The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city (2) And by the begetter and that which he begat, (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He says, "I have spent enormous wealth." (6) Does he believe that none has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) a tongue, and two lips? (9) And have shown him the two ways? (10) But he would not try to ascend the steep uphill road... (11) What will explain to you what the ascent is? (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) or, in a day of famine, the feeding of (14) of an orphaned relative (15) and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of) (16) And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another. (17) Their place will be on the right hand. (18) And those who denied Our signs, are the people of the left. (19) Over them will be fire closed in. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
