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
Someone has (needlessly) demanded to experience the torment (of God), (1) To the disbelievers; of it there is no preventer. (2) [since it will come] from God, unto whom there are many ways of ascent: (3) The angels and the Spirit will ascend to Him during a Day the extent of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Wherefore be thou patient with a becoming patience. (5) they see it as being far off; (6) While we behold it nigh: (7) On the day when the heaven shall be as molten copper (8) And the hills become as flakes of wool, (9) And no friend will ask after a friend, (10) though they may see each other. A sinner will wish that he could save himself from the torment of that day by sacrificing his children, (11) his wife, his brother, (12) And his family who had stood by him, (13) and whosoever is in the earth, altogether, so that it might save him. (14) Nay, verily it is a furnace (15) Taking away (burning completely) the head skin! (16) and drag into it anyone who has turned away (from obeying God), (17) And accumulated wealth and hoarded it. (18) ۞ Human beings are created greedy. (19) When they are afflicted, they complain, (20) And, when good befalleth him, grudging; (21) Except those who establish prayer. (22) Who are constant at their worship (23) and those in whose wealth there is a known right (24) For him who begs and for him who is denied (good) (25) those who firmly believe in the Day of Recompense, (26) And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord - (27) Verily the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel secure from. (28) and 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 are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges; (32) and who stand firm whenever they bear witness; (33) and who observe their prayers. (34) These will dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
