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 Beneficent, the Merciful
A requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) those who deny the truth. [Know, then, that] nothing can ward it off, (2) (A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent. (3) (Whereby) the angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day whereof the span is fifty thousand years. (4) So persevere with becoming patience. (5) behold, they see it as if far off; (6) Whereas We see it impending. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the sky will become like molten brass, (8) and the mountains will become like dyed tufts of wool, (9) and no friend will ask about his friend, (10) Though they shall be made to see one another. Fain would the guilty ransom himself from the torment of that Day by his children. (11) And his wife and his brother (12) And his kin that harboured him (13) and of whoever [else] lives on earth, all of them - so that he could but save himself. (14) By no means! Verily it is a Flame. (15) Taking away (burning completely) the head skin! (16) It calleth him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it. (18) ۞ Indeed, man is born impatient: (19) Fretful when evil touches him; (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he selfishly withholds it [from others]. (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth is a recognised right. (24) For him who begs and for him who is denied (good) (25) those who firmly believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) And those who guard their chastity, (29) except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed, (30) whereas such as seek to go beyond that [limit] are truly transgressors; (31) And those who keep their trusts and covenants; (32) and standby their witnessing, (33) And those who protect their prayers. (34) such people will receive due honor in Paradise. (35)
