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 -- (1) this land in which thou art free to dwell (2) And by oath of your forefather Ibrahim, and by you his illustrious son! (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Thinketh he that none hath power over him? (5) He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.” (6) Does he think that none has observed him? (7) Did We not give him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips, (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) But he has not attempted the ascent. (11) And what will make you know the path that is steep? (12) It is the freeing of a slave; (13) Or to feed in times of famine (14) an orphaned relative (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) Such are the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) and [as for] those who are bent on denying the truth of Our revelations, they are the people of the left hand, (19) Fire will be an awning over them. (20)
Almighty God's Truth.
