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 questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) From Allah, Owner of the ascending steps. (3) The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years: (4) Therefore do thou hold Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment). (5) Indeed, they see it [as] distant, (6) but We see it to be very near. (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) and the mountains shall be like puffs 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 spouse and his brother (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship) (13) and all persons of the earth, if only he could thus save himself. (14) But no! There is a raging blaze (15) A fire that melts the hide. (16) It calls out to him who reverted and turned away. (17) And amasses (wealth) then shuts it up. (18) ۞ Surely man is created of a hasty temperament (19) When evil comes upon him he is impatient; (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) Save worshippers. (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged (24) to those who ask [for help] and to the destitute; (25) And those who hold to the truth of the Day of Judgment; (26) And those who fear the displeasure of their Lord,- (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) who guard their carnal desires (29) except from their wives and what their right hands own, for these they are not blameworthy. (30) (but whoso seeks after more than that, they are the transgressors), (31) and who preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) Those shall be in gardens, honored. (35)
