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
۞ No! I swear by this land, (1) And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) And the begetter and whom he begot. (3) That We created man in toil and trouble. (4) Thinketh he that none hath power over him? (5) (He boasts and shows off) saying, "I have spent a great deal of money (for the cause of God)". (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) But he would not attempt the uphill road, (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) The freeing of a slave, (13) Or, feeding, in a day of privation, (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (16) the believers who cooperate with others in patience (steadfastness) and kindness. (17) These are the people of the right. (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (19) who will be engulfed in the fire. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
