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 requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) those who deny the truth. [Know, then, that] nothing can ward it off, (2) From God, the Lord of the steps (of progression), (3) The angels and Jibreel, ascend towards Him the punishment will befall on a day which spans fifty thousand years. (4) (Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints. (5) they see it as being far off; (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like unto dregs of oil. (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend (10) although they shall be within sight of one another. The guilty one would fain ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his children, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) and of all the kinsfolk who ever 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) Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!- (16) It will summon whoever turns his back and flees, (17) And masseth and then hoardeth. (18) ۞ Verily man is impatient by nature: (19) When evil comes upon him he is impatient; (20) when good visits him, grudging, (21) Except those who closely follow (the Book of God), (22) Those who are constant at their prayer (23) those in whose wealth is a right known (24) for the needy and the deprived, (25) And those who testify to the Day of Requital. (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord, -- (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) and guard their private parts (29) save from their wives and what their right hands own, then not being blameworthy (30) but any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) and (finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times; (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
