The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city - (2) And the begetter and that which he begat, (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Deemest he that none will overpower him? (5) He saith: I have wasted riches plenteous. (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? (8) One tongue, and two lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) But he has not broken through the difficult pass. (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery), (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) or of a needy [stranger] lying in the dust (16) and, then besides this, he be one of those who believed, and enjoined upon one another steadfastness and enjoined upon one another compassion. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (19) over them is a Fire covered down. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
