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 swear by yonder city (1) And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does he think that never will anyone overcome him? (5) He saith: I have wasted riches plenteous. (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep. (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) It is the setting free of a slave (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) or a needy man 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) Those are the companions of the right. (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
