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
Someone has (needlessly) demanded to experience the torment (of God), (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (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 be patient with gracious patience. (5) They deem it to be remote. (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) On the Day the sky will be like murky oil, (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) And no friend will ask after a friend, (10) They will be seeing them; the guilty will wish if only he could redeem himself from the punishment of that day, by offering his sons. (11) And his wife and his brother (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, all together, so that then it might deliver him. (14) By no means! It will be the fierce flame (15) tearing away his skin! (16) Inviting (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from the Right). (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) And refraining, when good reaches him. (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) Those who are constant in their prayer (23) And those in whose riches is a known right. (24) for such as ask [for help] and such as are deprived [of what is good in life]; (25) And those who believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) And those who fear the displeasure 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 with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed, (30) So those who desire more than this it is they who are the transgressors. (31) And those who respect their trusts and covenants; (32) And those who stand by their testimony (33) and are steadfast in their prayers. (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
