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, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O thou shrouded in thy mantle, (1) Arise, and warn. (2) proclaim the greatness of your Lord, (3) And your garments purify! (4) And all abomination shun! (5) Do not bestow favours in expectation of return, (6) but unto thy Sustainer turn in patience. (7) For when the Trump is sounded (8) That shall be - that Day - a day hard. (9) not of ease, for all who [now] deny the truth! (10) Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!- (11) and designated for him ample wealth, (12) And children to be by his side! (13) And spread [everything] before him, easing [his life]. (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) By no means! He has been stubbornly hostile to Our revelation: (16) I will constrain him to a hard ascent. (17) He reflected and then hatched a scheme. (18) (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! (19) Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!- (20) Then he beheld, (21) then he frowned, and scowled, (22) Then turned he away in pride (23) He said, 'This is naught but a trumped-up sorcery; (24) Nothing more than the speech of a man!" (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) And what do you know what Hell is? (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) Over it are nineteen [angels]. (30) And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. (31)
