The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ Nay, I swear by this city - (1) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) by the begetter, and that he begot, (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Does he think that no one can overpower him? (5) He shall say: I have wasted much wealth. (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Did We not assign unto him two eyes (8) a tongue, and two lips? (9) and guided him on the two paths (of good and evil)? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) (It is) the setting free of a slave, (13) Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) or to a needy person in distress; (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) These are the People of the Right Hand. (18) and [as for] those who are bent on denying the truth of Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand, (19) Over them will be fire closed in. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
