The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall (1) those who deny the truth. [Know, then, that] nothing can ward it off, (2) From Allah, the Lord of the 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) They surely take it to be far away, (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like unto dregs of oil. (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) and no bosom friend will enquire about any of his bosom friends (10) Though they will be put in sight of each other,- the sinner's desire will be: Would that he could redeem himself from the Penalty of that Day by (sacrificing) his children, (11) His wife and his brother, (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship) (13) And all those who are on the earth, to save himself. (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) tearing away his skin! (16) Inviting (all) such as turn their backs and turn away their faces (from the Right). (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from spending it in the Cause of Allah). (18) ۞ Verily, man (disbeliever) was created very impatient; (19) When evil touches him, impatient, (20) but when good comes upon him, he is grudging (21) save those that pray (22) [and] who incessantly persevere in their prayer (23) and those in whose wealth there is a known right (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) who confirm the Day of Reckoning (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's torment (27) Surely the chastisement of their Lord is (a thing) not to be felt secure of-- (28) And those who preserve their chastity (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 preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) And those who guard their Salat (prayers) well. (34) Those shall be in Gardens, high-honoured. (35)
