The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
A supplicant asked for a punishment bound to happen (1) to those who deny the truth. No power can hinder God (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) So be patient (O Muhammad SAW), with a good patience. (5) They see the (Day) indeed as a far-off (event): (6) but We see it to be very near. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) and the mountains will become like dyed tufts of wool, (9) And not a friend shall ask a friend, (10) Though they will be put in sight of each other,- the sinner's desire will be: Would that he could redeem himself from the Penalty of that Day by (sacrificing) his children, (11) His wife and his brother, (12) His kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all those that are in the earth, (wishing) then (that) this might deliver him. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) Dragging by the head, (16) It shall insistently summon him who turned his back and retreated, (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) And niggardly when good touches him; (21) Not so are the prayerful. (22) and continue at their prayers, (23) and in whose possessions there is a due share, acknowledged [by them,] (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 torment (27) Verily! The torment of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure, (28) who guard their carnal desires (29) Except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess-- for these surely are not to be blamed, (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors. (31) And those who protect the property entrusted to them, and their agreements. (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) And those who keep a guard on their prayer, (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
