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 supplicant asked for a punishment bound to happen (1) Upon the disbelievers the punishment that none can avert. (2) From Allah, Owner of the ascending steps. (3) The angels and Jibreel, ascend towards Him the punishment will befall on a day which spans fifty thousand years. (4) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) Verily they behold it afar off. (6) But We see it [as] near. (7) [It will take place] on a Day when the sky will be like molten lead, (8) and the mountains become like wool, (9) And no friend will ask of a 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 his spouse and his brother. (12) His kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all, all that is on earth,- so it could deliver him: (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) will strip-off the flesh (16) It will claim all such as turn their backs [on what is right,] and turn away [from the truth,] (17) And collected [wealth] and hoarded. (18) ۞ Indeed, man is born impatient: (19) [As a rule,] whenever misfortune touches him, he is filled with self-pity; (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) except those that pray (22) Who are constant at their worship (23) They are those who assign a certain share of their property (24) For him who begs and for him who is denied (good) (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgment, (26) and who stand in dread of their Sustainer's chastisement (27) Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure - (28) and those who guard their private parts, (29) except from their wives and what their right hands own, for these they are not blameworthy. (30) but any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) And those who respect their trusts and covenants; (32) who testify to what they have witnessed, (33) And those who are attentive at their worship. (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
