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
۞ NAY! I call to witness this land (1) And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city (2) And by the begetter and that which he begat, (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Does he, then, think that no one has power over him? (5) He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance! (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not give him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) and shown him the two highways [of good and evil]? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) It is the freeing of a slave; (13) or the feeding, upon a day of [one's own] hunger, (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) then that he become of those who believe and counsel each other to be steadfast, and counsel each other to be merciful. (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) Over them will be fire closed in. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
