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 questioner asked about a Penalty to befall- (1) which will inevitably seize the disbelievers. (2) (A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent. (3) all the angels and all the inspiration [ever granted to man] ascend unto Him [daily,] in a day the length whereof is [like] fifty thousand years… (4) So persevere with becoming patience. (5) Verily! They see it (the torment) afar off, (6) Whereas We see it impending. (7) On the Day the sky will be like murky oil, (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) even intimate friends will not inquire about their friends, (10) as they are given sight of them. The sinner will wish that he might ransom himself from the chastisement of that day even by his sons, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) and his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) and of whoever [else] lives on earth, all of them - so that he could but save himself. (14) Never! That is indeed a blazing fire. (15) tearing away his skin! (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) and who accumulated wealth without spending it for a good purpose. (18) ۞ Lo! man was created anxious, (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) but when good comes upon him, he is grudging (21) Not so are the prayerful. (22) Who are at their prayer constant. (23) And those in whose wealth is a recognised right. (24) For those who beg, and for the needy who cannot even ask. (25) and who accept as true the [coming of the] Day of Judgment; (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) Indeed the punishment of their Lord is not a thing to be unafraid of! (28) And those who guard their sex except from their wives and women slaves of old (29) Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy (30) But he who seeks to go beyond this, these it is that go beyond the limits-- (31) (Those) who keep their trusts and their covenant, (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) and who are constant in their prayers. (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
