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 benevolent, ever-merciful
A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall- (1) Upon the infidels -- which none would be able to repel -- (2) [since it will come] from God, unto whom there are many ways of ascent: (3) To whom the angels and the soul take a day to ascend, whose length is fifty thousand years. (4) Wherefore be thou patient with a becoming patience. (5) behold, men look upon that [reckoning] as something far away (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) The Day that the sky will be like molten brass, (8) and the mountains shall be as plucked wool-tufts, (9) and no bosom friend will enquire about any of his bosom friends (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 spouse and his brother (12) and of all the kinsfolk who ever sheltered him, (13) And all that are in the earth, so that it might save him. (14) No! Indeed, it is the Flame [of Hell], (15) It snatches away by the scalps, (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And masseth and then hoardeth. (18) ۞ Verily man is impatient by nature: (19) When evil touches him, impatient, (20) And when good toucheth him he is begrudging. (21) Save worshippers. (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion. (24) For the beggar and the destitute. (25) who confirm the Day of Reckoning (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's torment (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors. (31) And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant (32) and standby their witnessing, (33) And those who of their prayer are observant. (34) They will live in gardens with honour. (35)
