Allaah Almighty take the Oath on the City of Makaah-Surah Balad-Holy Quraan

Allaah Almighty

says in the Holy Quraan

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

لَا أُقْسِمُ بِهَـٰذَا الْبَلَدِ


I take an Oath by this city of Makaah,


[Although I am independent and have no need to swear an Oath].


وَأَنتَ حِلٌّ بِهَـٰذَا الْبَلَدِ

Because you [Muhammad] are an inhabitant of this city.  

3. And I cite the father [Hazrat] Abraham/Ibraheem and the son Ishmael/Ismaaeel as a witness.

 وَوَالِدٍ وَمَا وَلَدَ

I swear by this city not because the Kaabah, Hateem, Hajr e Aswad, and the Safaa Marwa are here. But because ‘O Beloved your blessed feet touch the soil of the city”
