The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ I swear by this city, Makkah - (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) And by the giver of birth, and whom he fathered, (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) What, does he think none has power over him, (5) He boasts, "I have spent wealth abundant!" (6) Thinketh he that none beholdeth him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And shown unto him the two highways? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) It is the freeing of a slave; (13) or giving food on a day of hunger (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) Those are the companions of the right. (18) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) [with] fire closing in upon them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
