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 call to witness this land (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) Verily, We have created man into [a life of] pain, toil and trial. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Does man think that no one saw him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) and shown him the two paths? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) or, in a day of famine, the feeding of (14) an orphaned relative (15) Or some poor wretch in misery, (16) And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another. (17) Those are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) The Fire will vault them over. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
