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 benevolent, ever-merciful
O, you, wrapped in your cloak, (1) arise, and warn! (2) proclaim the greatness of your Lord, (3) thy robes purify (4) And pollution shun. (5) do not bestow a favour in the expectation of receiving more in return; (6) And for the good-will of thy Lord be thou patient. (7) For when the trumpet blows (8) that very Day shall be a day of anguish, (9) It will not be easy for those who deny the truth. (10) Leave him to Me whom I created alone, (11) and to whom I have granted resources in abundance, (12) And sons dwelling in his presence, (13) And made (life) smooth for him. (14) And yet he desires that I should add more! (15) Nay! He is forward unto Our signs; (16) I will cover him with arduous torment. (17) Indeed, he thought and deliberated. (18) death seize him, how he determined! (19) May be then be accursed, how he plotted! (20) Then he looked round; (21) And frowned and puckered his brow, (22) Then he turned away, and was haughty. (23) Then he said: "This is nothing but magic from that of old; (24) this is nothing but the word of a mere mortal!” (25) I shall make him suffer the torment of hell. (26) What could make you conceive what hell-fire is? (27) It neither leaves, nor spares. (28) Burning the skins! (29) Over it are nineteen [powers]. (30) We have not appointed any one but angels as keepers of Hell, and their number that We have fixed is to make it a means of contention for disbelievers, so that those who were given the Book may be certain, and the faith of the believers may have greater increase, and the people of the Book and believers may not be deceived, and the sceptics and infidels may say: "What does God mean by this parable?" That is how God leads whosoever He will astray, and guides whosoever He will. None knows the armies of your Lord save Him self. This is no more than reminder for mankind. (31)
