The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
A beseecher besought the visitation of chastisement, (1) for the unbelievers, which none may avert, (2) From God, the Lord of the steps (of progression), (3) by which the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him in one Day which will last for fifty thousand years. (4) But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see. (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) Whereas We see it impending. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) And no friend inquires after friend (10) though they are in sight of each other. To ransom himself from the punishment of that Day, the sinner will wish that he might even ransom himself by his sons, (11) his companion wife, his brother, (12) his kin who sheltered him, (13) And whoever is on earth entirely [so] then it could save him. (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!- (16) and drag into it anyone who has turned away (from obeying God), (17) Who amasses and then hoards. (18) ۞ VERILY, man is born with a restless disposition. (19) When evil touches him, impatient, (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) Except those devoted to Salat (prayers) (22) Those who are constant at their prayer (23) They are those who assign a certain share of their property (24) For the beggar and the destitute; (25) And those who accept the truth of the judgment day (26) who are afraid of the torment of their Lord, (27) Lo! the doom of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure - (28) And those who of their private parts are guards. (29) save from their wives and what their right hands own, then not being blameworthy (30) but those who go beyond that limit are transgressors; (31) And those who are to their trusts and promises attentive (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies. (33) and are steadfast in their prayers. (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
