The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Nay! I swear by this city. (1) this city wherein you have been rendered violable– (2) and I swear by the parent and his offspring: (3) We verily have created man in an atmosphere: (4) Does he, then, think that no one has power over him? (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not appointed to him two eyes, (8) and a tongue and two lips? (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep. (11) And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?- (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) Of a related orphan, (15) Or some poor wretch in misery, (16) the believers who cooperate with others in patience (steadfastness) and kindness. (17) Such are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) As for those who disbelieve in Our revelations, they are the people of the left (19) The Fire will vault them over. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
