The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ No! I swear by this land, (1) in which you are now living (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) What, does he think none has power over him, (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) But he could not scale the steep ascent. (11) And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is? (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) And to feed in the day of hunger. (14) To the orphan with claims of relationship, (15) Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. (16) then that he become of those who believe and counsel each other to be steadfast, and counsel each other to be merciful. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (19) and the Fire will close in on them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
