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 questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall (1) to those who deny the truth. No power can hinder God (2) From God, the Lord of the steps (of progression), (3) The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years: (4) Therefore patiently endure, in the best manner (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him). (5) Verily! They see it (the torment) afar off, (6) but We see it is nigh. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) And then the mountains shall become like unto wool dyed. (9) and [when] no friend will ask about his friend, (10) They will be seeing them; the guilty will wish if only he could redeem himself from the punishment of that day, by offering his sons. (11) His wife and his brother, (12) His kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all those who are in the earth then only if the redemption saves him! (14) But nay! for lo! it is the fire of hell (15) Eager to roast; (16) It shall claim him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from spending it in the Cause of Allah). (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) And niggardly when good touches him; (21) except those that pray (22) [and] who incessantly persevere in their prayer (23) And those within whose wealth is a known right (24) for the needy and the deprived, (25) and those who believe in the Day of Judgement (26) And those who are fearful of the chastisement of their Lord-- (27) Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from. (28) who guard their privates (29) Are free of blame, (30) but whoever goes beyond this is a transgressor; (31) And those who protect the property entrusted to them, and their agreements. (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) And those who keep a guard on their prayer, (34) These it is who in the gardens [of paradise] shall be honoured! (35)
