The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ I swear by yonder city (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 [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship. (4) Does man think that no one will ever have power over him? (5) He says: "I have wasted a great deal of wealth." (6) What, does he think none has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) and a tongue and two lips? (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) The orphan near in relationship, (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. (17) Such are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) And those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left Hand; (19) Over them will be fire closed in. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
