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 Most Merciful
۞ I swear by yonder city (1) And thou art a freeman of this City;- (2) and by parent and offspring, (3) that We have created man into a life of toil and trial. (4) Deemest he that none will overpower him? (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Does he think that no one has seen him? (7) Have We not appointed to him two eyes, (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And did We not guide him to the two elevated things? (10) Yet he attempteth not the steep, (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) It is the setting free of a slave (13) or, in a day of famine, the feeding of (14) of an orphan near of kin, (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) Then he became one of those who believed, and recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also) recommended one another to pity and compassion. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) But those who deny Our revelations are the people of the left hand: (19) with the Fire closed above them. (20)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
