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 Dispenser of Grace
۞ I CALL THIS earth to witness -- (1) this city wherein you have been rendered violable– (2) And by the begetter and that which he begat, (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Does man think that no one will ever have power over him? (5) He shall say: I have wasted much wealth. (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes? (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) and guided him on the two highways? (10) So he did not quickly enter the steep valley. (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) It is the freeing of a slave; (13) Or the feeding on a day of hunger. (14) To the orphan with claims of relationship, (15) or of a needy [stranger] lying in the dust (16) And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion. (17) Those who do so are the people of the right hand, (18) But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left. (19) [with] fire closing in upon them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
End of Surah: The Town (Al-Balad). Sent down in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
