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, which none can avert, (2) from God, the Lord of the Stairways. (3) On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him. (4) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) Verily they behold it afar off. (6) but, We see it as near! (7) On the Day the sky will be like murky oil, (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) even intimate friends will not inquire about their friends, (10) Though within sight of one another. The sinner would like to ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his sons, (11) his wife, his brother, (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship) (13) And all, all that is on earth,- so it could deliver him: (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!- (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And collected [wealth] and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man is created of a hasty temperament (19) When evil comes upon him he is impatient; (20) when good visits him, grudging, (21) Except those devoted to Salat (prayers) (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) those who give a due share of their wealth (24) For the beggar who asks, and for the unlucky who has lost his property and wealth, (and his means of living has been straitened); (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgment, (26) who are afraid of the torment of their Lord, (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) And those who guard their chastity, (29) Are free of blame, (30) But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors - (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) and who stand firm whenever they bear witness; (33) and are steadfast in their prayers. (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
