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 Merciful, the Compassionate
A requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) to those who deny the truth. No power can hinder God (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (3) The angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years, (4) Therefore, [O believers] behave with seemly patience. (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) while We think that it is near at hand. (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) and the mountains will become like dyed tufts of wool, (9) And no friend will ask concerning his friend. (10) though they may be in one another's sight: [for,] everyone who was lost in sin will on that Day but desire to ransom himself from suffering at the price of his own children, (11) His wife and his brother, (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) and all the people of the earth, if that could deliver him. (14) By no means! For the raging flames of the fire (15) A fire that melts the hide. (16) It will summon whoever turns his back and flees, (17) And accumulated wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) Fretful when evil touches him; (20) And, when good befalleth him, grudging; (21) except those who are steadfast (22) Those who remain constant in their Salat (prayers); (23) who, from their wealth is a known right (24) to those who ask [for help] and to the destitute; (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who are fearful of the chastisement of their Lord-- (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) and those who guard their private parts, (29) Except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed, (30) but any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) all these shall live honourably in the Gardens. (35)
