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 Most Merciful
۞ No, I swear by this country (Mecca), (1) And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) We verily have created man in an atmosphere: (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Does man think that no one saw him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And shown him the two highways? (10) So he did not quickly enter the steep valley. (11) And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?- (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) The orphan near in relationship, (15) Or the poor in distress; (16) And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another. (17) Those are the companions of the right. (18) But those who deny Our revelations are the people of the left hand: (19) and the Fire will close in on them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
