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 doubter once demanded that punishment be immediately meted out, (1) The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-- (2) (A punishment) from Allah, the Owner of the Elevated Passages. (3) The angels and Jibreel, ascend towards Him the punishment will befall on a day which spans fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore do thou hold Patience,- a Patience of beautiful (contentment). (5) Verily they think that the chastisement is far off, (6) While we behold it nigh: (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) and the mountains will become like tufts of wool, (9) no loyal friend shall question loyal friend, (10) They will be shown each other. The criminal will wish that he could be ransomed from the punishment of that Day by his children (11) His wife and his brother, (12) the kinsmen who gave him shelter, (13) And all that are in the earth, if then it might deliver him. (14) But no! There is a raging blaze (15) Eager to roast; (16) and it will claim all those who turned their backs [on the true faith] and turned away [from the truth], (17) Who amasses and then hoards. (18) ۞ Verily man is impatient by nature: (19) Fretful when evil touches him; (20) but when good comes upon him, he is grudging (21) Except those who closely follow (the Book of God), (22) and constant in their prayers. (23) And those in whose riches is a known right. (24) For him who begs and for him who is denied (good) (25) And those who believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe - (28) and who are mindful of their chastity, (29) except in regard to their spouses and those whom their right hands possess, for in regard to them they are not reproachable, (30) And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers (31) And those who respect their trusts and covenants; (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) And those who are mindful of their moral obligations. (34) Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). (35)
