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) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) We verily have created man in an atmosphere: (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (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 did We not show him the two highroads (of good and evil)? (10) But he has not attempted the ascent. (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) so that he becomes one of those who believe, charge each other to be patient, and charge each other to be merciful. (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)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
