The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city, Makkah - (1) And thou art a freeman of this City;- (2) And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], (3) that We have created man into a life of toil and trial. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance! (6) What, does he think none has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) What could let you know what the height is! (12) (It is) the setting free of a slave, (13) the giving of food upon the day of hunger (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. (17) Such are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left. (19) Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
