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 Compassionate
۞ No, I swear by this country (Mecca), (1) And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city - (2) And the begetter and whom he begot. (3) that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship. (4) Deemest he that none will overpower him? (5) He says: "I have wasted a great deal of wealth." (6) Does he, then, think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) and shown him the two paths? (10) But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep. (11) What will explain to you what the ascent is? (12) (It is:) freeing the bondman; (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) An orphan, of kin, (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) But those who deny Our revelations are the people of the left hand: (19) Upon them shall be a Fire that will hem them in. (20)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
