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 do call to witness this City;- (1) and thou art a lodger in this land; (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Does he think that none has power over him! (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Does he believe that none has seen him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) And did We not guide him to the two elevated things? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is? (12) The freeing of a slave! (13) Or the feeding on a day of hunger. (14) To the orphan with claims of 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 they that have attained to righteousness; (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) On them is fire closed over. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
