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 this city (Mecca) (1) For you (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) are in this city. (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth: (6) Does he think that no one has seen him? (7) Did We not grant him two eyes, (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) So he did not quickly enter the steep valley. (11) What could let you know what the height is! (12) (It is) the freeing of a slave, (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) Or to a Miskin (poor) afflicted with misery. (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) Their place will be on the right hand. (18) But those who disbelieve Our revelations, their place will be on the left hand. (19) On them is fire closed over. (20)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
