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, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city - (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) that We have created man into a life of toil and trial. (4) Does He think that no one will ever have control over him? (5) He says: "I have wasted a great deal of wealth." (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) and shown him the two highways [of good and evil]? (10) But he would not attempt the uphill road, (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) The freeing of a slave, (13) Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (14) of an orphan near of kin, (15) or to a destitute lying in 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) These are the people 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) On them is fire closed over. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
