The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
A caller supplicated about a punishment to fall on (1) which will inevitably seize the disbelievers. (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of ascent. (3) by which the angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in one Day the duration of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore do thou hold Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment). (5) Lo! they behold it afar off (6) but We see it is nigh. (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 mountains will be like wool, (9) And no friend will ask [anything of] a friend, (10) though they shall be within sight of each other. The guilty one will gladly ransom himself from the torment of that Day by sacrificing his own children, (11) And his wife and his brother. (12) And his family who had stood by him, (13) And all those who are on the earth, to save himself. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) Taking away (burning completely) the head skin! (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) When evil comes upon him he is impatient; (20) and tight-fisted when good fortune visits him, (21) Not so, however, those who consciously turn towards God in prayer. (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) And those in whose wealth there is a fixed portion. (24) For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); (25) And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. (26) And those who are fearful 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 private parts (29) Except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess-- for these surely are not to be blamed, (30) (but whoso seeks after more than that, they are the transgressors), (31) And those who keep their pledges and their covenant, (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) And those who guard their Salat (prayers) well. (34) These it is who in the gardens [of paradise] shall be honoured! (35)
