The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by yonder city 1 in which you are now living 2 And by the giver of birth, and whom he fathered, 3 Verily, We have created man into [a life of] pain, toil and trial. 4 Deemest he that none will overpower him? 5 He says: “I have squandered enormous wealth.” 6 Does he believe that none has seen him? 7 Have We not made for him a pair of eyes? 8 One tongue, and two lips, 9 and guided him on the two highways? 10 But he would not attempt the uphill road, 11 and what shall teach thee what is the steep? 12 It is the freeing of a slave; 13 Or feeding on a day of severe hunger 14 to an orphan near of kin 15 Or to the poor man lying in the dust. 16 And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. 17 Those are the Companions of the Right. 18 But those who deny Our revelations are the people of the left hand: 19 and the Fire will close in on them. 20
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
