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
A doubter once demanded that punishment be immediately meted out, (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of Ascent. (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore endure with a goodly patience. (5) Verily! They see it (the torment) afar off, (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) On the day when the heavens become like molten metal. (8) And the mountains will be like 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 whoever is on earth entirely [so] then it could save him. (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) will strip-off the flesh (16) It shall insistently summon him who turned his back and retreated, (17) And collected [wealth] and hoarded. (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) If evil befalls him he is perturbed; (20) when good visits him, grudging, (21) except those that pray, (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth is a recognised right. (24) for the needy and the deprived, (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom - (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) who guard their privates (29) Except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess-- for these surely are not to be blamed, (30) And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers (31) And those who keep their trusts and covenants; (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who keep a guard on their prayer, (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
