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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall- (1) the unbelievers which none can prevent. (2) From Allah, the Lord of the ways of Ascent. (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) They surely take it to be far away, (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) and the mountains will be like tufts of wool, (9) And not a friend shall ask a friend, (10) Though they will be put in sight of each other,- the sinner's desire will be: Would that he could redeem himself from the Penalty of that Day by (sacrificing) his children, (11) His wife and his brother, (12) And the family in which he was. (13) and all the people of the earth, if that could deliver him. (14) By no means! Surely it is a flaming fire (15) tearing away his skin! (16) It invites he who turned his back [on truth] and went away [from obedience] (17) and amassed wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ VERILY, man is born with a restless disposition. (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he selfishly withholds it [from others]. (21) except those who are steadfast (22) Who persevere in devotion, (23) And in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged (24) for the beggar and the outcast, (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgement, (26) And those who are fearful of the chastisement of their Lord-- (27) for none is secure from the punishment of their Lord, (28) who guard their carnal desires (29) save from their wives and what their right hands own, then not being blameworthy (30) whereas such as seek to go beyond that [limit] are truly transgressors; (31) And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) And those who are mindful of their moral obligations. (34) They will be in gardens, honored. (35)
