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 (Muhammad SAW) enveloped (in garments)! (1) Arise and warn, (2) Glorify your Lord, (3) cleanse your clothes, (4) And stay away from idols. (5) And bestow not favors that you may receive again with increase, (6) and be patient unto thy Lord. (7) For when the trumpet shall sound, (8) That Day will be a difficult day (9) For the infidels, not easy. (10) LEAVE Me alone [to deal] with him whom I have created alone, (11) and to whom I have granted resources vast, (12) And sons present by his side. (13) and for whom I have smoothed the way (to power and riches), (14) and who still greedily desires that I should bestow upon him more. (15) Nay! He is forward unto Our signs; (16) On him I shall impose a fearful doom. (17) For he had thought and calculated. (18) And woe to him! How he plotted!- (19) And again perish he! How maliciously he devised! (20) Then he looked round; (21) Then he frowned and he scowled; (22) Then he turned back and was arrogant (23) He said, 'This is naught but a trumped-up sorcery; (24) this is nothing but the word of a mere mortal!” (25) [Hence,] I shall cause him to endure hell-fire [in the life to come]! (26) And what do you know what Hell is? (27) It leaves nothing, nor does it spare; (28) Darkening and changing the colour of man! (29) Above it are nineteen guards. (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)
