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 questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) all the angels and all the inspiration [ever granted to man] ascend unto Him [daily,] in a day the length whereof is [like] fifty thousand years… (4) So be thou patient with a sweet patience; (5) behold, they see it as if far off; (6) but We see it is nigh. (7) On the day when the heavens become like molten metal. (8) And then the mountains shall become like unto wool dyed. (9) No loyal friend will ask another loyal friend (10) Though they shall be made to see one another. Fain would the guilty ransom himself from the torment of that Day by his children. (11) And his wife and his brother, (12) and of all the kinsfolk who ever sheltered him, (13) and all the people of the earth, if that could deliver him. (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) will strip-off the flesh (16) Calling: "[O Kafir (O disbeliever in Allah, His angels, His Book, His Messengers, Day of Resurrection and in Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments), O Mushrik (O polytheist, disbeliever in the Oneness of Allah)] (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from Faith) [picking and swallowing them up from that great gathering of mankind (on the Day of Resurrection) just as a bird picks up a food-grain from the earth with its beak and swallows it up] [Tafsir Al-Qurtubi, Vol. 18, Page 289] (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from spending it in the Cause of Allah). (18) ۞ Indeed, the human was created grudging and impatient. (19) Being greatly grieved when evil afflicts him (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he grows niggardly. (21) But not so the worshippers (22) Who are constant at their worship (23) And those in whose wealth there is a known right, (24) For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); (25) And those who hold to the truth of the Day of Judgment; (26) and go in fear of the punishment of their Lord, (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts from illegal sexual acts). (29) Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed - (30) But he who seeks to go beyond this, these it is that go beyond the limits-- (31) and who preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who [carefully] maintain their prayer: (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
