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 (Makkah); (1) And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) Verily We have created man into toil and struggle. (4) Thinketh he that none hath power over him? (5) He says (boastfully): "I have wasted wealth in abundance!" (6) Does man think that no one saw him? (7) Did We not assign unto him two eyes (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) and guided him on the two highways? (10) But he could not scale the steep ascent. (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) (It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.) (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) Of a related orphan, (15) Or to the indigent (down) in the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe and exhort one another to perseverance and exhort one another to pity. (17) They are the people of the right hand (and will succeed). (18) and [as for] those who are bent on denying the truth of Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand, (19) Upon them is a fire, in which they are imprisoned, closed and shut above them. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
