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
One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befall (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) (A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent. (3) by which the angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in one Day the duration of which is fifty thousand years. (4) But be patient (O Muhammad) with a patience fair to see. (5) They see it [the Day of Judgement] to be far off, (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) On the Day the sky will be like murky oil, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) No loyal friend will ask another loyal friend (10) though they are in sight of each other. To ransom himself from the punishment of that Day, the sinner will wish that he might even ransom himself by his sons, (11) and of his spouse, and of his brother, (12) And his nearest kindred who shelter him (13) And all those who are in the earth then only if the redemption saves him! (14) But nay! Verily, all [that awaits him] is a raging flame, (15) A remover of exteriors. (16) It shall insistently summon him who turned his back and retreated, (17) and amass [wealth] and thereupon withhold [it from their fellow-men]. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) And refraining, when good reaches him. (21) except those who are steadfast (22) Who are at their prayer constant. (23) And those in whose wealth is a recognised right. (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) who acknowledge the Day of Judgment, (26) and go in fear of the punishment of their Lord, (27) For their Lord's displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity;- (28) And those who protect their private organs (from adultery). (29) except from their wives and slave girls, in which case they are not to be blamed, (30) but those who go beyond that limit are transgressors; (31) And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant (32) and standby their witnessing, (33) And those who keep a guard on their prayer, (34) Those are highly honored in the Gardens. (35)
