The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ NAY! I call to witness this land (1) and you are a lodger in this country. (2) And by the begetter and that which he begat, (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4) Deemest he that none will overpower 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 sees him? (7) Did We not give him two eyes, (8) and a tongue, and a pair of lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) But he hath not attempted the Ascent - (11) And what shall make thee understand that which the steep is? (12) It is the freeing of a slave (13) or, in a day of famine, the feeding of (14) The orphan near in relationship, (15) Or a needy person in misery (16) and, then besides this, he be one of those who believed, and enjoined upon one another steadfastness and enjoined upon one another compassion. (17) Such are they that have attained to righteousness; (18) But those who disbelieve in Our verses, they are the Companions of the Left, (19) Upon them shall be a Fire that will hem them in. (20)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
