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 Merciful, the Compassionate
One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befall (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) (A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent. (3) On that Day (of Judgment), long as fifty thousand years, the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him. (4) So be patient (O Muhammad SAW), with a good patience. (5) They see it [the Day of Judgement] to be far off, (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) and the mountains will become like dyed tufts of wool, (9) And no friend will ask after a friend, (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) And the family in which he was. (13) and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him. (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) stripping away his skin, (16) calling him who drew back and turned away, (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) save those that pray (22) and continue at their prayers, (23) those who give a due share of their wealth (24) For those who beg, and for the needy who cannot even ask. (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) and are fearful of the punishment of their Lord; (27) Indeed the punishment of their Lord is not a thing to be unafraid of! (28) And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts from illegal sexual acts). (29) except from their spouses and those whom they rightfully possess [through wedlock], for which they incur no blame -- (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors. (31) and those who fulfil their trusts and their covenants, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who keep a guard on their prayer, (34) all these shall live honourably in the Gardens. (35)
