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, Makkah - (1) and thou art a lodger in this land; (2) or by the great father and his wonderful son (Abraham and Ishmael) (3) Verily We have created man into toil and hardship. (4) Does he think then that no one has power over him? (5) He says, "I have spent wealth in abundance." (6) Does he believe that none has seen him? (7) Have We not made for him two eyes (8) a tongue, and two lips? (9) and shown him the two paths? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) And what have you understood, what the valley is! (12) It is freeing the neck, (13) Or, feeding, in a day of privation, (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. (17) These are the fellows of the righthand. (18) whereas those who are bent on denying the truth of Our messages - they are such as have lost themselves in evil, (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
