The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
56 verses, revealed in Mecca after Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil) before The Key (Al-Faatehah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O thou enveloped in thy cloak, (1) Arise and deliver thy warning! (2) And your Lord glorify (3) Purify your inner self, (4) stay away from sins (5) And do not through giving seek thyself to gain, (6) be patient unto your Lord. (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) Truly, that Day will be a Hard Day. (9) and it will not be easy for the unbelievers. (10) Leave Me Alone (to deal) with whom I created Alone (without any means, i.e. Al-Walid bin Al-Mughirah Al-Makhzumi)! (11) And for whom I appointed wealth extended. (12) and sons to be by his side, (13) And for whom I smoothed everything. (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give him even more! (15) Never. He is refractory of Our signs. (16) I shall force him to endure a painful uphill climb! (17) Verily, he thought and plotted; (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) Again, death seize him, how he determined! (20) Then he thought; (21) then he frowned, and scowled, (22) Then he turned back and was big with pride, (23) And said: "This is nothing but the magic of old, (24) This is naught else than speech of mortal man. (25) Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! (26) And what have you understood, what hell is! (27) It neither leaves, nor spares. (28) scorching the flesh; (29) Over it are nineteen [angels]. (30) We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture hath been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What meaneth Allah by this similitude? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will, and whom He will He guideth. None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him. This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals. (31)
