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
A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall- (1) which will inevitably seize the disbelievers. (2) From Allah, the Lord of all pinnacles. (3) To whom the angels and the soul take a day to ascend, whose length is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore do thou hold Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment). (5) They think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away. (6) Whereas We see it impending. (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) And no friend will ask of a friend, (10) (Though) they shall be made to see each other. The guilty one would fain redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children, (11) His wife and his brother, (12) His kindred who sheltered him, (13) and all the people of the earth, if that could deliver him. (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!- (16) It calls out to him who reverted and turned away. (17) And amasses (wealth) then shuts it up. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) Not so, however, those who consciously turn towards God in prayer. (22) who are steadfast in prayer; (23) They are those who assign a certain share of their property (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (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) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) who guard their privates (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors - (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
