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
۞ Nay! I swear by this city. (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) Verily We have created man into toil and hardship. (4) Does he, then, think that no one has power over him? (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?- (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And did We not show him the two highroads (of good and evil)? (10) But he would not try to ascend the steep uphill road... (11) And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (12) (It is:) freeing the bondman; (13) Or the giving of food in a day of privation (14) of an orphaned relative (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (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) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) On them is fire closed over. (20)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
