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 Beneficent, the Merciful
A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall (1) The infidels, of which there is no averter. (2) [It is] from Allah, owner of the ways of ascent. (3) Whereby the angels ascend unto Him and also the spirit, On a Day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore, [O believers] behave with seemly patience. (5) They see it [the Day of Judgement] to be far off, (6) but We see it is nigh. (7) The day when the sky will be like molten silver. (8) and the mountains will become like dyed tufts of wool, (9) And no friend will ask concerning his friend. (10) though they may see each other. A sinner will wish that he could save himself from the torment of that day by sacrificing his children, (11) And his spouse and his brother. (12) and of all the kinsfolk who ever sheltered him, (13) and all those on earth. (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) will strip-off the flesh (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and amassed wealth and covetously hoarded it. (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 who are steadfast (22) [and] who incessantly persevere in their prayer (23) And those within whose wealth is a known right (24) for such as ask [for help] and such as are deprived [of what is good in life]; (25) who confirm the Day of Doom (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) for none may ever feel secure from the punishment of their Lord; (28) who guard their carnal desires (29) Save in regard to their spouses or those whom their right hands own; so verily they are not blameworthy (30) but any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) and perform their witnessings, (33) And those who guard their Salat (prayers) well. (34) Those shall be in gardens, honored. (35)
