The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
44 verses, revealed in Mecca after Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah) before The News (Al-Naba')
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall (1) to those who deny the truth. No power can hinder God (2) a chastisement from Allah, the Lord of the ascending steps, (3) To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) So be thou patient with a sweet patience; (5) Surely they think it to be far off, (6) But We see it (quite) near. (7) The day the sky becomes like molten brass, (8) and the mountains become like wool, (9) And friend shall not ask of 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) His wife and his brother, (12) And the nearest of his kinsfolk who gave him shelter, (13) And all that are in the earth, if then it might deliver him. (14) By no means! for it would be the Fire of Hell!- (15) A fire that melts the hide. (16) It shall insistently summon him who turned his back and retreated, (17) who amassed and hoarded. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) Irritable (discontented) when evil touches him; (20) If good comes to him he holds back his hand, (21) except those that pray, (22) Those who are regular in their prayers. (23) They are those who assign a certain share of their property (24) For the needy and those dispossessed, (25) and who accept as true the [coming of the] Day of Judgment; (26) and go in fear of the chastisement of their Lord (27) Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from. (28) and those who guard their private parts, (29) Are free of blame, (30) But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors - (31) (Those) who keep their trusts and their covenant, (32) And those who are in their testimonies upright (33) And those who guard their Salat (prayers) well. (34) Those shall be in Gardens, high-honoured. (35)
