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 you who are clothed! (1) Arise, and warn, (2) Proclaim the glory of your Lord; (3) And thine raiment purify. (4) And uncleanness do 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) For when the trumpet is sounded, (8) It will be a day of distress, (9) For the disbelievers - not easy. (10) Let Me alone with him whom I created lonely. (11) And then granted him resources in abundance. (12) and children as [love's] witnesses, (13) and made all things smooth for him; (14) Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);- (15) Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations. (16) I shall oblige him to (climb a slippery mountain in the Hell-fire called As-Sa'ud, or to) face a severe torment! (17) For lo! he did consider; then he planned - (18) May he be accursed, how he planned! (19) Again, ruin seize him, how did he hatch a scheme? (20) Then he beheld, (21) And frowned and puckered his brow, (22) Then he turned back and was haughty; (23) Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old; (24) This is naught but the word of a mortal. (25) Anon shall I roast him into the Scorching Fire. (26) and what will teach thee what is Sakar? (27) It neither spares, nor releases, (28) making [all truth] visible to mortal man. (29) over it are nineteen. (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)
