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 you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) And by the begetter (i.e. Adam) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny); (3) that We have created the human being to face a great deal of hardship. (4) Thinketh he that none hath power over him? (5) (He boasts and shows off) saying, "I have spent a great deal of money (for the cause of God)". (6) Does he think that no one has seen him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) And pointed out to him the two conspicuous ways? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) What will explain to you what the ascent is? (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) Or feeding on a day of severe hunger (14) An orphan near of kin, (15) or to a needy person in distress; (16) the believers who cooperate with others in patience (steadfastness) and kindness. (17) They are those on the Right Hand (the dwellers of Paradise), (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)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
