The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) And thou art an indweller of this city - (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) That We created man in toil and trouble. (4) Does man think that no one will ever have power over him? (5) (He boasts and shows off) saying, "I have spent a great deal of money (for the cause of God)". (6) Does he think that no one has seen him? (7) Have We not appointed to him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) And showed him two highways (of good and evil)? (10) Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba (11) And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?- (12) To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery), (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) Those are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) And those who denied Our signs, are the people of the left. (19) The Fire will be shut over them (i.e. they will be enveloped by the Fire without any opening or window or outlet. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
