Juz 30
The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ I swear by this city (Mecca) (1) and you are a lodger in this country. (2) and I swear by the parent and his offspring: (3) We verily have created man in an atmosphere: (4) Does He think that no one will ever have control over him? (5) He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways? (10) Yet he has not scaled the height. (11) And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) or the feeding in times of famine (14) To an orphan, having relationship, (15) Or of a homeless needy person! (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 who do so are the people of the right hand, (18) But those who disbelieve Our revelations, their place will be on the left hand. (19) On them is fire closed over. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
