The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city (Mecca) (1) And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city (2) And the begetter and whom he begot. (3) We created the human in fatigue. (4) Does he think that none has power over him! (5) And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth: (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) and guided him on the two highways? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) (It is) the freeing of a slave, (13) the giving of food upon the day of hunger (14) an orphaned relative (15) Or to a Miskin (poor) afflicted with misery. (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
