The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
ONE who is minded to ask might ask about the suffering which [in the hereafter] is bound to befall (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) a chastisement from Allah, the Lord of the ascending steps, (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit mount up, in a day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore patiently endure, in the best manner (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him). (5) They see it [the Day of Judgement] to be far off, (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) The day when the sky will be like molten silver. (8) and the mountains become like wool, (9) And no friend will ask after a friend, (10) as they are given sight of them. The sinner will wish that he might ransom himself from the chastisement of that day even by his sons, (11) And his wife and his brother, (12) the kinsmen who gave him shelter, (13) And all those who are in the earth then only if the redemption saves him! (14) But never. It is pure white flame (15) A remover of exteriors. (16) It shall call him who turneth back and backslideth. (17) And collected [wealth] and hoarded. (18) ۞ Indeed, mankind was created anxious: (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) save those that pray (22) Those who remain steadfast to their prayer; (23) those who give a due share of their wealth (24) for the beggar and the outcast, (25) And those who accept the truth of the judgment day (26) And those who fear the displeasure of their Lord,- (27) Verily! The torment of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure, (28) those who preserve their chastity (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) but those who go beyond that limit are transgressors; (31) (Those) who keep their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who are firm upon their testimonies. (33) And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;- (34) all these shall live honourably in the Gardens. (35)
