The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ NAY! I call to witness this land (1) And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Does he think then that no one has power over him? (5) He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.” (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And have shown him the two ways? (10) Yet he attempteth not the steep, (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) (It is) the freeing of a slave, (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) or a needy man in misery; (16) and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) The Fire will be shut over them (i.e. they will be enveloped by the Fire without any opening or window or outlet. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
