The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city - (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) That We created man in toil and trouble. (4) What, does he think none has power over him, (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Does he, then, think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) And shown unto him the two highways? (10) But he would not attempt the uphill road, (11) and what shall teach thee what is the steep? (12) It is the setting free of a slave (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) or of a needy [stranger] lying in the dust (16) the believers who cooperate with others in patience (steadfastness) and kindness. (17) Those are the Companions of the Right. (18) But those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they are those on the Left Hand (the dwellers of Hell). (19) Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
