The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
A supplicant asked for a punishment bound to happen (1) which will inevitably seize the disbelievers. (2) (A punishment) from Allah, the Owner of the Elevated Passages. (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit mount up, in a day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore, [O believer,] endure all adversity with goodly patience: (5) they see it as being far off; (6) but We see it to be very near. (7) [It will take place] on a Day when the sky will be like molten lead, (8) And the hills will be light as wool. (9) And no friend inquires after friend (10) They will be shown each other. The criminal will wish that he could be ransomed from the punishment of that Day by his children (11) His wife and his brother, (12) And the family in which he was. (13) And all who are on the earth; so that this might deliver him. (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) A fire that melts the hide. (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) [As a rule,] whenever misfortune touches him, he is filled with self-pity; (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) Except those who pray, (22) Who are at their prayer constant. (23) They are those who assign a certain share of their property (24) For the needy and those dispossessed, (25) And those who hold to the truth of the Day of Judgment; (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord. (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors. (31) who honor their trust and promises, (32) And those who stand by their testimony (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
