The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ I swear by this city, Makkah - (1) and thou art a lodger in this land; (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Does he think that no one can overpower him? (5) He saith: I have wasted riches plenteous. (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) (It is) to free a slave, (13) Or the giving of food in a day of privation (14) of an orphaned relative (15) or a needy man in misery; (16) Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. (17) These are the People of the Right Hand. (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (19) Over them will be fire closed in. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
