The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befall (1) The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-- (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (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 think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away. (6) but We see it near. (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) And no friend inquires after friend (10) though they may be in one another's sight: [for,] everyone who was lost in sin will on that Day but desire to ransom himself from suffering at the price of his own children, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) And his kin that sheltered him. (13) And whoever is on earth entirely [so] then it could save him. (14) By no means! It will be the fierce flame (15) A remover of exteriors. (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) and amassed wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Verily man is formed impatient. (19) When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing. (20) and tight-fisted when good fortune visits him, (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) Those who are constant in their prayer (23) And those in whose wealth is a recognised right. (24) to those who ask [for help] and to the destitute; (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) and who stand in dread of their Sustainer's chastisement (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) and those who guard their private parts, (29) Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy (30) But those who seek more than this will be transgressors; (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) And those who are firm upon their testimonies. (33) And those who of their prayer are observant. (34) They will be honoured in the Gardens of Bliss. (35)
