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 do call to witness this City;- (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) And by the giver of birth, and whom he fathered, (3) that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship. (4) Does he think then that no one has 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 then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and a pair of lips? (9) and guided him on the two highways? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) And what have you understood, what the valley is! (12) (It is) to free a slave, (13) Or the giving of food in a day of hunger (14) An orphan, of kin, (15) or to a destitute lying in dust; (16) and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
