The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by yonder city (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) And the parent and the offspring, (3) Verily We have created man into toil and hardship. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) saying, 'I have consumed wealth abundant'? (6) Does he think that no one has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways? (10) Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) or, in a day of famine, the feeding of (14) The orphan near in relationship, (15) Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) But those who disbelieve in Our verses, they are the Companions of the Left, (19) and the Fire will close in on them. (20)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
