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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
A questioner questioned concerning the doom about to fall (1) which will inevitably seize the disbelievers. (2) (A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent. (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) (Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints. (5) They see the (Day) indeed as a far-off (event): (6) But We see it [as] near. (7) The Day that the sky will be like molten brass, (8) And the mountains shall be as tufts of wool (9) even intimate friends will not inquire about their friends, (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) And his spouse and his brother (12) and his kinsfolk who had stood by him, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, all together, so that then it might deliver him. (14) Never! That is indeed a blazing fire. (15) that will strip off the scalp. (16) It shall call him who turneth back and backslideth. (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) Being greatly grieved when evil afflicts him (20) when good visits him, grudging, (21) Except those who establish prayer. (22) Who are at their prayer constant. (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) For the beggar and the destitute. (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgement, (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's torment (27) Surely the chastisement of their Lord is (a thing) not to be felt secure of-- (28) and who are mindful of their chastity, (29) Save with their wives and those whom their right hands possess, for thus they are not blameworthy; (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors. (31) And those who protect the property entrusted to them, and their agreements. (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies. (33) And those who protect their prayers. (34) Such shall dwell in the Gardens (i.e. Paradise) honoured. (35)
