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 questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) [It is] from Allah, owner 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) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) they see it as being far off; (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) On that Day the heaven shall become like molten copper, (8) and the mountains shall be like puffs of wool. (9) And no friend will ask [anything of] a friend, (10) Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children (11) And his spouse and his brother. (12) And his kin that harboured him (13) And all those that are in the earth, (wishing) then (that) this might deliver him. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) and drag into it anyone who has turned away (from obeying God), (17) And masseth and then hoardeth. (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) Being greatly grieved when evil afflicts him (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he grows niggardly. (21) Except those who pray, (22) Who are constant at their worship (23) And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion. (24) For the beggar and the destitute. (25) who confirm the Day of Doom (26) and who stand in dread of their Sustainer's chastisement (27) Verily! The torment of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure, (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 whoso seeks after more than that, they are the transgressors), (31) And those who are to their trusts and promises attentive (32) and standby their witnessing, (33) and (finally) those who do not miss their ritual - prayers at the prescribed times; (34) Those shall be in gardens, honored. (35)
