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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
A questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) (A punishment) from Allah, the Owner of the Elevated Passages. (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) So, (O Prophet), persevere with gracious perseverance. (5) Verily! They see it (the torment) afar off, (6) but We see it is nigh. (7) The day when the sky will become as molten copper, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) even intimate friends will not inquire about their friends, (10) though they may be in one another's sight: [for,] everyone who was lost in sin will on that Day but desire to ransom himself from suffering at the price of his own children, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) And his kin that harboured him (13) And all who are on the earth; so that this might deliver him. (14) By no means! Surely it is a flaming fire (15) stripping away his skin, (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) And amasses (wealth) then shuts it up. (18) ۞ Verily man is impatient by nature: (19) Very nervous when touched by misfortune. (20) And niggardly when good reaches him;- (21) except those who are steadfast (22) Those who are constant in their prayer (23) who, from their wealth is a known right (24) to those who ask [for help] and to the destitute; (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who fear the torment of their Lord, (27) Verily! The torment of their Lord is that before which none can feel secure, (28) And those who guard their chastity, (29) except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed, (30) So those who desire more than this it is they who are the transgressors. (31) and those who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges; (32) who testify to what they have witnessed, (33) And those who guard (the sacredness) of their worship;- (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
