The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ I do not (need to) swear by this town (Mecca) (1) And you shall be made free from obligation in this city-- (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) Certainly We have created man to be in distress. (4) Does man think that no one will ever have power over him? (5) He says, “I destroyed vast wealth.” (6) Deemest he that none beholdeth 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 would not attempt the uphill road, (11) What will explain to you what the ascent is? (12) (It is) the setting free of a slave, (13) Or to feed in times of famine (14) The orphan near in relationship, (15) Or a poor man cleaving to the dust. (16) Then he became of those who believed and enjoined on each other steadfastness and enjoined on each other compassion. (17) They are those on the Right Hand (the dwellers of Paradise), (18) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) over them is a Fire covered down. (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
End of Surah: The Town (Al-Balad). Sent down in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
