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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
A questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall (1) Upon the disbelievers the punishment that none can avert. (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (3) by which the angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in one Day the duration of which is fifty thousand years. (4) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) Verily they behold it afar off. (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) The mountains like the tufts of (carded) wool, (9) And no friend will ask of a 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 his wife and his brother (12) And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) And whoever is on earth entirely [so] then it could save him. (14) But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hell (15) snatching away the scalp, (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ Human beings are created greedy. (19) when misfortune touches him he starts lamenting, (20) And when good touches him, withholding [of it], (21) Save worshippers. (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) And those in whose wealth exists a recognised right, (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) who confirm the Day of Reckoning (26) and are fearful of the punishment of their Lord; (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) and guard their private parts (29) Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed - (30) But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors;- (31) and who preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
