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 (Mecca) (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) by the begetter, and that he begot, (3) indeed, We created man in trouble. (4) Does he think that no one has power over 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) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) Yet he has not assaulted the steep; (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) It is freeing someone's neck from slavery; (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) or a needy man in misery; (16) and to be one of those who believe and urge one another to steadfastness and compassion. (17) Such are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) As for those who disbelieve in Our revelations, they are the people of the left (19) over them is a Fire covered down. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
