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 Most Merciful
A supplicant asked for a punishment bound to happen (1) The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,- (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (3) On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him. (4) So persevere with becoming patience. (5) They surely take it to be far away, (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) [It will take place] on a Day when the sky will be like molten lead, (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his 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) His wife and his brother, (12) and his kinsfolk who had stood by him, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him. (14) By no means! For the raging flames of the fire (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) and it will claim all those who turned their backs [on the true faith] and turned away [from the truth], (17) And accumulated wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Lo! man was created anxious, (19) When they are afflicted, they complain, (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he selfishly withholds it [from others]. (21) save those that pray (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) And those in whose wealth there is a known right, (24) For the beggar and the destitute; (25) And those who accept the truth of the judgment day (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord. (27) for, behold, of their Sustainer's chastisement none may ever feel [wholly] secure; (28) And those who guard their private parts, (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) whereas such as seek to go beyond that [limit] are truly transgressors; (31) And those who protect the property entrusted to them, and their agreements. (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) and who are constant in their prayers. (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
