The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ I swear by this city (Mecca) (1) And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city - (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) Verily, We have created man into [a life of] pain, toil and trial. (4) Thinks he that none can overcome him? (5) He saith: I have wasted riches plenteous. (6) What, does he think none has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) But he could not scale the steep ascent. (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) (It is:) freeing the bondman; (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) To the orphan with claims of relationship, (15) Or some poor wretch 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) These are the fellows of the righthand. (18) And (as for) those who disbelieve in our communications, they are the people of the left hand. (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
