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 yonder city (1) And you are free to live upon it, -- (2) And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;- (3) We have indeed created man surrounded by hardships. (4) Thinketh he, that none hath power over him? (5) He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance! (6) Thinks he that none sees him? (7) Did We not grant 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) How will you comprehend what the Steep ascent is? -- (12) It is the freeing of a slave (13) the giving of food upon the day of hunger (14) An orphan of near relationship (15) and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of) (16) And moreover to be of those who accepted faith, and who urged patience to one another and who urged graciousness to one another. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) As for those who rejected Our Signs, they are the People of the Left Hand. (19) who will be engulfed in the fire. (20)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
