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
There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall. (1) (a chastisement meant) for the unbelievers, one which none can avert; (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) (Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints. (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) but We see it is nigh. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) The mountains like the tufts of (carded) 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) his companion (wife), his brother, (12) And the family in which he was. (13) and whosoever is in the earth, all together, so that then it might deliver him. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) Dragging by the head, (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) Fretful when evil befalleth him (20) And when good touches him, withholding [of it], (21) Except those who establish prayer. (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) who, from their wealth is a known right (24) For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); (25) who confirm the Day of Doom (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord. (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) who guard their privates (29) Except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed, (30) But whoso seeketh more than that, those are they who are transgressors; (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;- (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
