The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Nay! I swear by this city. (1) in which you are now living (2) And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Does he, then, think that no one has power over him? (5) He will say: 'I have destroyed a vast wealth' (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) And a tongue, and a pair of lips?- (9) And did We not show him the two highroads (of good and evil)? (10) But he would not try to ascend the steep uphill road... (11) And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass? (12) The freeing of a slave, (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (16) and being, withal, of those who have attained to faith, and who enjoin upon one another patience in adversity, and enjoin upon one another compassion. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) But they who disbelieved in Our signs - those are the companions of the left. (19) Over them shall be Fire closing round. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
End of Surah: The Town (Al-Balad). Sent down in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
