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
۞ Nay, I swear by this city - 1 in which you are now living 2 by the begetter, and that he begot, 3 We created the human in fatigue. 4 Thinks he that none can overcome him? 5 He shall say: I have wasted much wealth. 6 Thinks he that none sees him? 7 Did We not grant him two eyes, 8 One tongue, and two lips, 9 And shown unto him the two highways? 10 But he would not attempt the uphill road, 11 And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?- 12 (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) 13 the giving of food upon the day of hunger 14 of an orphan near of kin, 15 Or to the poor man lying in the dust. 16 and being, withal, of those who have attained to faith, and who enjoin upon one another patience in adversity, and enjoin upon one another compassion. 17 They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). 18 And those who denied Our signs, are the people of the left. 19 Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. 20
True are the words of God the Almighty.
