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) And you are free (from sin, to punish the enemies of Islam on the Day of the conquest) in this city (Makkah). (2) And by the begetter and that which he begat, (3) That We created man in toil and trouble. (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 then think that no one sees him? (7) Have We not given him two eyes, (8) And a tongue and two lips? (9) and guided him on the two paths (of good and evil)? (10) But he did not venture to scale the difficult steep. (11) and what shall teach thee what is the steep? (12) [It is] the freeing of one's neck [from the burden of sin,] (13) or giving food upon a day of hunger (14) to an orphan near of kin (15) and downtrodden destitute person, (so that he would be of) (16) And to be of those who believe, and urge upon one another to persevere, and urge upon each other to be kind. (17) These are the people of the right hand. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round). (20)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
