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 Compassionate, the Merciful
A requester seeks the punishment that will take place (1) The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-- (2) a chastisement from Allah, the Lord of the ascending steps, (3) (Whereby) the angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day whereof the span is fifty thousand years. (4) So persevere with becoming patience. (5) behold, men look upon that [reckoning] as something far away (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) And the hills will be light as wool. (9) even intimate friends will not inquire about their friends, (10) They will be seeing them; the guilty will wish if only he could redeem himself from the punishment of that day, by offering his sons. (11) his companion (wife), his brother, (12) And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) and of whoever [else] lives on earth, all of them - so that he could but save himself. (14) No, in truth, it is a Furnace! (15) Taking away (burning completely) the head skin! (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and amassed wealth and covetously hoarded it. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) If evil befalls him he is perturbed; (20) but when they are fortunate, they become niggardly (21) Except those who establish prayer. (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) And those within whose wealth is a known right (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) who confirm the Day of Doom (26) and are fearful of the punishment of their Lord; (27) Surely the chastisement of their Lord is (a thing) not to be felt secure of-- (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 whosoever seeks beyond that, they are the transgressors. (31) and those who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges; (32) And those who are firm upon their testimonies. (33) and who observe their prayers. (34) Those shall dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
