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 -- (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance! (6) Does he think that none has observed him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) and shown him the two paths? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) Or, feeding, in a day of privation, (14) The orphan near in 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) These are the people of the right hand. (18) But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand. (19) Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
