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
A beseecher besought the visitation of chastisement, (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) (A punishment) from Allah, the Owner of the Elevated Passages. (3) The angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years, (4) So be patient (O Muhammad SAW), with a good patience. (5) Surely they think it to be far off, (6) But We see it very near. (7) The day when the sky will be like molten silver. (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) And friend shall not ask of friend (10) Though they shall be made to see one another [(i.e. on the Day of Resurrection), there will be none but see his father, children and relatives, but he will neither speak to them nor will ask them for any help)], - the Mujrim, (criminal, sinner, disbeliever, etc.) would desire to ransom himself from the punishment of that Day by his children. (11) and of his spouse, and of his brother, (12) the kinsmen who gave him shelter, (13) And whoever is on earth entirely [so] then it could save him. (14) No! Indeed, it is the Flame [of Hell], (15) Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!- (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from spending it in the Cause of Allah). (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) save those that pray (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion. (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who fear the displeasure of their Lord,- (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed, (30) But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors - (31) who honor their trust and promises, (32) And those who stand by their testimony (33) and who guard their prayers [from all worldly intent]. (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
