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 you are a lodger in this country. (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) Verily We have created man into toil and struggle. (4) Does he think then that no one has power over him? (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And did We not show him the two highroads (of good and evil)? (10) Yet he attempteth not the steep, (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery), (13) or the feeding, upon a day of [one's own] hunger, (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. (17) Such are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
