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 benevolent, ever-merciful
A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall (1) for the unbelievers, which none may avert, (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) To whom the angels and the soul take a day to ascend, whose length is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore be patient, with a beautiful patience; (5) Indeed, they see it [as] distant, (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) The day the sky becomes like molten brass, (8) And the mountains will be like flakes of wool, (9) no loyal friend shall question loyal friend, (10) though they shall be within sight of each other. The guilty one will gladly ransom himself from the torment of that Day by sacrificing his own children, (11) his companion (wife), his brother, (12) his kinsmen who gave him refuge (from hardship) (13) And all those who are on the earth, to save himself. (14) By no means! Verily, it will be the Fire of Hell! (15) will strip-off the flesh (16) It calls out to him who reverted and turned away. (17) who amassed and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man is greedy by nature. (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) And when good toucheth him he is begrudging. (21) Except those who establish prayer. (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) who, from their wealth is a known right (24) for such as ask [for help] and such as are deprived [of what is good in life]; (25) And those who believe in the Day of Recompense (26) And those who are fearful of their Lord's doom - (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) and those who guard their private parts, (29) Except with their wives and the bondwomen in their possession, for there is no reproach on them. (30) So those who desire more than this it is they who are the transgressors. (31) and who preserve their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies. (33) And those who protect their prayers. (34) They will live in gardens with honour. (35)
