The Town (Al-Balad)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after Q (Qaaf) before The Comet (Al-Taareq)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ NAY! I call to witness this land (1) and you are dwelling in this city -- (2) and by parent and offspring, (3) Assuredly We have created man in trouble. (4) Does he think that no one has power over him? (5) He says (boastfully): "I have wasted wealth in abundance!" (6) Does he then think that no one sees him? (7) Did We not make two eyes for him? (8) a tongue, and two lips, (9) And shown him the two ways (good and evil)? (10) Yet, he has not entered into Aqaba (11) and what shall teach thee what is the steep? (12) The freeing of a slave! (13) or the feeding, upon a day of [one's own] hunger, (14) To an orphan near of kin. (15) Or to the poor man lying in the dust. (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 the Companions of the Right Hand. (18) And those who disbelieve Our signs - they are the fellows of the lefthand. (19) and the Fire will close in on them. (20)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
