The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city -- (1) in which you are now living (2) And by the giver of birth, and whom he fathered, (3) We have indeed created man surrounded by hardships. (4) Does he think that none has power over him! (5) He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.” (6) Does he think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) And did We not guide him to the two elevated things? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) And what do you know what that difficult steep is? (12) To free a neck (from the burden of debt or slavery), (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) Of a related orphan, (15) Or a needy person in misery (16) Then he became one of those who believed, and recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also) recommended one another to pity and compassion. (17) These are the fellows of the righthand. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
