Juz 30
The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city, Makkah - (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) Verily, We have created man in toil. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Does he think that no one has seen him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) And what could make thee conceive what it is, that steep uphill road? (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) of an orphaned relative (15) Or the poor in distress; (16) And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to 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) On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round). (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
