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 swear by this city (Mecca) (1) And you are free (from sin, to punish the enemies of Islam on the Day of the conquest) in this city (Makkah). (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does he think that no one can overpower him? (5) He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance! (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) And shown him the two highways? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) The freeing of a slave! (13) Or, feeding, in a day of privation, (14) Of a related orphan, (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) Then he became one of those who believed, and recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also) recommended one another to pity and compassion. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) On them is fire closed over. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
