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 do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) this city wherein you have been rendered violable– (2) and I swear by the parent and his offspring: (3) Verily, We have created man into [a life of] pain, toil and trial. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.” (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?- (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) and shown him the two highways [of good and evil]? (10) But he would not try to ascend the steep uphill road... (11) And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is? (12) The freeing of a slave! (13) Or the giving of food in a day of hunger (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) Or a needy person in misery (16) Then he is of those who believe and charge one another to show patience, and charge one another to show compassion. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (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.
