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 Most Merciful
A beseecher besought the visitation of chastisement, (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) from God, the Lord of the Stairways. (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore be patient, with a beautiful patience; (5) They think that it (the Day of Judgment) is far away. (6) But We see it very near. (7) It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like unto dregs of oil. (8) And then the mountains shall become like unto wool dyed. (9) And no friend will ask after a 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 wife, his brother, (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all those that are in the earth, (wishing) then (that) this might deliver him. (14) By no means! Verily it is a Flame. (15) snatching away the scalp, (16) and it will claim all those who turned their backs [on the true faith] and turned away [from the truth], (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ Human beings are created greedy. (19) When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing. (20) but when good comes upon him, he is grudging (21) except those that pray (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) and in whose possessions there is a due share, acknowledged [by them,] (24) For the beggar and the destitute; (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) Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from. (28) and those who guard their private parts, (29) save from their wives and what their right hands own, then not being blameworthy (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, then it is those who are trespassers. (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) And those who of their prayer are observant. (34) They will be honoured in the Gardens of Bliss. (35)
