The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city (Mecca) (1) in which you are now living (2) And the begetter and whom he begot. (3) Verily We have created man into toil and struggle. (4) What, does he think none has power over him, (5) (He boasts and shows off) saying, "I have spent a great deal of money (for the cause of God)". (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) (It is) the setting free of a slave, (13) Or the feeding on a day of hunger. (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) Or the poor in distress; (16) so that he becomes one of those who believe, charge each other to be patient, and charge each other to be merciful. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) And those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the Companions of the Left Hand; (19) and the Fire will close in on them. (20)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
