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 beseecher besought the visitation of chastisement, (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can repel, (2) No one can defend him against God, the Lord of the exalted positions. (3) by which the angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in one Day the duration of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore, [O believers] behave with seemly patience. (5) Surely they think it to be far off, (6) but We see it near at hand. (7) [It will take place] on a Day when the sky will be like molten lead, (8) And the hills become as flakes of wool, (9) And no friend will ask after a friend, (10) as they are given sight of them. The sinner will wish that he might ransom himself from the chastisement of that day even by his sons, (11) And his wife and his brother (12) his kin who sheltered him, (13) and all the people of the earth, if that could deliver him. (14) By no means! Surely it is a flaming fire (15) stripping away his skin, (16) and drag into it anyone who has turned away (from obeying God), (17) And collect (wealth) and hide it (from use)! (18) ۞ Indeed man is created very impatient, greedy. (19) When evil toucheth him, he is bewailing. (20) and tight-fisted when good fortune visits him, (21) except those who are steadfast (22) Those who remain constant in their Salat (prayers); (23) In whose wealth a due share is included (24) For the needy and those dispossessed, (25) who confirm the Day of Doom (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe - (28) and those who guard their private parts, (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) but any who seeks to go beyond that, it is indeed they who are the transgressors, (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) And those who keep a guard on their prayer, (34) Those shall be in gardens, honored. (35)
