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
There hath asked an asker for the torment about to befall. (1) The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off,- (2) From God, the Lord of the steps (of progression), (3) On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him. (4) So be thou patient with a sweet patience; (5) They see the (Day) indeed as a far-off (event): (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like unto dregs of oil. (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) And no friend will ask after 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 kinsfolk who had stood by him, (13) And all that are in the earth, so that it might save him. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) tearing away his skin! (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and amassed wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Truly man was created very impatient;- (19) Fretful when evil befalleth him (20) And when good toucheth him he is begrudging. (21) But not so the worshippers (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) for such as ask [for help] and such as are deprived [of what is good in life]; (25) And those who hold to the truth of the Day of Judgment; (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom - (27) Surely the chastisement of their Lord is (a thing) not to be felt secure of-- (28) who guard their privates (29) except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed, (30) but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor; (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) and who stand firm whenever they bear witness; (33) And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;- (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
