The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ I do call to witness this City;- (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) That We created man in toil and trouble. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He says, "I have spent enormous wealth." (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not assign unto him two eyes (8) a tongue, and two lips? (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) But he has not attempted the ascent. (11) Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Ascent is! - (12) The freeing of a slave! (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) to an orphaned relative (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) then that he become of those who believe and counsel each other to be steadfast, and counsel each other to be merciful. (17) Their place will be on the right hand. (18) And those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left Hand; (19) Upon them shall be a Fire that will hem them in. (20)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
