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 Compassionate, the Merciful
AN INQUIRER ASKED for the affliction that is to come (1) Upon the disbelievers, which none can avert, (2) [since it will come] from God, unto whom there are many ways of ascent: (3) To Him the angels and the Spirit (Gabriel) ascend in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years. (4) Therefore be patient, with a beautiful patience; (5) They surely take it to be far away, (6) while We think that it is near at hand. (7) On that Day the heavens shall become like molten brass, (8) and the mountains become like wool, (9) And friend shall not ask of friend (10) although they shall be within sight of one another. The guilty one would fain ransom himself from the torment of that Day by offering his children, (11) his wife, his brother, (12) and of all the kinsfolk who ever sheltered him, (13) and all those on earth. (14) But no! There is a raging blaze (15) Eager to roast; (16) It calls out to him who reverted and turned away. (17) And hoarded (wealth) and withheld it. (18) ۞ Surely man was created fretful, (19) when misfortune touches him he starts lamenting, (20) but when they are fortunate, they become niggardly (21) Except those who establish prayer. (22) and constant in their prayers. (23) those in whose wealth is a right known (24) to those who ask [for help] and to the destitute; (25) And those who believe in the Day of Judgment, (26) and go in fear of the punishment of their Lord, (27) the punishment of their Lord is not something for them to feel secure of, (28) And those who guard their chastity, (29) except from their wives and what their right hands own, for these they are not blameworthy. (30) But whosoever seeks beyond that, then it is those who are trespassers. (31) and who are faithful to their trusts and to their pledges: (32) Who uphold their testimonies, (33) and who observe their prayers. (34) Those shall dwell in Gardens, honoured. (35)
