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 Gracious, Most Merciful
A supplicant asked for a punishment bound to happen (1) The infidels, of which there is no averter. (2) From God, the Lord of the steps (of progression), (3) The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years: (4) Therefore, [O believer,] endure all adversity with goodly patience: (5) they see it as being far off; (6) And We behold it nigh. (7) On that Day the heaven shall become like molten copper, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) And no friend inquires after friend (10) Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children (11) And his wife and his brother, (12) And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) And all those who are in the earth then only if the redemption saves him! (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) Eager to roast; (16) and it shall call him who withdrew and turned his back (17) and amassed (riches) and hoarded. (18) ۞ VERILY, man is born with a restless disposition. (19) when evil visits him, impatient, (20) and tight-fisted when good fortune visits him, (21) except those that pray, (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) And those in whose riches is a known right. (24) For the needy and those dispossessed, (25) And those who accept the truth of the judgment day (26) And those who fear the displeasure of their Lord,- (27) Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from. (28) those who preserve their chastity (29) Are free of blame, (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, then it is those who are trespassers. (31) and those who fulfil their trusts and their covenants, (32) and who stand firm whenever they bear witness; (33) And those who [carefully] maintain their prayer: (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
