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
۞ Nay! I swear by this city. (1) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) and I swear by the parent and his offspring: (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Deemest he that none will overpower him? (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not grant him two eyes, (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And showed him two highways (of good and evil)? (10) Yet he has not assaulted the steep; (11) How will you comprehend what the Steep ascent is? -- (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) Or some poor wretch in misery, (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) As for those who disbelieve in Our revelations, they are the people of the left (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.
