The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ Nay, I swear by this city - (1) and you are a lodger in this country. (2) And the begetter and that which he begat, (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He saith: I have wasted riches plenteous. (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not give him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) So he did not quickly enter the steep valley. (11) Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Ascent is! - (12) To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery), (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) Of a related orphan, (15) or to a 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) These are the people of the right hand. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) over them is a Fire covered down. (20)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
