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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
A requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) Upon the disbelievers the punishment that none can avert. (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit mount up, in a day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore, [O believers] behave with seemly patience. (5) They surely take it to be far away, (6) while We think that it is near at hand. (7) On that Day the heaven shall become like molten copper, (8) And the mountains shall be as tufts of wool (9) and [when] no friend will ask about his friend, (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) 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) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) It snatches away by the scalps, (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) and amassed wealth and covetously hoarded it. (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he grows niggardly. (21) Save worshippers. (22) and continue at their prayers, (23) and those in whose wealth there is a known right (24) for the beggar and the outcast, (25) and who accept as true the [coming of the] Day of Judgment; (26) And those who fear the displeasure of their Lord,- (27) surely the chastisement of their Lord is a thing none can feel secure from (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for thus they are not blameworthy; (30) So those who desire more than this it is they who are the 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) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
