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
One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befall (1) The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-- (2) No one can defend him against God, the Lord of the exalted positions. (3) On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him. (4) Therefore, [O believers] behave with seemly patience. (5) Indeed, they see it [as] distant, (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) The day the sky becomes like molten brass, (8) and the mountains will become like dyed tufts of wool, (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his 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 companion (wife), his brother, (12) his kin who sheltered him, (13) And all those who are on the earth, to save himself. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) It calls out to him who reverted and turned away. (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ VERILY, man is born with a restless disposition. (19) Being greatly grieved when evil afflicts him (20) but when they are fortunate, they become niggardly (21) Except those who closely follow (the Book of God), (22) Who are constant at their worship (23) And those in whose riches is a known right. (24) For the needy and those dispossessed, (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom - (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) And those who protect their private organs (from adultery). (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 any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) who honor their trust and promises, (32) and those who stand by their testimony (33) and (finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times; (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
