And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth: (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) and shown him the two highways [of good and evil]? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) It is the freeing of a slave (13) Or to feed in times of famine (14) of an orphan near of kin, (15) and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of) (16) And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion. (17) Their place will be on the right hand. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) On them is fire closed over. (20)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
