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 Dispenser of Grace
۞ I swear by yonder 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 created the human in fatigue. (4) Does man think that no one will ever have power over him? (5) And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth: (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not give him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) Yet he has not scaled the height. (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) to an orphan near of kin; (15) or of a needy [stranger] lying in the dust (16) and, then besides this, he be one of those who believed, and enjoined upon one another steadfastness and enjoined upon one another compassion. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) But those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they are those on the Left Hand (the dwellers of Hell). (19) [with] fire closing in upon them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
