The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ I do call to witness this City;- (1) and you are a lodger in this country. (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) that We have created man into a life of toil and trial. (4) Does he think that never will anyone overcome him? (5) He says, "I have spent wealth in abundance." (6) Does he think that none has observed him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) And showed him two highways (of good and evil)? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (11) and what shall teach thee what is the steep? (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) Or the giving of food in a day of hunger (14) An orphan, of kin, (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (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 are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left. (19) Over them shall be Fire closing round. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
