The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ I swear by this city, Makkah - (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (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 boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not assign unto him two eyes (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) and guided him on the two paths (of good and evil)? (10) But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep. (11) Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Ascent is! - (12) (It is:) freeing the bondman; (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) To the orphan with claims of relationship, (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. (17) These are the People of the Right Hand. (18) But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left. (19) Over them shall be Fire closing round. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
