Juz 30
The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ I swear by this city (Mecca) (1) in which you are now living (2) and [I call to witness] parent and offspring: (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Does he think then that no one has 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 appointed to him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and two lips, (9) And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways? (10) But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (11) Would that you knew what Aqaba is! (12) It is the setting free of a slave (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) to an orphan near of kin; (15) or to a needy person in distress; (16) Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) But those who disbelieve Our revelations, their place will be on the left hand. (19) On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round). (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
