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 Compassionate
A questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall (1) The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,- (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (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) Verily they behold it afar off. (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) The Day that the sky will be like the boiling filth of oil, (or molten copper or silver or lead, etc.). (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) and no friend will ask about his friend, (10) Though within sight of one another. The sinner would like to ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his sons, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, all together, so that then it might deliver him. (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) A fire that melts the hide. (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) and amassed wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) If evil befalls him he is perturbed; (20) And when good touches him, withholding [of it], (21) Save worshippers. (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) and those in whose wealth there is a known right (24) For those who beg, and for the needy who cannot even ask. (25) And those who hold to the truth of the Day of Judgment; (26) and who stand in dread of their Sustainer's chastisement (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) save from their wives and what their right hands own, then not being blameworthy (30) So those who desire more than this it is they who are the transgressors. (31) And those who of their trusts and their covenant are keepers. (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) and are steadfast in their prayers. (34) all these shall live honourably in the Gardens. (35)
