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
ONE who is minded to ask might ask about the suffering which [in the hereafter] is bound to befall (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) from God, the Lord of the Stairways. (3) To whom the angels and the soul take a day to ascend, whose length is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore endure with a goodly patience. (5) behold, they see it as if far off; (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the sky will become like molten brass, (8) And the mountains shall be as tufts of wool (9) and no bosom friend will enquire about any of his bosom friends (10) although they shall be within sight of one another. The guilty one would fain ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his children, (11) His wife and his brother, (12) And his nearest kindred who shelter him (13) And all those who are on the earth, to save himself. (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) Eager to roast; (16) It will summon whoever turns his back and flees, (17) and amassed wealth and covetously hoarded it. (18) ۞ Lo! man was created anxious, (19) Fretful when evil befalleth him (20) but when they are fortunate, they become niggardly (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth is a recognised right. (24) For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who fear the punishment of their Lord, -- (27) Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure - (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy (30) whereas such as seek to go beyond that [limit] are truly transgressors; (31) And those who keep their pledges and their covenant, (32) And those who stand by their testimony (33) and are steadfast in their prayers. (34) such people will receive due honor in Paradise. (35)
