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 questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can repel, (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (3) by which the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him in one Day which will last for fifty thousand years. (4) (Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints. (5) Surely they think it to be far off, (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) The mountains like the tufts of (carded) wool, (9) no loyal friend shall question loyal 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 of his spouse, and of his brother, (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all, all that is on earth,- so it could deliver him: (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) stripping away his skin, (16) It will claim all such as turn their backs [on what is right,] and turn away [from the truth,] (17) and amassed wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Truly man was created very impatient;- (19) When evil comes upon him he is impatient; (20) but when good comes upon him, he is grudging (21) Not so are the prayerful. (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) those who give a due share of their wealth (24) for the beggar and the outcast, (25) And those who believe in the Day of Recompense (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) surely the chastisement of their Lord is a thing none can feel secure from (28) who guard their privates (29) except from their wives and what their right hands own, for these they are not blameworthy. (30) but any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) and those who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges; (32) and standby their witnessing, (33) And those who are attentive at their worship. (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
