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 do call to witness this City;- (1) and you are a lodger in this country. (2) And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?- (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) and guided him on the two paths (of good and evil)? (10) But he would not attempt the uphill road, (11) How will you comprehend what the Steep ascent is? -- (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) Or the feeding on a day of hunger. (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) Or a needy person in misery (16) And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. (17) They are those on the Right Hand (the dwellers of Paradise), (18) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
