The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Nay, I swear by this city - (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) Verily We have created man into toil and hardship. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He says: "I have wasted a great deal of wealth." (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And shown unto him the two highways? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (11) And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is? (12) It is the setting free of a slave (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of) (16) so that he becomes one of those who believe, charge each other to be patient, and charge each other to be merciful. (17) Their place will be on the right hand. (18) As for those who disbelieve in Our revelations, they are the people of the left (19) with the Fire closed above them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
