The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ I do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (3) indeed, We created man in trouble. (4) Does he think that no one can overpower him? (5) He says (boastfully): "I have wasted wealth in abundance!" (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not assign unto him two eyes (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) Have We not shown him the ways of good and evil? (10) Yet he has not assaulted the steep; (11) And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (12) It is the freeing of a slave (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) An orphan, of kin, (15) or some needy person in distress, (16) then that he become of those who believe and counsel each other to be steadfast, and counsel each other to be merciful. (17) These are the people of the right. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) with the Fire closed above them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
