The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ No, I swear by this country (Mecca), (1) And you are free (from sin, to punish the enemies of Islam on the Day of the conquest) in this city (Makkah). (2) And by the giver of birth, and whom he fathered, (3) Verily We have created man into toil and hardship. (4) Does he think that none 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 made for him two eyes? (8) and a tongue, and two lips, (9) and guided him on the two paths (of good and evil)? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) and what shall teach thee what is the steep? (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (16) Then he became one of those who believed, and recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also) recommended one another to pity and compassion. (17) Those are the Companions of the Right. (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) The Fire will be shut over them (i.e. they will be enveloped by the Fire without any opening or window or outlet. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
