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
ONE who is minded to ask might ask about the suffering which [in the hereafter] is bound to befall (1) The unbelievers-- there is none to avert it-- (2) From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways (3) by which the angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in one Day the duration of which is fifty thousand years. (4) So be patient (O Muhammad SAW), with a good patience. (5) Lo! they behold it afar off (6) And We see it nigh. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) And the mountains will be like wool, (9) And friend shall not ask of friend (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) And his spouse and his brother (12) And his kindred who sheltered him, (13) And all those that are in the earth, (wishing) then (that) this might deliver him. (14) By no means! It will be the fierce flame (15) snatching away the scalp, (16) It calleth him who turned and fled (from truth), (17) who amassed and hoarded. (18) ۞ Verily, man (disbeliever) was created very impatient; (19) bewailing when evil befalls him, (20) and whenever good fortune comes to him, he grows niggardly. (21) Except the observers of prayer - (22) Those who remain constant in their Salat (prayers); (23) And those in whose wealth there is a known right, (24) for the impoverished nonrequester and the requester, (25) and who accept as true the [coming of the] Day of Judgment; (26) And those who fear 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 from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed - (30) But those who trespass beyond this are transgressors;- (31) And those who fulfil their trusts and covenants, (32) And those who stand firm in their testimonies; (33) and who are constant in their prayers. (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
