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 benevolent, ever-merciful
There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall. (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) No one can defend him against God, the Lord of the exalted positions. (3) The angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years, (4) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) They think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away. (6) but, We see it as near! (7) The Day that the sky will be like the boiling filth of oil, (or molten copper or silver or lead, etc.). (8) And the hills will be light as wool. (9) And no friend will ask 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) his companion (wife), his brother, (12) And his kin that harboured him (13) and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him. (14) But no! There is a raging blaze (15) Eager to roast; (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) And collected [wealth] and hoarded. (18) ۞ Human beings are created greedy. (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) And niggardly when good befalls him (21) except those that pray, (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged (24) For the beggar and the destitute; (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom - (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) those who preserve their chastity (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors - (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) They will live in gardens with honour. (35)
