The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) For you (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) are in this city. (2) And the parent and the offspring, (3) Verily We have created man into toil and struggle. (4) Does he think that never will anyone overcome him? (5) He shall say: I have wasted much wealth. (6) What, does he think none has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) So he did not quickly enter the steep valley. (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) The freeing of a slave, (13) the giving of food upon the day of hunger (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) Those are the Companions of the Right. (18) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) The Fire will be shut over them (i.e. they will be enveloped by the Fire without any opening or window or outlet. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
