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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
A questioner asked of a chastisement about to fall 1 for the unbelievers, which none may avert, 2 From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways 3 all the angels and all the inspiration [ever granted to man] ascend unto Him [daily,] in a day the length whereof is [like] fifty thousand years… 4 (Muhammad), exercise patience with no complaints. 5 behold, they see it as if far off; 6 but, We see it as near! 7 It shall befall on a Day whereon the heaven shall become like unto dregs of oil. 8 And the mountains shall be as tufts of wool 9 and no bosom friend will enquire about any of his bosom friends 10 although they shall be within sight of one another. The guilty one would fain ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his children, 11 And his wife and his brother, 12 and of all the kinsfolk who ever sheltered him, 13 And all those who are on the earth, to save himself. 14 By no means! It will be the fierce flame 15 It snatches away by the scalps, 16 It will summon whoever turns his back and flees, 17 And collected [wealth] and hoarded. 18 ۞ Verily man is formed impatient. 19 Very nervous when touched by misfortune. 20 And refraining, when good reaches him. 21 except those that pray, 22 Those who are constant at their prayer 23 In whose wealth a due share is included 24 For the beggar and the destitute. 25 And those who believe the Day of Judgement to be true. 26 and are fearful of the punishment 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 Except with their wives and the bondwomen in their possession, for there is no reproach on them. 30 But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors;- 31 and those who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges; 32 and perform their witnessings, 33 And those who guard their Salat (prayers) well. 34 Those are highly honored in the Gardens. 35
