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 CALL THIS earth to witness -- (1) and you are a lodger in this country. (2) by the begetter, and that he begot, (3) Verily We have created man into toil and hardship. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He will say: 'I have destroyed a vast wealth' (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) And a tongue and a pair of lips? (9) And shown him the two highways? (10) Yet he has not assaulted the steep; (11) And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) Or the feeding on a day of hunger. (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. (17) Those who do so are the people of the right hand, (18) But those who disbelieve Our revelations, their place will be on the left hand. (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
