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 Most Merciful
A questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall (1) to those who deny the truth. No power can hinder God (2) From Allah, Owner of the ascending steps. (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore do thou hold Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment). (5) Lo! they behold it afar off (6) Whereas We see it impending. (7) On the Day the sky will be like murky oil, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) No loyal friend will ask another loyal friend (10) Though they shall be made to see one another. Fain would the guilty ransom himself from the torment of that Day by his children. (11) His wife and his brother, (12) And his kin that sheltered him. (13) and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him. (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) Eager to roast; (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Human beings are created greedy. (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) And when good touches him, withholding [of it], (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) Those who remain constant in their Salat (prayers); (23) And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion. (24) for the beggar and the outcast, (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord - (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) And those who protect their private organs (from adultery). (29) Are free of blame, (30) And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers (31) (Those) who keep their trusts and their covenant, (32) and who stand firm whenever they bear witness; (33) And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;- (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
