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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
Cloaked one, (1) Arise and warn! (2) Proclaim the glory of your Lord; (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) And pollution shun. (5) do not bestow a favour in the expectation of receiving more in return; (6) And for the sake of your Lord, be patient. (7) Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded, (8) That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,- (9) Far from easy for those without Faith. (10) LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) And gave him abundant wealth (12) And sons dwelling in his presence, (13) To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable! (14) and yet, he greedily desires that I give him even more! (15) By no means! surely he offers opposition to Our communications. (16) I shall inflict on him hardship, (17) Lo! He reflected, and determined -- (18) (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned! (19) yea, he destroys himself, the way he meditates! (20) Then he looked round; (21) Then he frowned and he looked in a bad tempered way; (22) and he turned his back and behaved arrogantly (23) and said: “This (Qur'an) is merely a sorcery of yore; (24) "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!" (25) I will soon fling him into hell. (26) Would that you really knew what hell is! (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) It scorches the mortal. (29) over it are nineteen. (30) We have appointed none but angels to guard the Fire, and made their number only as a trial for the unbelievers, so that those to whom the Book was given are certain and those who believe increase in belief. And that those who were given the Book, and those who believe will not be in doubt. And that those in whose hearts there is a sickness, together with the unbelievers, may say: 'What did Allah intend by this as an example' As such, Allah leaves in error whom He will and He guides whomsoever He will. None knows the hosts of your Lord except He. This is no more than a Reminder to humans. (31)
