The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
A caller supplicated about a punishment to fall on (1) Upon the disbelievers the punishment that none can avert. (2) From God, the Lord of the steps (of progression), (3) by which the angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him in one Day which will last for fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore endure with a goodly patience. (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) The day the sky becomes like molten brass, (8) and the mountains shall be like puffs of wool. (9) And no familiar friend will ask a question of his friend (10) though they may be in one another's sight: [for,] everyone who was lost in sin will on that Day but desire to ransom himself from suffering at the price of his own children, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) and his kinsfolk who had stood by him, (13) and all persons of the earth, if only he could thus save himself. (14) By no means! Verily it is a Flame. (15) stripping away his skin, (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and who accumulated wealth without spending it for a good purpose. (18) ۞ Indeed, the human was created grudging and impatient. (19) When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing. (20) but when good comes upon him, he is grudging (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) and are constant in their Prayer; (23) And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged (24) For the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgment, (26) And those who fear the torment of their Lord, (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) And those who guard their private parts (29) except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed, (30) But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors;- (31) And those who of their trusts and their covenant are keepers. (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) and who take due care of their Prayer: (34) It is these who will be honoured in Gardens. (35)
