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 CALL THIS earth to witness -- 1 And thou shalt be allowed in yonder city 2 And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], 3 that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship. 4 Thinks he that none can overcome him? 5 And he saith: I have destroyed vast wealth: 6 Thinks he that none sees him? 7 Did We not grant him two eyes, 8 And a tongue and two lips? 9 and shown him the two highways [of good and evil]? 10 Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba 11 Would that you knew what Aqaba is! 12 The freeing of a slave, 13 or, in a day of famine, the feeding of 14 An orphan, of kin, 15 Or the poor in distress; 16 Then he became one of those who believed, and recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also) recommended one another to pity and compassion. 17 Those who do so 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
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
