The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ I do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Does he think that none has power over him! (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) a tongue, and two lips? (9) and guided him on the two highways? (10) Yet he has not assaulted the steep; (11) And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) Or the giving of food in a day of privation (14) To an orphan, having relationship, (15) or to a needy person in distress; (16) Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) Upon them shall be a Fire that will hem them in. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
