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 do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) And the parent and the offspring, (3) that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He shall say: I have wasted much wealth. (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And shown unto him the two highways? (10) Yet he has not assaulted the steep; (11) How will you comprehend what the Steep ascent is? -- (12) It is freeing the neck, (13) or the feeding, upon a day of [one's own] hunger, (14) An orphan, of kin, (15) Or a needy person 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) Those who do so are the people of the right hand, (18) But those who disbelieve in Our verses, they are the Companions of the Left, (19) Over them will be fire closed in. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
