The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ I swear by this city (Mecca) (1) And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city - (2) And the begetter and whom he begot. (3) that We have created man into a life of toil and trial. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) And a tongue and a pair of lips? (9) And shown him the two highways? (10) But he would not try to ascend the steep uphill road... (11) How will you comprehend what the Steep ascent is? -- (12) (It is:) freeing the bondman; (13) Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) Or of a homeless needy person! (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) And those who denied Our signs, are the people of the left. (19) The Fire will vault them over. (20)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
