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 Beneficent, the Merciful
A caller supplicated about a punishment to fall on 1 the unbelievers which none can prevent. 2 From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways 3 To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. 4 So persevere with becoming patience. 5 They deem it to be remote. 6 but We see it near. 7 The day when the sky will be like molten silver. 8 And the mountains will be like wool, 9 And no friend inquires after friend 10 Though they will be given sight of them. The guilty man will long to be able to ransom himself from the punishment of that day at the price of his children 11 his wife, his brother, 12 his kin who sheltered him, 13 And all that are in the earth, so that it might save him. 14 But never. It is pure white flame 15 Plucking out (his being) right to the skull!- 16 It will summon whoever turns his back and flees, 17 And collected [wealth] and hoarded. 18 ۞ Indeed, man is born impatient: 19 When they are afflicted, they complain, 20 If good comes to him he holds back his hand, 21 Except the observers of prayer - 22 who are constant in prayer; 23 those in whose wealth is a right known 24 For the beggar and the destitute. 25 And those who accept the truth of the judgment day 26 And those who fear the torment of their Lord, 27 surely the chastisement of their Lord is a thing none can feel secure from 28 And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts from illegal sexual acts). 29 Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed, 30 And whosoever seeketh beyond that, then it is those who are the trespassers 31 And those who protect the property entrusted to them, and their agreements. 32 And those who stand firm in their testimonies. 33 and who observe their prayers. 34 These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. 35
